Sportfishing yachts combine performance and practicality to deliver the ultimate game fishing experience. And just like other yachts, they also come with luxurious interiors, high speed, the ability to cruise in open water, and reliability. The only noticeable difference between them and superyachts is the size.
We take a closer look at the top three sportfishing yachts available in the market today.
Labelled as “tournament ready,” the GT70 is the biggest sportfish yacht in the Hatteras stable. The most striking thing about it is its high-quality gloss interior.
It comes with a pair of 2600hp MTU engines capable of reaching a top speed of 41.0 knots at 2450rpm. However, this bad boy can only travel a maximum range of 422.5nm at top speed, as his fuel capacity is only 8101 litres.
Built with light and ultra-strong titanium and carbon fibre, the Juraco is designed to take people to remote fisheries in style and comfort. She was first launched on December 2017 and became the first-ever sportfish yacht to become a finalist in the Boat International Design and Innovation Awards.
The 27.34 metre sportfish yacht comes with impressive fuel efficiency and performance, thanks to the extensive research and testing done by Jarrett Bay Boatworks. Her fuel capacity is 15142 litres. The yacht features five en-suite guestrooms plus an owner’s suite which comes with an office; something that is quite rare in the sportfishing space.
Sea Force IX 94.5
Powered by twin 2600hp MTU engines, Sea Force can reach a top speed of 39 knots and cruise at 30 knots. Each vessel gets a custom interior design with enough space to accommodate a family of six.
The most common layout comprises of a master suite, VIP stateroom, a double cabin, and a twin. There is also additional space for three crew members.
