Jarrett Bay Boatworks has announced the start of the construction of their largest custom sportfish to date. Hull 62 will measure 27.43 metres, and is expected to be ready for delivery in spring 2017.
The owner reportedly has a high knowledge of boats and high tech engineering, and has a passion to competitively fish anywhere. In putting together the team to create the owner’s vision, Jarrett Bay included firms from Michigan, Rhode Island, Florida, Washington and North Carolina.
Looking to make use of the latest innovations in building techniques to maximise strength, speed and overall quality, the Jarrett Bay 90 will feature substantial use of titanium and carbon fibre composites, including a carbon fibre bridge, cabin, decks and stringer system. To ensure maximum performance, extensive virtual tank testing, actual in-water tank testing, a detailed weight study, as well as composite testing are notable aspects of this build’s design process.
Thanks to substantial weight reduction and increased structural strength, the end product will boast reduced loads, making the boat easier to handle and fuel efficient, all while yielding increased range and greater shear strength.
She will accommodate guests and crew over six staterooms, with the both the master and the crew quarters being full beam. The master suite will feature an office. The shipyard are keeping specifics of the materials and build details secret at the moment. State of the art electronics are still being specified but will include Seakeeper’s latest stabiliser, high end centrally located A/V equipment, as well as redundant commercial grade electronics. Carrying 4,500 gallons of fuel, the Jarrett Bay 90 will reportedly have the range and speed to travel anywhere fast.
The owner’s salesman, John D Riggs, comments, “It’s always great to play a role in delivering boating dreams, but this delivery and build process is one I’m especially proud to be a part of. The friendships I have forged along the way will make it all the more exciting when we have that first blue at the back of the boat. I can’t wait to see if that’s in North Carolina, Panama, or the Vanuatu Islands!”
