Jarrett Bay’s sportfish yacht Jaruco has been spotted on sea trials ahead of her December delivery date.
Jaruco has been built for an experienced owner whose brief called for state-of-the-art materials, design and electronics to create the ultimate sportfish yacht.
She features advanced build techniques, utilising titanium and carbon-fibre composites, giving her a carbon-fibre bridge, cabin, decks and stringer system, as well as a cold-moulded wooden hull. According to Jarrett Bay, this has resulted in substantial weight savings, which leads to easier handling, improved fuel efficiency and an increased range. The yacht builder shared that extensive virtual tank testing, actual in-water tank testing and a detailed weight studies have been completed to optimise her performance levels.
Jarrett Bay revealed last year that its new flagship yacht will accommodate up to 10 guests in five en-suite staterooms, including a full-beam owner’s suite complete with an office — a rarity among sportfish yachts.
Other key features include her cockpit, which has been left open for reeling in the catch of the day, while the flybridge is ideal for spotting potential catches from afar. A hardtop bimini means that guests relaxing in this area will enjoy plenty of shelter from the sun when necessary.
Power comes from a pair of 2,600hp MTU M96L diesel engines, which draw on a total fuel capacity of 17,700 litres, while her maximum draught of 1.73 metres means she should be able to reach a wide range of fishing hotspots.
