JFA launches new 43m Vripack-designed superyacht
by Raphael Montigneaux
JFA announces the launch of their latest superyacht last Saturday, a 43m expedition yacht currently known under the hull number 22C.
Like most of the large motor yachts produce by the Concarneau-based yard, this new one is designed by Vripack. Bureau Veritas classed and MCA compliant, this all-aluminium expedition yacht is a larger version of 37m Axantha (now renamed Zeepaard) built by the yard in 2003. She's a proven, successful design ideally suited for long range cruising.
The voluminous interior of 340sqm accommodates eleven guests and eight crew. The five guests staterooms are all located on the lower deck, including the master suite.
On the technical side, the JFA Hull 22C is powered by twin Cummins QSK-19M engines of 750hp each giving a cruising speed of 12.5 knots and a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 11 knots.
The JFA Hull 22C will be delivered this Summer after three months of extensive sea trials.
