New Launch: Jarrett Bay 64 Sportfisherman Hull #65

Jarrett Bay Boatworks has delivered the latest evolution of their popular 64’ hull to owners with deep ties to the company since its inception nearly 37 years ago. The fifth custom boat to be commissioned by a family spanning three generations, Hull 65 has taken to the water with sleek styling and peak performance worthy of her force-to-be-reckoned, titled as m/y Rebelette as a nod to the owners’ allegiance to Ole Miss. Jarrett Bay has built many sportfish convertibles in the sixty-foot range over its history, but a series of recent 64 commissions have established this size as a signature length for it's custom fleet. Similar to every hull built before her, Rebelette was designed and built to the owner’s exact specifications and requests. Although the Alexseal Cloud White hull and top sides, along with the centreline helm station built into a peninsula console on the flying bridge, may resemble other recent Jarrett Bay builds, other likenesses are few in this latest launch. Hull 65 is the first new Jarrett Bay to be splashed with Caterpillar Marine’s latest propulsion technology, which has undergone hundreds of hours of strenuous testing on the Beaufort's custom builder 70 Sportfisherman hull 48, serving as the research and demo platform for Cat. With twin turbos on each engine, hull 65’s Cat engines are rated at 2,025hp and are complimented by the Three60 Precision Control joystick system. Jarrett Bay 64 Sportfisherman Hull#65 sea trials did not disappoint with smooth rides found at both an efficient cruise of 37 knots, with wide open speeds pushing 44 knots. Additionally, these CAT powerplants were extremely responsive in manoeuvring her loaded weight of over 35 tons as nimbly as vessels a fraction of her weight.
