Finish Line is a custom designed must-see 120′ raised pilothouse superyacht, with aluminum hull as well as superstructure. Set to be displayed at the upcoming Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show, she represents the proud realization of her American owner, one who is hopeful that the design and performance of this spectacular vessel will serve as an inspiration to other American yachtsmen to build in the United States.
Special features include:
– Sleek, shallow and swift
– Specifically-designed draft for accessing shallow harbors
– Full beam ensuite king master suite
– Three guest staterooms located below main deck with full private baths
– Sun deck with full helm station
– Easy access to swim platform by two sets of stairs
– Air conditioned exterior aft deck
– 24 tons of air conditioning with fresh air makeup
With unusual speed for her size, Finish Line yacht's sleek naval architecture and styling enable her to run in excess of 23 knots with a range over 3,600 nautical miles. With her normal cruising grounds being the East Coast of the United States as well as the Bahamas, the yacht's draft has been specifically designed to be 5'6" (1.7m) in half-load condition. The shallow draft also enables her owner-a race car enthusiast- to access specific ports like Daytona Beach, Florida.
Arrangements below decks are divided into five watertight compartments.
Accommodations are available for owner's party of eight in four staterooms and for crew of five in three staterooms. Owners and guest accommodations consist of a full-beam owner's cabin and three guest staterooms. The owner's cabin features a king size berth with His and Hers ensuite bathrooms and a large walk-in closet. All guest cabins have private full baths with two cabins having queen size berths - one of which converts from a queen bed to a play/massage room and another is a split queen - with the other cabin having two twin berths. Forward of the watertight bulkhead separating guest and crew areas will be three crew cabins and three full baths for a crew of five.
Main deck arrangements consist of an air conditioned exterior aft deck with full wet bar, dining table and seating for eight. The main salon-which is accessed through sliding glass doors-also features a full wet bar, entertainment center, L-shaped custom sofas and lounge chairs. The open formal dining is forward of the main salon and gives the owners and their guests full benefit of the views from the large salon windows and aft glass doors.
There is a powder room on the port side and formal entrance for the owner and guests to starboard. The galley occupies the forward area of the main deck and is designed for entertaining and informal dining for up to eight. This arrangement allows for large windows port and starboard, an island for prepping and serving as well as bar stools for "foodies" who enjoy watching the chef prepare meals as much as the actual dining experience.
The sun deck layout features a full helm station on the starboard side. Forward access is on centerline from the pilothouse. The flybridge deck is equipped with a full wet bar and settees with easy chairs and tables for alfresco dining. Aft on the sun deck is a davit to handle the tender and two jet skis. A set of stairs leads down to the exterior aft deck which also features easy access by two sets of stairs to the swim platform.
Power and ships systems are state-of-the-art. The lazarette and engine room are accessed through a watertight door in the transom as well as from the main deck port-side when at sea. The engine room houses two MTU 16v2000 main engines rated at 2,600 hp each, driving 6-bladed propellers via 6" propeller shafts and ZF 3370 gearboxes. A 100 hp Arcturus TRAC bow thruster assists the captain when handling the yacht in tight quarters and electrical power is supplied by two Kohler 80 kW generator sets.
To ensure the owner and guests remain comfortable while aboard, there will be 24 tons of air conditioning with fresh air makeup, two water makers of 1,400 gallon per day capacity each and active fin stabilization with ‘at rest' capability to enhance the stability of the yacht when at sea.
