Now under construction at Armstrong Marine are two Jutson designed 44 ft pilot boats for Central America. The design is based around our semi displacement catamaran hull powered by 2 x Cummins 355 hp motors for a top speed of 25 kts. The choice of this design is based around the operator’s need to be able to make smooth and safe pilot transfers at a wider range of speeds than their current planing boats allow. The high roll stability of the cat is also a plus. Delivery of hull#1 is to made in December 2011.
Designed for an experienced owner for cruising in the Pacific Northwest this is a robust long range vessel with large battery capacity backed by an array of solar and wind charging. Cabin heating and cooking are done with diesel further reducing the house draw at anchor thus making a generator unnecessary. A simple two stateroom arrangement makes this the ideal live aboard cruiser for a couple or small family.
Veteran luxury yacht builder LeClercq Marine Construction began the build on this 49ft 3 cabin yacht in December ’10. Designed for an experienced owner with plans for cruising in the waters between Seattle and Alaska this ‘go anywhere’ vessel is capable of 1000 mile plus range with low fuel burn. Powered with twin 220hp Yanmars top speed will be 18 kts with all day cruising at 14. Stable with outstanding sea keeping this could become the new standard for trawler yacht cruising.
Launched late November ’10 by specialist catamaran builders Armstrong Marine is this Jutson designed 47 x 17 ft 40 passeneger catamaran to service the Four Season Resort in Nevis, WI. Powered by 2 x 350 hp Cummins diesels with conventional props top speed is 23 kts. Certification is to IMO SCV Code.
We designed this in 1988 for the new international Formula 40 class. Clean, simple and strong. I understand she is now under new ownership but the winning contiues unabated as she again takes the multihull division in the 2010 Swiftsure. For more photos click
Dragonfly is evidence that sailing, at its most exhilirating, is not soley the function of new, more expensive technology. Not that we didn’t scavenge a bit of the old to make the new : the cross beams are left over 12 meter mast extrusions.
Now imagine this at 50 foot? Could it be more fun?
Using the same proven platform this simple 48 ft design can take on many permutations. Powered by twin MAN R6-800s top speed is in the low 60s. The design is buildable in composite or alumimium with equal ease as all surfaces are developable. A superlative day boat that is equally suited to deep water fishing or high speed blue water patrol use. Styling by David Bentley.
Built on the island of Trinidad over a period of several years this Jutson 75 design is now on the move. Powered by twin MAN 800s the vessel has a top speed of 24 knots and a cruising range of up to 2000 nm. Like all our cats optinal cruising occurs in the 14-17 knot range so long distances are gobbled up while fast moving weather systems are left behind. All this with less fuel consumption than our trawler yacht friends are using at their sub 10 knot cruise speed. Call or email for more information.
