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 have fin stabilisers.  Powered by a single large capacity engine a cruise speed of 10kts is predicted with a top speed of 15kts.  Twin engine installation is also an option.  Predominantly to be used for coastal cruising the vessel will have fuel capacity and range for passages to the Pacific Islands. Therefore 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.
Guest stateroom is to stb with large head and shower area to port.  Main-saloon and galley are aft with direct access to the cockpit.  Galley is situated aft and to port so as to service both the main dinning and el fresco dinette with ease.  Equipped with the normal household appliances commonly found aboard vessels of this caliber, the saloon features built in settees with stowage under as apposed to loose furniture.

Our clients main interest is water sports and swimming so 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.

As with many of this style motor yacht the focal point when under way is the pilothouse which feature’s a generous raised seating area aft of the helm with port and stb doors for deck access and ventilation.  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.
