January / February 2018


    Spanning 90 feet and representing the next evolution in offshore battlewagon performance and comfort, Jarrett Bay Boatworks’s custom sportfish hull number 62, Jaruco, is a revolutionary cold-molded hull with carbon fiber stringer and bulkhead designs with power supplied by twin 2600 MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines. Built to withstand 8-foot seas at 50 knots, Jaruco has been designed to tackle the most remote fisheries of the world in ultimate style. To engineer the ideal speed to weight ratio without sacrificing safety, Jaruco features cabin, foredeck, salon floor, mezzanine, top deck, bridge, wake-adapted rudders, and many other parts constructed of a proprietary carbon fiber lamination matrix over a Diab core developed specifically by Jaruco’s engineering team. Additionally, her Palm Beach Towers hardtop, standing platform and buggy top are all comprised of carbon fiber. Titanium 30-foot propeller shafts save more than a thousand pounds over conventional stainless-steel shafts. Additional ultra-lightweight techniques found on Gulfstream jets are also found on Jaruco’s stone countertops and backsplashes.
    Numerous cutting-edge systems are found on Jaruco including an elaborate port, starboard and mid-interceptor stabilization and trim control system and roll-eliminating ability thanks to the Seakeeper 35, housed in a custom-built carbon fiber torque cage. A Side Power SH550 hydraulic bow thruster features counter-rotating propellers that provide optimal thrust. Even the marine coatings of the Jaruco were selected for their weight-saving and speed-enhancing properties including below the waterline where Pettit’s new Black Widow bottom paint has been applied. Topside, Alexseal Yacht Coatings’s complete system was applied, which saves substantial application time as well as weight. Following suit with the “Most Advanced Sportfish Ever Built” theme, Jaruco’s navigation and communication systems were designed and installed by Atlantic Marine Electronics and include a Furuno 60kW S-Band Radar with 12-foot array and a KVH Fleet redundant SatCom system with Iridium Pilot.
