New Model: Shearline 61 Sportfish

Shearline Boatworks is another of the custom builders coming from the US, most notably the North Carolina region, and here we present its recent model the 61 Sportfish, launched in 2008. This 61 feet flagship is an important step for Shearline, increasing its size from a previous 43 feet biggest offer, but also for being its second flybridge model. As many custom builders Shearlines are also build with the superior cold molding technique, that is structures in high quality wood, and then all covered in glass and lastly epoxied with West Systems. This gives a lighter built but most important also a stronger one to a normal fiberglass construction. The 61 Sportfish is unbelievable fast achieving a 45 knots top speed, and comfortable 36 knots cruise with twin C32 Caterpillar at 1650hp each.
