The new Enavigo Power 39H has cold-molded wood construction to the highest standards, accommodations for 4-6 people with good privacy, 15 knot cruising speed, and ISO Category B certification.
The Enavigo Power 39H is a modern adaptation of 1930’s era Pacific Northwest cruisers commonly known as “Dreamboats”. These boats all shared a typical arrangement including the raised foredeck with sleeping accommodation, deckhouse with large windows all around over the engine space, and the covered aft cockpit. Dreamboats were rather narrow and round-bottomed, with a maximum speed of 8 knots using the low powered engines of their day. In adapting the Dreamboat to modern use we have increased the beam and with the P 39 added a hard chine-vee bottom hull form for better initial stability and excellent performance at higher speed.
At her half-load displacement of 8300Kg the P39 will cruise at 10 knots using approximately 16 litres of fuel per hour. At this speed she will have a comfortable range of 448 NM with a 20% fuel reserve. At 14 knots the range drops to 340 NM.
Construction of the P39 utilizes multiple planking layers on a combination transverse and longitudinal laminated mahogany frame. The entire structure is laminated with epoxy using modern engineering with traditional craftsmanship and detail. This creates a vessel that appears and feels like a traditional wooden yacht, yet the wood is all sealed and joined to eliminate the possibility of maintenance issues or deterioration.
