From Luxury Cruising to Sportfishing: Exploring the World of Yachts and Boats

By germana

The Jarret Bay 90 JARUCO is one of the most technologically advanced sportfish yachts ever built, and it offers the highest level of speed, performance, engineering, and safety. Computer modeling was used to calculate stress loads, stringers, bulkheads (which were mostly made of carbon fiber, a first) and running gear for the cold-molded-built sportfish yacht. This allowed them to measure how the lightweight materials would affect everything from speed to drag to fuel efficiency. She is built to the ABS classification and can move at 50 knots in 8-foot seas. She has a shallow draft of just 5 feet 8 inches for a motor yacht that is 90 feet long. Her wide beam is 22 feet 6 inches.

Lamination Matrix for the First Time The builder used tried-and-true methods of using marine-grade lumber as the core and combining e-glass and epoxy with carbon fiber and Kevlar layers to create the cold-molded yacht hull. This led to a first-of-its-kind lamination matrix, which greatly enhanced the yacht’s structural integrity. Additionally, the incorporation of carbon fiber into nearly every structural component upward and inward contributed to the elimination of approximately 40,000 points from a conventional build of the same size.

JARUCO is outfitted to the nines, including carbon fiber tower structures, aerospace-grade flooring, and titanium propeller shafts. Simply put, the 90 is one of the recreational fishing boats with the most features known to man.  It was built to fit around a laundry list of high-end equipment. Extraordinary woodwork and craftsmanship masterfully pair intriguing timbers, covers and calf skins. The most discerning guests will be impressed by the self-adjusting tint of the glass, drain-free shower floors, and engineered veneers. A grand symphony of accomplishment is created when all of this technology and opulence come together.

MARY P was built by Trinity Yachts out of aluminum and designed by Doug Sharp.  It is one of the few sportfish yachts that have been ABS-classified. MARY P is both rugged and luxurious, and she is prepared for sportfishing action. She has all of the cutting-edge amenities one would expect to find on a yacht this size and length.

The motor yacht was designed to meet the needs of the most ardent anglers. She has a truly advanced cockpit with a fighting chair that swivels via remote control and is operated by hydraulics, allowing the angler to easily move across her beam. A hidden grill, ice maker, and bait-prep station in the front make the ideal gathering space before and after fishing.

Luxury Entertainment Judy Bell Davis designed her spacious, bespoke interior, which accommodates up to eight guests in four opulent staterooms and four crew members. There is a master, VIP, and two guest suites in the spacious staterooms. Each has its own entertainment system and bathroom.

The 92-foot Viking SPECULATOR, which underwent a recent interior renovation by Patrick Knowles in 2020, is the ideal combination of fit and finish: rugged yet elegant, and sophisticated yet useful. She has everything an active fisherman needs, including a stunning interior where they can retreat after a hard fight.

The deck has seating that faces the rear and a second seating area with a table for al fresco dining that can hold up to six people. A convenient outdoor galley and grilling station for the catch of the day are also in this area.

Great for Family and Entertainment The salon and galley are one big open space inside. There are two custom sofas that make a great place to talk and a full entertainment system. There is a dining table that can accommodate up to six people, and the galley has a set of stools for more friends and family.

The Hatteras GT59 sport yacht is ideal for the tournament circuit because it was designed with the tournament circuit in mind. It has a top speed of 40 knots, incredible seakeeping ability, and a comfortable ride. The sportfish yacht has ample storage space from stem to stern and integrated rigging. She has a beam of 18 feet 9 inches (5.71 meters), a shallow draft of 4 feet 9 inches (1.45 meters), and an overall length of 59 feet 9 inches (18.21 meters).

She has three comfortable forward staterooms with a 2-head configuration or the option of a tackle center or third head, providing all one needs while away from home. Her spacious master stateroom is amidships and has everything a person needs to feel at home away from home.

The GT59 motor yacht has a 1,750-gallon fuel capacity and was designed for serious billfish tournament anglers. She has one of the most comfortable rides in her class and is both strong and light due to her combination of a fiberglass hull and a core of resin-infused foam. She is fuel-efficient and offers a ride that is nearly vibration-free and quiet.

This Viking motor yacht is pure luxury inside. However, stepping outside reveals that she was built for fun and intense fishing. The large cockpit has everything an avid angler needs, including a large transom livewell, rod holders, an Eskimo icemaker, the ability to fish in all directions, and more. Her interior is warm and inviting, making it ideal for families seeking water-based adventure. She has soft furnishings that are ideal for conversation and smooth, gloss walnut cabinetry.
