48ft Centre Console Game Fisher

This project started out as a foil asist boat but evolved into a stepped hull when the speed requirements headed north of 50 knots. The client is intimate with his use pattern and this knowledge had led to a more substantial loaded weight. At departure load of 10.5 tons the top speed needs to be 55 knots so a free running speed in the mid-60s is there to be had. Power is 800 hp per side with surface drives. These are not the obvious choice for fishing but the drives will be protected by the boarding platform and the general style of fishing will take the prop location into account. This is an awesome project that will benefit from the extraordinary ride quality of the hull form as well as the resultant fuel savings. For the rough water fisherman this is the way of the future.
