GEORGI YANKOV HAS designed 15 tenders for some high profile superyachts, but his latest design is an 8.95 metre family launch. The hull, decks and interior on his GY8.95 are modelled in 3D CAD (computer-aided design). The boat has two options for construction: E-glass/carbon with a foam core and female moulds for saving weight, or, a budget-friendly, cold moulded timber option construction. The saloon houses the navigation station, and helm seat with bow thruster controls, chart plotter and electric windlass controls to starboard. The U-shaped galley is at the rear of the saloon, well placed for serving people sitting in the cockpit or at the booth-style dining table. The table converts to a double berth. Forward of the saloon is a head to port and a large wardrobe or storage area to starboard, with a double vee berth in the bow. The self-draining cockpit has teak sole and transom door. The boat has been designed for easy fishing, with an expansive sole and an uninterrupted interior to avoid fouling fishing rods. There is a swim ladder and deck shower. The engine, fuel and fresh water tanks are under the cockpit and the saloon floor to keep their weight low, to improve stability and reduce roll. The boat complies with European RCD requirements as appropriate and can be classified for CE approval – category B. SHIPMAN YACHTS PRODUCES the sailing equivalent of supermodels in sports shoes – racing boats with shapely, lightweight hulls that exhibit luxury and the ability to crack the 20-knot barrier. The smallest in the fleet, the 59-footer, sails like a stripped-out racer, but is fitted with some serious solar panels that fully charge the batteries in two days. When at anchor, the Lithium batteries can run the refrigeration, lights and entertainment for days at a time or engage an electric motor with a cruising range of up to 20nm. Aside from the standard socialising areas, the cockpit and saloon, the Shipman 59 has a third area on the foredeck set aside for lounging in the sun, with sunbeds, drink holders and bimini shading. The 59-footer is a functional cruiser. It can be sailed with few people so can easily be handled by a couple or even single handed on long journeys.
