by Chris Jefferies
The 31.55 metre yacht Project Northland is taking shape at American yard Burger Boat Company, with the latest images revealing that the hull and superstructure have been joined.
Designed for long-range cruising and fishing, Project Northland features both exterior styling and contemporary interiors by Luiz de Basto. Accommodation is for eight guests split between an upper deck master suite, two doubles and a twin cabin.
Project Northland is designed to be a stylish and capable oceangoing expedition yacht. She is intended to travel to the world’s best places to fish and will feature an extended aft deck with a cockpit for sportfishing.
Other key features will include a superyacht spa pool on the upper deck and storage for two tenders on the foredeck. The main deck is dedicated to entertaining, with the main saloon and bar area back aft, a formal dining area with seating for eight people amidships and a library in the bow.
Project Northland is powered by a pair of 475hp Caterpillar C18 ACERT engines for a top speed of 12.4 knots. She will have a maximum range of 4,000 nautical miles when cruising at 9.5 knots.
This tri-deck displacement yacht features a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, which are being built to ABS classification. Delivery is scheduled for summer 2017.
