Lux­ury craft to make a splash

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

A NEW range wa­ter­craft will Aus­tralian waters.

Gold Coast boat builder Keith Hanson will de­velop an ex­clu­sive range of fly­bridge, sun­bridge and sports mo­tor yachts, from 54 to 66 feet, to com­ple­ment his New Ocean Yachts range.

Hanson has more than 40 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence rac­ing, cruis­ing and sell­ing boats around Aus­tralia.

He plans to re­lease the first of lux­ury soon hit of the new White­haven Mo­tor Yachts range, the 6000 fly­bridge, at the Syd­ney In­ter­na­tional Boat Show at the end of July. The 6000 fly­bridge will be able to sleep six to eight peo­ple and has a fuel ca­pac­ity of 5500 litres.

The hull is de­signed to de­liver a dry, sta­ble ride when cruis­ing be­tween 18 and 22 knots but also give eco­nom­i­cal dis­place­ment per­for­mance for long-range cruis­ing.

Em­pha­sis has been put on the bow and chine de­sign to en­sure smooth, dry en­try when run­ning, with the dead-rise and flat chines of the run­ning sur­face of­fer­ing sta­bil­ity.

Above the wa­ter­line, each model in the White­haven range will have a full-beam mas­ter state­room with a choice of two or three state­room ac­com­mo­da­tion lay­outs.

There is also a full-height en­gine room, ac­cessed be­side a ten­der garage.
