Owner insight: Matt Kutcher on his DutchCraft yacht Go-N-Hot

Written by Laura Nicholls

Now anchored in Florida, the custom DutchCraft 56 Go-N-Hot was delivered to her owners by DutchCraft during the spring of 2020 – just in time for a summer spent with the family cruising in and around Bimini and Nassau in The Bahamas. Knowing exactly what he wanted after owning all kinds of small boats from a young age, yacht owner Matt Kutcher was keen to make his big ideas a reality.DutchCraft DC56 Go n Hot Photo: DutchCraftAs he explains, there’s a story behind both the hull colour and the name: “I was looking at different colours and soon decided that there is no cooler colour than the Tiffany green. When you give a Tiffany box to someone, it doesn't matter what's inside!” The coral green yacht was named in admiration of the owner’s unique occupation: “I’m a pyrotechnic – I blow stuff up for the movies! So having said ‘going hot’ a million times on set before an explosion, it seemed like a good name for the boat.” Which, Kutcher assures us, is not set to explode any time soon.DutchCraft DC56 Go n Hot Photo: DutchCraftHow to fit in the toys was an essential part of the design for Kutcher, and the team at DutchCraft helped to reconfigure the layout to suit his needs. “The biggest customisation was moving the Jet Ski to the bow instead of having that area as a sunbathing spot. By doing this, it frees up the entire back platform, keeps it clutter-free and gives us another platform to play off,” Kutcher says. “We spend our time on board fishing, paddling, snorkelling, diving, sunbathing and dining and so we needed clever storage for all of our gear and the SeaBobs.”DutchCraft DC56 Go n Hot Photo: DutchCraft“Keeping her comfortable is easy thanks to the Humphree stabiliser and trim system, which I chose because it works really well when underway.” Kutcher goes on to explain why he was so impressed with how the DutchCraft design came together during the 12-month build. “They made sure that form follows function with her slick utilitarian design,” he says. “The beauty is that the boat can be handled with just one person and uses every square inch to either live or play.”DutchCraft DC56 Go n Hot Photo: DutchCraftStaying overnight is a pleasure, as the four rooms are separated among eight guests who can choose between three bathrooms. “It balances out really well,” Kutcher explains. There is also a flybridge with its own dining table and convertible seating, a wet bar and double-width seating at the navigation station. With another dining-seating area and wet bar on the main deck, there is seating for up to 36 guests on board.DutchCraft company photoPhoto: DutchCraftAll of the DutchCraft yachts are built with a robust, spacious and practical design.
