American sportfish builder Jarrett Bay Boatworks delivered its second-largest project to date this month as the 25.6-metre (84-foot) motor yacht Reel Development was handed over to her owner in North Carolina this month. The open bridge convertible now joins the 27.4-metre Jaruco from 2017 in the yard’s fleet of yachts over 24 metres. Reel Development yacht by Jarrett Bay BoatworksPhoto: Jarrett Bay BoatworksReel Development yacht by Jarrett Bay BoatworksPhoto: Jarrett Bay Boatworks

Built with a cold-moulded hull and composite deck components, Reel Development means business out on the water as this custom-built sportfisher comes with innovative cold and gear storage spaces and a functional layout inside and out.

The saloon on main deck is spacious and takes up nearly the full width of the beam. Here, a dinette, family-style galley and L-shaped lounge form one connected social area for the whole family to hang out in. The interior is finished in satin-finished veneers of cherry wood and oak flooring.Reel Development yacht by Jarrett Bay BoatworksPhoto: Jarrett Bay Boatworks

Below deck, the yacht offers accommodation for up to nine guests in the four staterooms on board, each with its own en suite bathroom. Further comfort is provided by the twin Seakeeper SK16 gyro stabilisers that keep the yacht steady when the swell rolls In. Reel Development yacht by Jarrett Bay BoatworksPhoto: Jarrett Bay BoatworksReel Development yacht by Jarrett Bay BoatworksPhoto: Jarrett Bay Boatworks

At bridge level, the convertible space can be enclosed when underway or fully opened when at anchor while guests relax in the moulded forward-facing loungers or comfortable deck seating that line the sides.Reel Development yacht by Jarrett Bay BoatworksPhoto: Jarrett Bay BoatworksReel Development yacht by Jarrett Bay BoatworksPhoto: Jarrett Bay Boatworks

With speed being a vital ingredient in the billfishing world, Reel Development doesn’t disappoint with her 40-knot top speed and 35.5-knot cruising speed thanks to the two 2,600 hp MTU engines. Adequate freshwater and fuel storage means she can stay out at sea for several days if needed. Reel Development yacht by Jarrett Bay BoatworksPhoto: Jarrett Bay Boatworks
