Continuing with the Passage-maker range, Elite Marine Design has been approached to design this 19m Raised pilothouse for a local client.
Hull form is semi-displacement and will be fin stabilized. To be powered by a single large capacity engine, a cruise speed of 10knts is predicted with a top speed of 15kts. Twin engine installation is also an option.
To be used predominantly for coastal cruising, the vessel will have fuel capacity and range for passages to the Pacific Is. The fuel will be divided into primary and long range tanks.
The accommodation layout features a full width master stateroom and ensuite accessed from the saloon completely separate from the frd accommodation which will be accessed from the pilothouse and consist of a four berth frd cabin with large bunks and generous stowage.
The guest stateroom is to stb with large head and shower area to port.
As with many of this style of motor yacht the focal point when under way is the pilothouse which feature’s a generous raised seating area aft of the helm and to have port and stb doors for deck access and ventilation.
The main-saloon and galley are aft and down from the pilothouse with direct access to the cockpit. The galley, which is situated aft and to port so as to service both the main dinning and el fresco dinette with ease and equipped with the normal household appliances commonly found aboard vessels of this caliber, the saloon will feature built in settees with stowage under as apposed to loose furniture.
As the clients main interest is in water sports and swimming, a large platform has been incorporated with inbuilt boarding ladder and quarter rails. Also built into the transom is a nifty pull out BBQ that when stowed will be completely flush.
The bridge deck has provision for a tender that will be launched and retrieved with a hydraulic davit. The flybridge area has been kept reasonable minimalistic as the main helm is situated in the pilothouse. Experience has proven to this particular client the flybridge is rarely used.
Hull construction is to be solid GRP bottom using vinyl ester resin with full length longitudinal’s and structural bulkheads. Topsides will be cored composite with the decks overlaid with teak
