The latest Offshore 54 has just departed the factory and is scheduled to arrive in Southern California at the end of this month (April 28th).
While on the subject of the 54, requests have yielded a new version of the popular design called the 54 Sport Sedan Cruiser, which promises to offer traditional looks, classic good looking low profile, and aggressive cruising and top speeds. The two ensuite stateroom layout and galley up arrangement in the traditional Offshore Styling can also be created in a more modern "Mediterranean" look, with lighter chosen woodwork.
WE LISTEN TO OUR OWNERS:
The most popular size of Offshore designs has been the 62, with 100 of these successful yachts being built. After listening to many owners about how much they love their boats, naturally the subject came up about how to improve a great boat, and they universally stated: "We want more headroom in the engine room". We are now addressing that very issue... The newest version of the 62 will have the deck, ports, and bulwark raised 8 inches, which will offer 8 inches more headroom in the engine room as well as introduce a much more friendly stairway entrance to the engine room from the aft deck.
The latest 80 ft. Offshore under construction will have the newly restyled windows and frames for a much cleaner and more simplified look... Watch for photos coming soon in the next Offshore News Update.
DID YOU KNOW?
One of the most maintenance intensive areas on a yacht always seem to be the shaft seal, cutlass bearing, and strut assembly area, which is prone to damage, vibration, and leakage!! Great news: All of the new Offshore designs will come standard with the Seatorque enclosed prop shaft system. This system distributes torque and thrust from the shaft to the entire hull structure and eliminates the cutlass bearings and stuffing boxes completely! These systems are offered for engines up to 3000 HP, so don't worry, our power requirements will not begin to challenge this proper piece of successful boating gear.
