New Model: Alaska 60 Yachtfisher

This new Alaska 60 Yachtfisher bases itself on the previous larger model coming from the down under builder the 57 Pilothouse, with the extra thinking coming for those who enjoy fishing or scuba diving, incorporating a fully molded fisherman style cockpit with additional storage, kill tanks, rope lockers and more. Like her 54ft smaller sister the hull of the 60 was computer scaled off the successful Alaska 46 series using the latest CAD design software. The Alaska 60 Yachtfisher offers classic and elegant looks combined with a generous sixteen foot plus of beam giving an unparalleled motor yacht with a myriad of live-able spaces on board. Some key design features of the 60 Yachtfisher are; walk-around decks, three cabin configuration with full beam master stateroom with king-size bed, dual en-suites, laundry, fiberglass hardtop over cockpit and side decks, and a tender storage deck aft on the flybridge. Like all Alaska the 60 Yachtfisher features a variable dead-rise hull design ensuring an economical cruising speed of 9 knots, or comfortably at 18 but if it’s a burst of speed you need she will sprint to over 22 knots.
