The Tank – a custom built 8 tonne, 13.9 metre monohull motor yacht needs a Quick Gyro
The custom-designed 13.9-metre monohull motor yacht, named “TANK, was commissioned by a former client and, while a step out of Roger’s comfort zone, the new build will still have a number of “Hill hallmarks”, including the lightweight, durability of the DuFLEX panel system.
The 8 tonne boat is being constructed by Jillian Griffiths and the team at Noosa Marine, from DuFLEX/Foam Composite Panels of varying densities, and it has a 1,900 Litre fuel capacity, which will provide approximately 700 nautical miles of range at a cruising speed of 25 knots. But will also be capable of 50 knot runs to Stradbroke Island for a family picnic.
“The lightweight construction optimises the vessel’s performance and installation of a Quick MC2 anti-roll gyro will provide added stability,” says Roger.
