New Model: Affinity 90 Sportfisherman

Affinity Yachts 90 Sportfisherman is the first of a new range of semi custom Super Sportfish yachts. For its first build this US company sub contracted the renowned Cheoy Lee builder for the construction, and architect Apollonio for the designs. Affinity and builder Cheoy Lee took also great measures to create a light and strong construction for the 90 Sportfisherman with Gurit USA helping out in the structural engineering. Gurit and Cheoy Lee went for a construction with the infusion method using vinylester resins, Corecell foam core hull deck, sold glass keel, and reinforced chines. Accommodation for the 90 Sportfisherman offers four staterooms all with personal showers heads, and a full beam owners suite. The 90 Sportfisherman also features two additional days heads one on the main deck saloon, and a second for the raised pilot house. You also get a choice for the forward VIP cabin with the standard three berths two beds version replaced by a single central queen island double. Crew accommodation is for four persons in two cabins, sharing a single shower head. Power is from twin 2400hp MTU with traditional shaft line in propeller pockets delivering a top speed of 33 knots.
