S&S 65


BUILDER'S NOTES


The light and strong composite construction of the S&S 65 Fast Cruiser the NEB Composites Team used vacuum-bagged Core-Cell linear foam core, quadraxial E-glass, and epoxy resin add up to speed and fuel efficiency. During sea trials the yacht hit 35 knots, running smoothly and quietly. The yacht features three cored-fiberglass watertight bulkheads and one watertight door with window into the engine room; the hull, deck, superstructure, and all transverse frames and longitudinal stiffeners are built to exceed ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) requirements. All wiring, piping, and systems details meet or exceed ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council) requirements.

NEB's in-house Engineering and Mechanical and Electrical departments worked closely with the S&S design office and industry suppliers to produce a trustworthy cruising vessel. NEB's Metalwork and Joinerwork departments created many custom features on the S&S 65 Fast Cruiser each one as beautiful as it is functional. We look forward to following the adventures of this fine yacht!

DESIGNER'S NOTES


Sparkman & Stephens Design No. 2713
Simplicity, safety, and seaworthiness are the keywords in the design and construction of this motoryacht. The Owner, a very experienced boat owner, has also placed high emphasis on the well-organized engine room, straightforward systems design for easy service access, and the practical, attractively finished interior with traditional, understated styling. Twin Caterpillar C30, 1,550-horsepower turbo-charged diesels provide propulsion; a Northern Lights M844LK2 genset powers the yacht's extensive liveaboard systems. NEB worked with insulation experts to achieve an exceptionally low level of noise and vibration, even with the main engines at 1,950 rpm and the generator and air-conditioning in operation.
