This sleek no-nonsense Sportfisher is a real head turner with amazing performance and seakeeping abilities. The overall length is 68’ and is powered with twin MTU 1200hp engines. 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.
Construction is Airex foam and epoxy resin to ABS specification. Interior fit-out is dark stained oak, with a modern linear style finish. Some features incorporated are an internal stairway to the flybridge, an al-fresco dining area with electric window from the galley, built-in coffee machine to name a few.
The hull form is deep V fine entry for the ultimate in head sea performance. Maximum beam across the chines aft also provides a stable fishing platform. The transom below the waterline has been chamfered forward to greatly assist when backing down. 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 our designs for some years, eliminating chine slap at rest making for a peaceful nights sleep.
