This world cruising, trawler-style vessel utilizes state of the art fuel efficient design technology. Extensively model tested at the University of British Columbia, Canada, tank testing facility. This hull form is designed to perform exceptionally well in a seaway. She has exceeded tank test results in the actual open ocean, heavy weather cruising en-route to California, not long after the initial launch.
Built to ABS Class 1 Certification for unrestricted ocean use and extended offshore cruising. The hull form and bulbous bow are fourth generation technology. The detailed model test results were used to optimize the proportions of the vessel and combine many years of design work. The vessel features a round bilge, full displacement hull form with fine entrance and flattened stern sections, incorporates a shallow draft positive flow propeller tunnel for protection.
The controllable pitch propeller maintains ultimate prop efficiency over a wide range of speeds, wind and wave induced loads. The unique bulbous bow is designed to dampen pitching and increase fuel efficiency. The single 1300 hp MAN diesel with a large diameter 45" (CP) controllable pitch propeller, provides optimum performance and fuel efficiency, making this vessel up to 30% more efficient than the average cruisers. A hydraulic "get home" propulsion system onboard provides extra piece of mind.
At a long range cruise speed of 10 knots, it takes less than 100 hp to move this vessel along with a range of 7,000 nautical miles. Top speed as designed and tank tested with the single 1300 hp MAN diesel, is 14.8 knots providing a range of 1700 nautical miles.
At 9 knots including the main generator, she burns approximately 8 gph.
Luxury and comfort for the owners and guests, this vessel is finished with a finely crafted Honduran mahogany interior and exceptionally detailed craftsmanship.
