As with the two previous yachts in the range, Blake is comprised of a lightweight GRP hull and aluminium superstructure. Designed for long-range cruising, she comes with a 4,000 nm range at 11 knots as well as several features that controls vibration and sound in key areas of the vessel for an experience that is essentially noise free.
Guest accommodation is spread over all three interior decks with a lounge in the upper saloon that can be converted into a VIP cabin in addition to the four guest cabins on the lower deck and full beam master stateroom on the main deck.
The two Caterpillar C32 Acert engines each produce 1,193 kW, delivering a cruising speed of about 14 knots and a top speed of 15.5 knots.
