Tradition never goes out of style. Classic-looking yacht enthusiasts will appreciate this 82 Flush Deck Motoryacht. She’s yours for the commissioning at Front Street Shipyard.
To capture the classic ethos, plus the concepts of self-sufficiency and stability, Front Street Shipyard is collaborating with C. Raymond Hunt Associates. The noted studio has a long history of designing capable cruisers with both production builders and custom yards. The 82 Flush Deck Motoryacht is meant for more than just lunch on the hook. Likewise, she’s meant for good speeds. Front Street Shipyard and the design team anticipate a cruise speed between 18 and 25 knots, depending on final engine selection. Maximum speed should be 25 to 32 knots. The 82 Flush Deck Motoryacht’s fuel capacity of 2,500 gallons (about 9,464 liters) puts her in line with other long-range cruisers. And, shallow waters won’t be off limits. Draft, down to the propeller tips, is 5’6” (1.7 meters).
Due to the flush-deck design, there’s an open, convivial atmosphere among the main-deck spaces. The helm, with either one or two pedestal chairs and an observation seating area, can be open to the galley. The observation area can double as a small dining spot, too. That would permit the saloon seating aboard the 82 Flush Deck Motoryacht to comprise the lion’s share of the deck.
Because the specifications package and renderings are preliminary, a buyer can tailor various aspects to his or her tastes. These include the general arrangement. One configuration has the 82 Flush Deck Motoryacht accommodating eight guests and four crew. A forward VIP, a twin stateroom, a bunk cabin, and a full-beam (21 feet, or 6.1 meters) master take care of you and your guests. In another arrangement, the megayacht has just two guest staterooms paired with the master. Here also, the four crew are housed fully forward. (The eight-guest layout has crewmembers aft of the engine room.)
