A superyacht sport fisher
Published: Wednesday, 04 May 2011
Sharp Design Naval Architects and Evolution Yachts Worldwide (our Florida) have co-developed new concepts for a 40 and 53-metre cockpit motor yacht with design styling and performance modeled on the traditional sport fisher platform. Harsh angles have been eliminated, while a plumb stern and enclosed enclosed swim step visually frame the sweeping hull. The stainless steel stem cap gives a retro look reminiscent of the early commuter yacht style of the 1930s.
Below the waterline, the hull form is a deep-vee hard chine style with a higher than normal length to beam ratio for added hydrodynamic efficiency, while hull tunnels accommodate steerable Zeus pod drives and trim tabs. The upper deck has the main piloting station with all vessel command and control equipment and wrap around windshield, Captain’s suite, small lounges inside and out and exterior day head convenient to the upper deck and observation bucket. The fittings and arrangements are all superyacht. Powered by twin MTU M93 engines operating contra-rotating Zeus pod drives, the Evo has a projected top speed of 33 knots, with economical cruising in the 20+ knot range.
