The new 38m Dayboat from Danish Yacht has just started build in Skagen in Denmark, following tank testing of hull forms in Gothenburg in December. Reinforcing the successful relationship between Danish Yacht and the Norwegian naval architect, Espen Oeino, this exciting project is set to pioneer a new area of powerboat design. With her carbon fibre hull, giving a weight saving of at least 25% over conventional composite build, build number 116 is expected to achieve speeds in excess of 50 knots, powered by twin diesel engines.
Build number 116 will have an astonishing stopping distance of about 3 boat lengths at 50 knots with her jet propulsion and handling her will be a dream, with her calculated design parameters to provide tight turning circles at speed. Nothing will be spared on her interior, which will be completed to the highest modern standards by the skilled craftsmen at Danish Yacht, with a similar exquisite finish as the J Class sailing yacht Ranger and the 115’ motor yacht Moon Goddess.
Jonathan McDonnell, from Danish Yacht said, “We are delighted to be working on this exciting and innovative new project with the 38m dayboat. Tank testing went very well and all our predictions were reinforced by the data we collected.” Espen Oeino, said,” We are very pleased to have the new dayboat in build at Danish Yacht. This leaves nothing to chance in terms of quality of build and finish with the carbon fibre hull and modern, minimalistic interior design. All the equipment specifications are to the highest standards and this 38m will also represent a new and fresh look at interior yacht design.”
