Project: Alaska 60 Pilothouse Yachtfisher

Based on its recently launched flagship Alaska 57 Pilothouse model, this down under boat builder presents the project of the 60 Pilothouse Yachtfisher. This new flagship is all based to the 57 featuring an extended hull in length which offers more aft deck space for those who enjoy fishing or scuba diving and features a fully moulded Yacht Fisher style cockpit with additional storage, kill tanks, and rope lockers. Like the 57, the 60 shares a hull which is computer scaled off the 46 series. Her classic and elegant looks combine with a generous five metres plus of beam gives you unparalleled live able spaces on board. Some key design features of the 60 pilothouse are; walk-around decks, three cabin configuration, full beam master stateroom with king-size bed, dual en-suites, laundry, fibreglass hardtop over cockpit and side decks, and tender storage deck aft of flybridge. Like the 57, the 60 Pilothouse Yachtfisher is standard powered with twin Cummins 670hp, or optional 710hp units. The Alaska 60 Pilothouse Yachtfisher variable dead-rise hull ensures an economical cruising speed of 9 knots, or a faster cruise at 18 knots, with top speeds being in the region of 22 knots.
