When you're competing on the tournament trail, you want to be the fastest to the fishing grounds. The 27.94 metre Sea Force IX 91.5 Luxury Performance Sport Yacht is designed to get you to the fish first, reaching a top speed of 38 knots powered by twin 2,600hp MTU 16V 2000 M94 engines. Range is important when competing as well, and the yacht can achieve 750 nautical miles cruising at 28 knots and push that up to 3,500 nautical miles by slowing down to a 10-knot cruise speed.
The GRP constructed Sea Force IX yachts live up to their luxury moniker as well. Flamingo Daze, pictured above, has plush accommodations for seven guests, custom leather interiors and a top of the line galley.
