cruising motor yacht / flybridge / hydro-jet / composite
54' C. RAYMOND
53'09" (16.4 m)
This C. Raymond Hunt Design features Twin Caterpillar C18s (1001 BHP) coupled with Hamilton HJ403 water-jets give a top speed of 35 knots and a cruising speed of 30 knots. Construction is infused FRP composite with CoreCell PVC foam core. Water-jet propulsion means that this vessel will have an operating draft of approximately three feet, or roughly one and one-half feet less than a propeller-driven yacht of comparable size and type. Accommodations include an owner's cabin with en-suite head and an office which converts to a guest cabin, also with its own head. The spacious, near-flush aft deck conceals a tender garage which accommodates an 11-foot RIB. The flybridge itself features a centerline helm and two companion seats, a settee with table, and a small bar. Other arrangements are, of course, possible.
