The desirable attributes of the Hunt deep-V hull is good rough water performance and a dry ride. With this design pedigree in mind, the new Brooklin Boat Yard 65’ Sportfish has been designed with serious offshore capabilities in mind: strong and robust, comfortable and dry. The arrangement is classic sportfish, with accommodations for six in the owner’s party plus a crew of two. Aft is a large fighting cockpit overlooked by a mezzanine deck.
The design incorporates the yard’s advanced wood composite construction techniques with recent advances in propulsion technology and controls. Brooklin Boat Yard is a true leader in the industry where the structural benefits of wood and high-tech composite materials are showcased in every yacht we build. Every component of our yachts is vacuum bagged; composite fabrics are resin-infused for optimum strength-to-weight characteristics to make a truly superior product.
