Freedom Marine signs new project from Ron Holland and Rayburn
by Malcolm MacLean
Designer Ron Holland is working in collaboration with Rayburn Yachts on a new 33.5m motor yacht concept.
The project is based upon a proven existing Rayburn hull resulting in significant savings in time and money. Freedom Marine has been chosen to represent it for sale, offering multiple design options and the ability for the purchaser to customise to their taste.
After being provided with the existing hull lines and parameters, Ron Holland agreed to move forward on the project. Holland states, 'I am excited. I think this is an innovative project. The fact that we have a hull ready to go will help to move this along quickly and I believe this will excite the buyer as well.'
At this stage there are two primary design concepts available. The first is substantially oriented towards the adventure platform with a large exterior aft deck capable of carrying a personal submersible. The second is suited to a more standard cruising motor yacht with rugged style. Both designs can be tailored to incorporate a sport fishing cockpit and a flying bridge.
The asking price for the hull is $600,000.
