Keel laid for 60′ South Pass Longrange Motoryacht

Feb. 19, 2015 – After two years of exhaustive search for an existing yacht to fit his desired requirements, our client turned to BMD to craft a new, fully customized motoryacht with long range capabilities.

The owner’s past history of expeditionary cruising was a driving force with this design. The client and his family, who are experienced sailors and are very familiar with long-range cruising on power boats, were looking to create a yacht design that would meet their needs for future expeditions.

We’re very excited that the vessel design has now moved to the construction phase and we look forward to seeing her in the water soon!

After a year of ‘in water usage‘ and pilot input, Boksa Marine Design was asked to design a second pilot boat with modifications based on operational preferences.

Design and the aluminum structure will be completed in the U.S. then shipped to Colombia for mechanical and electrical outfitting.

“I was fortunate to make the trip to Colombia recently and was able to participate in sea trials in the waters around Coveñas, the home port of the pilot boat.

The customer was happy with the vessel as it met expectations and ultimately influenced the decision to add a second boat to Tecnimar’s growing fleet,” said Nick Boksa of the project. View more images of the pilot boat here.
