17.6 m [57.7′]Ocean Going Trawler Cat
The ‘New Yorker- 51’ had the look and the accommodation that a lot of people were looking for in a cruising boat, but there were also those who wanted to go further and faster than was possible in the 51. The ‘New Yorker- 57’ was designed to meet the needs of those people. The 57 has the same accommodation layout but it has bigger and longer hulls, more powerful engines and a much greater fuel capacity than its shorter sister. There are, of course, numerous detail engineering changes such as bigger diameter rudder stocks, propellers and shafts all designed to meet the higher loads imposed by the greater speed and displacement of the 57. These higher loads have also meant some changes to the basic structure. From the 57, we can expect a 5280 nautical mile cruising range at 8 knots using 2.6 litres of fuel per nautical mile [0.68 us gals per mile], 3190nm at 10 knots and 1980nm at 15 knots. The vessels maximum speed is 23 knots, cruising speed 15 knots. This type of performance would be very difficult to achieve in a monohulled vessel of similar dimensions. This design features our latest hull form, which is currently being evaluated by the Canadian Coast Guard to ascertain if it meets their seakeeping requirements. A “softer” knuckle and more upsweep to the knuckle at the bow are some of the changes which have been made to improve the vessels ocean-going capabilities. The double arch wing deck sweeping up to gunwale level well back from the bow and blending into an “anti-slam” nacelle up forward are now familiar features on all our ocean capable designs.

See news section [14th July 2004] for ‘Escape’ fuel comparison. This demonstrates just how fuel efficient our power Catamaran designs are. With spiralling fuel prices, this becomes of paramount importance.
