New Model: Jersey Cape 47 HTEX

Jersey Cape presens its new 47 Hard Top Express, the latest model in a line which features eight semi custom models from 31 to a 66 feet in project stages.  The Jersey attitude and Carolina flair is present again in this new 47, which is a marriage of modern style and untamed customization.  Like the much appreciated Devil 45, the 47 HTEX hull has prop pockets with very Carolina influenced bottom having a deep Vee entry and shallow degree stern. The 47 cockpit is full of sportfisherman amenities measuring 33 squared meters with a single transom length in-deck fishbox molds the hull shape that opens from either side. The oversized transom live well can also be set to receive crushed ice. The tackle center houses a freezer, refrigerated bait tray, drink box and compartmentalized drawers along with a cockpit sink and second storage locker all in a step up observation deck . The cockpit liner conceals gaffs, mops and deck brushes with a separate opening for shore power and water outlets. The enclosed bridge deck features the captains command center with a teak helm pod, single lever controls, a full array of electronics and instrumentation, and two accompanying companion chairs. Bridge deck seating for the whole crew with easy access stowage and teak decking are comfortable in a climate controlled environment. Engine room access is through the helm bridge deck.  Entering the cabin on the starboard side is a full head with solid surface vanity, head and enclosed separate shower with toiletries locker. Opposite to port is a U-shaped galley with double under counter refrigerators and freezers, built in microwave, complimenting countertops, dry storage and easy access to the ships lighted main electrical panel. Forward of the galley on the port side is a settee with rod storage in an drop down back rest. On the starboard side is a pocket door to the over/under bunk room complete with reading lamps and storage. The private forward stateroom has been fitted with crossover V-bunks with storage, double hanging lockers, lighting, night stand style storage drawers, an oversized deck hatch and blackout shade.
