Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Launch of the new ZURN Designed, 38 foot twin water-jet boat took place at New England Boatworks, a top tier builder with a history of successful collaborations with Zurn Yacht Design.

This 38-foot pleasure yacht is designer Doug Zurn’s latest adaptation of the iconic New England design, with sleek lines, low-profile open pilot house, spacious cockpit, and inherently stable hull form.

The Zurn/NEB 38 was conceived for fishing and diving, and to get you there quickly.

The Ultra Jet drives are powered by twin Volvo Penta D-6 Diesel engines (a combined 870 hp for a 40 knot top speed) with a choice of wheel or joystick steering. She will comfortably cruise at 36 knots.

The hull and deck are built with an epoxy resin infused, cored composite construction, for a light-weight and strong structure.

Careful design of the hard-chined, moderate-V planning hull optimises hull shape efficiency and ride stability.

Assisting the smooth ride is Seakeepers new 3DC battery powered gyrostabilizer, which delivers unprecedented stability while at anchor diving or trolling for trophy fish.

For maximum vantage point in tight maneuvering, a removable, remote steering station can be mounted on the Pilot House hard-top. The mast-like station provides a sturdy, buckle-in, ergonomically designed leaning post with yolk-arms that accommodate the water jet joystick and throttle controls.
