The “Sea Flight” shown here is a custom 40-foot welded aluminum foil-assisted catamaran built for a Florida tour and charter boat operator to accommodate a range of eco tours, dolphin watch cruises, and offshore fishing trips. It is the second Jutson Marine Design of its type to be built by Metal Shark and meets USCG Subchapter T standards.
This vessel features a highly efficient foil-assisted catamaran hull delivering unsurpassed performance, economy, and ride comfort. Specially engineered forward and aft transverse hydrofoils elevate the hull at planing speeds to substantially reduce drag. The result is significantly increased performance and fuel economy with modest power requirements. The vessel is powered by twin 440-horsepower Yanmar 6LY440 diesel engines coupled to Hamilton HJ292 water jets via ZF Marine 280-1 transmissions. Sea Flight cruises at speeds in excess of 30 knots and boasts a top speed of 40+ knots.
The vessel featured here has been specifically configured for excursions and seats up to 33 passengers. Rod holders, beverage holders, tackle storage, live wells, fish boxes, and ample cooler space have all been provided. Well-placed grab rails assure ease of access through both port and starboard boarding gates. To accommodate night trips, white/red LED lighting has been provided throughout the vessel.
