The ZURN 65, designed by Doug Zurn, blends traditional and practical sailing qualities with advanced modern construction techniques to provide a moderately light and nimble yacht on which to adventure far offshore in comfort.
First and foremost she has a powerful hull, appendages and sail plan to get to where you're headed quickly and safely. Easy sail handling and a flexible sail plan are accommodated with dual head stay arrangement for self-tacking working Jib and reaching Genoa. Asymmetrical spinnakers can be set off the retractable bowsprit. Headsail halyard winches are on the mast while the (2) spinnaker halyards, main halyard and reef lines are lead aft to the cockpit. A double-ended main sheet is just aft of the helmsman. Ventilation is provided to the cabin below through six Dorade vents and six overhead hatches. There is a large Lazarette aft and forepeak locker forward, which may be assessed through a watertight door in the forward shower. All hull ports are fixed. A swim platform is incorporated into the transom.
Interior accommodations are functional and can be finished how ever the client wishes. Starting forward are the guest/children's cabins with opposing hi/low berths and shared head and shower. This arrangement worked very well on the C.W. Hood 50 and included a centerline pocket door that merged the two cabins into one when open. The salon incorporates a port and starboard settee with a centerline table. To port is entertainment and to starboard a delivery pilot berth. Up one step and aft is the "great room".
