The Vision 74 that we designed was part of the Drettmann display . We are pleased to announce that the yacht was sold during the show to a British customer. Drettmann wins hands down for the best boat show display I have ever seen. The eight yachts on display ranged from 52 feet to 90 feet, and featured a walk around hardwood floor at waterline height that surrounded the vessels. Lounging spaces, pianists and private limousine service right to the booth. Every aspect of the Drettmann organization oozed efficiency and professionalism. BARCLAY 40 MOTORYACHT LAUNCHES Bracewell Yachts in Vancouver British Columbia have just launched this beautiful 40 foot motoryacht for a local owner. The basic concept for the vessel was a very simple to main- tain and operate cruiser for an experienced couple on their own. The owners have a large extended family that will oc- cupy the guest cabin and several fold down dinettes.Unusual for a boat of this size she is powered by twin Mercruiser 450 hp stern drives. During the process the owner provided some cost to operate data that was ver y compelling and in favour of gas over diesel for boats of this size. With a stun- n go cao m tl svr l .Quc Svr a sehs i tp ot f eai ie b e“ i ie” s h a n l l c u k l been christened was launched into the icy Fraser River on February 3 2009, just slightly under her designed weight and sea trials are just commencing at the time of this writing.
  8. 8. Page 8 NEW PROJECTS P8 25 Meter FRACTIONAL OWNERSHIP YACHT In these Stormy Financial times, we have noticed an increase in the demand for Fractional owner- ship projects. This particular 25 meter project was designed for a very experienced group in the U.S. The vessel is full of all sorts of interesting features including an aft dining room that is fully convertible from indoors to outdoors. The aft deck area has hinge down bulwarks that add to the deck space and make the view from the din- ing room completely un-obstructed. Accomoda- tions for the boat include four guest staterooms and throughout the vessel all areas are designed to properly accommodate and entertain all eight guests in luxury. Features include a skylounge, a 15 foot tender on a large platform lift. Through- out there are indoor outdoor spaces. 58 Foot PRODUCTION FAST MOTORYACHT This 58 foot FRP cruiser is one of our latest pro- jects for the Persian Gulf. It is specifically de- signed as the ideal size to suit the many marinas that are emerging in the Gulf Region and is large enough to safely make the circuit between Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait. The layout on the vessel is specific to Persian Gulf culture and includes the galley and crew quarters aft to keep the Galley heat from the main acco- modations. Powered by twin 850 Volvo IPS drives, the yacht will top out at 30 knots and have a comfortable cruise of 25 knots. Owners accommodations include three stateroom and two heads. A fabulous main salon with Majlis style seating and 360 degree visibility. PARK ISLE 50 Foot MOTORYACHT We have designed many full displacement pro- jects over the years that have been built at Park Isle Marine here in Victoria B.C. This is the first Semi-Displacement vessel and is in response to increasing demand by Park Isle customers that like the salty feel and superb craftsmanship that Park Isle is known for but want to get up and over 15 knots occasionally. Accommodations include three staterooms and two heads below. A large salon, Galley and Pilothouse on the main deck. Above there is a split level flybridge with ro fr pt a 5tne o tebadc o m o u o 1’edr n h ot ek and still plenty of lounging room.
  9. 9. Page 9 NEW PROJECTS P9 12.2 Meter CLASSIC SAILINGYACHT SERI ES—KANTER YACHTS This Classic Day Sailer is the birth of a long time customer of Kanter Yachts who has inspired the Yacht Builder to begin a Classic Series of sailboats beginning with the 40DS. With ever increasing time demands, the customer is looking for a yacht that he can day sail by himself or with limited crew. The boat is a graceful combination of classic style above the waterline and modern ap- pendages under. The sail plan is all about being sailed single handed and therefore all the sail handling has been engineered for sim- plicity, reliability and ease of use. All control lines are hidden to give the teak deck of the 40DS a clean, safe and uncluttered look. Though the rig and sail plan are simple, it does not lack the power to provide exhilarating performance, she will not only be turning heads at the dock but also around the bay. 12 Meter VERY FAST CENTER CONSOLE SPORTFISHERMAN We have designed this aggressive looking center console sportfishing boat for a good friend of ours who runs a dive shop in the Persian Gulf. Powered by twin 350 horsepower Yamaha outboards, this rocketship will be able to get out to the diving / fishing grounds in short order with a top speed of over 60 knots. Construction will be one off vacuum infused composites. Beam on the boat is a relatively nro 3mees adtehls de “” arw tr ,n h u ia ep V l stepped form. Some of the features of the craft are side diving doors, a day head and a proper fighting chair in the cockpit for gamefishing. The control console portion of the craft is configured to prop- erly get up to six people out of the sun and blister- ing heat of the Gulf. True to the Owners respect for his country the hull is a deep Qatari red with Gold accents.
  10. 10. Page 10 NEW BUILD P10 RK YACHTS NEW PLANT BREAKS GROUND IN CHINA When RK yachts stated that they wanted to build a new yacht concept from the ground up they appear to have meant it. This is an excit- ing new project that is to be built in Mainland China predominantly for Chinese buyers. There has been a significant increase in the demand from Chinese clients for a 15 meter Euro style motor yacht to fill the increasing number of yacht clubs in the south coast of the country as well as Hong Kong , Japan and Thailand. RK is a partnership between two very ener- getic and appealing partners, one based in the U.S. and one in Beijing. The new facility is in North East China and is purpose built to build the 47. Production is set to be 12 vessels per year for the first year, 18 in the second and at full capacity of 25 per year in the third year. The facility is state of the art with a very pro- gressive layout and even an in the water test- ing facility. Layout for the vessel is very unique and in- cludes three very good staterooms, two of which have ensuites. The gourmet galley is just two steps down from the main saloon so that the chef can have easy conversation with guests while cooking. Pilothouse can seat six comfortably and eight in a squeeze, and has virtually 360 degree visibility. From the pilot- house there is direct access to the immense flybridge with a large U-shaped dining area, wet bar with barbeque and proper helm sta- tion . Power plant for the RK is twin 600 BHP Cummins diesels with mercury Zeus drives for a top speed of 35 knots
