Jack Haines writes a brief article on the largest boat shipyard Privateer has ever built, which will be shown at the Dusseldorf Boat Show in just a few weeks.
If you look closely at the Privateer Trawler 65, Jack Haines points out that the boat doesn?t have a cockpit. The owner thought ? quite rightly ? that with such an enormous flybridge why bother with even more outdoor space when you could extend your interior?
The result is what Haines describes as "one of the most unique and comfortable saloons that we will have ever. seen". With the saloon end being squared off and sliding doors on either side, there are two comfortable corners furnished with a pair of arm chairs with brilliant views aft out of the rear windows.
Haines explaines access to the flybridge had to be "thought out" as there is no cockpit to put a staircase in. A ladder that goes from the bathing platform to the flybridge solves the problem at the aft end and an internal staircase in the pilothouse gives another easy route at the other end.
Haines adds that a pair of lazy 240hp John Deere diesels are installed and are good for a 3,000nm range at 8.5 knots.
