19.8m Sportfisher - Huntress
This sleek no nonsense sportfisher is a real head turner with amazing performance and sea-keeping. The overall length is 68’ and is powered with twin MTU 1200hp engines; the propellers are in tunnels to reduce shaft angle and overall draft which increases efficiency. With over 8000L fuel capacity fishing or cruising anywhere in the Pacific is possible. The fuel has been separated into primary and long-range tanks, which are all integral. Construction is Airex foam and epoxy resin to ABS specification. Interior fit out is dark stained oak to a modern linear style. Some features incorporated are internal stair way to the fly-bridge, al-fresco dinning area and electric window from the galley, built in coffee machine to name but a few. Hull form is deep V fine entry for the ultimate in head sea performance keeping maximum beam across the chines aft to provide a stable fishing platform. The transom below the water line has been chamfered forward to greatly assist when backing down. This chamfer generates lift and also turns water down and away to prevent flooding of the cockpit. With silent chines incorporated into the topsides just above the loaded waterline and one planning strake per side the hull will give a dry soft ride in all sea conditions. Silent chines have been a feature of my designs for some years; their position eliminates chine slap at rest making the hull totally silent. At speed the wash is turned down and out from the hull keeping the vessel dry.
