ZURN YACHT DESIGN
A fast commuter for Lynx Yachts
Sleek elegant and fast, the Lynx Commuter designed by Doug Zurn has the lines of the 1930s craft once used by the rich and famous of Long Island to zip from their Jay Gatsby-style mansions on the Gold Coast to Wall Street and back. The only difference is that the 1930s fast commuters were built from wood while the Zurn-penned Lynx is aluminium and designed as a tender. The result, however, is so gorgeous that Lynx is now thinking of marketing it as a day cruiser as well. The Linx Commuter will pack two imposing 1,900 hp Caterpillar engines that will give a very nifty 45knot red-line speed. In all, the boat can take 18 people aboard and has an en suite cabin in her bow section which was designed specifically to provide as much interior space as possible.
