New Model: Jet Tern 63 Apollo

After making a good name with the Selene trawler explorer cruisers and yachts range, and following this with the Artemis modern planning boat line in 2010, Jet Tern takes another challenge to the Power Catamaran and presents the 63 Apollo model.  For this new challenge Jet Tern hired important French names for the design of its first catamaran, and the results has been good seeing that hull two is under construction, and a smaller Apollo is at the moment in the tooling department. The 63 Apollo a name which represents the Greek God of the Sun, is a three cabin Power Catamaran, and surprises for having the owner stateroom located on the main deck, and in the center part of the boat.  This apart giving extra comfort is unusual in a boat this even if a catamaran.  The two other guest suites are to be found one in each hull, and both offer circle shaped large view windows.  An extra optional fourth double cabin is available on request.  Living space is impressive and thanks to the 29 feet of beam the 63 Apollo offers a 145 squared meters area.  This being divided  with a galley located behind to starboard of the central helm, and lounge sofas found on the entrance of the main deck.  Power is from twin Cats 1010hp engines which give a top speed of 28 knots, and a cruise of 25, but a long range option of smaller 450hp Cats is also available.
