Massachusetts-based Zurn Yacht Design announced the construction of a Zurn-designed 38-foot twin-waterjet boat.

Production is under way at New England Boatworks, a builder with a history of collaboration with Doug Zurn and his staff. The 38-foot pleasure yacht is an adaptation of New England design, with a low-profile open pilothouse, cockpit and stable hull form.

The Zurn/NEB 38 is designed for fishing and diving, and to quickly get boaters where they are going. The ultra jet drives are powered by twin Volvo Penta D-6 diesel engines, with a combined 870 hp for a 40-knot top speed. It has a choice of wheel or joystick steering.

The hull and deck are built with an epoxy resin-infused, cored composite construction. The boat has a hard-chined, moderate-V planing hull. It also comes equipped with Seakeeper’s new 3DC battery-powered gyrostabilizer.

On-board power is supplied by a DC house battery bank. An inverter provides 120 VAC power, with AC and DC power outlets throughout the pilothouse and cabin. Audio entertainment can be shared among the cabin, pilothouse, and cockpit areas.

Main engine exhausts are provided by Marine Exhaust Systems, whose water injection system and in-line exhaust silencer strive for quiet exhausts. The propulsion engines and other vibration-prone equipment are supported on soft elastic mountings for reduced structure-borne noise.

Machinery space insulation uses a combination of acoustic foam, mass-barrier layers and vibration damping treatments in a carefully designed acoustic package to significantly reduce sound transmission into passenger area.
