At this year’s Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show, Luke Brown Yachts will feature two classically designed new Alaskan motor yachts in the display, with one of them, the 65’ flush deck, serving as Yachting Magazine’s Host Boat.
The name Alaskan Yachts is one of the longest running names in the offshore classic cruising category, and a look that has been copied by numerous other builders in recent years. Back in the 60’s, the Alaskan roots were established with the famous Defever 49 which still, to this day, enjoys a cult status among serious cruising families.
The 2012 70 Ft. raised pilot house features C-18 Acert Caterpillar engines allowing a slow cruise range of 2000 miles, yet the ability to have a top speed of 20 knots. The versatile floor plan has three large staterooms forward with large crew cabin aft for two and the largest “sea garage” for water toys in the industry.
The 2010 65 ft. flush deck is unique in that it has four cabins making it the perfect “Owner Operator” classic long range design, also with 20 knot capability if needed. The extended upper deck with center mounted davit not only allows for both port & starboard launching of small boats, but has the capability of storing two large dinghy/or sailboat combinations for local cruising fun.
Stop by our display and learn how efficient these “smart” new Caterpillar powered designs really are…you will not believe how little fuel they burn at slower cruising speeds!!
