The New Yorker 57 has hit the water.   This design first appeared as the Erebus design many years ago a created a ripple of interest around the world, it what was then and entirely new concept, the trawler style powercat.   With the ability of tranocean range, and the ability to travel in excess of 20 knots for shorter distances the powercat offers abilities the mono hulls are unable to compete with.   The Erebus grew slightly in length and comfort and was realized in the New Yorker 57.   The beam possible for a boat designed to voyage, and therefore not limited by marina berths is truly illustrated in this design.   The owners of the vessel personally managed her construction over a number of years and to see her in the water is a credit to them and her builders.
