True North Yachts set to debut 50-foot flagship

True North Yachts, a division of US Watercraft LLC, said manufacturing is under way on a new flagship, the True North 50, for the 2014 model year.


In coordination with Langan Design Partners, True North designed the TN50 to transform its line, which currently consists of 34- and 38-foot models, by making the appearance more contemporary and focusing on the enjoyment of being outdoors, ease of ownership, safety and comfort at sea, the builder said.

"We are very excited about the addition of the True North 50. Our new flagship will complement our existing line of classic True North Yachts beautifully,” US Watercraft vice president of sales and marketing Gregg Weatherby said in a statement. “This model will provide our True North owners with an exciting next step in their waterborne adventures as well as open up opportunity for others looking to own a stunning and reliable yacht in the 50-foot range."

True North 50 Hull No. 1 is under construction and will be available for 2014.
