Weaver GK80 yacht launched and named Happi Daze

Weaver GK80 yacht launched and named Happi Daze

The 24.58 metre Weaver Boat Works Project GK80 has been launched and named Happi Daze, the American yard has revealed.

Built from cold-moulded timber with a beam of 6.52 metres and a maximum draught of 1.58 metres, Happi Daze hit the water in Tracy’s Landing, Maryland earlier this month.

Construction began in February 2016 and the hull and superstructure were joined 12 months later. In-build pictures released by the yard last month show that Happi Daze features an open-plan saloon with a country kitchen-style galley, marble breakfast bar and rich wood panelling. This theme is carried through to the lower deck accommodation and the full-beam master suite, which is situated amidships.

What’s more, her upper deck helm position and spacious cockpit should make Happi Daze a highly capable sportfish yacht.

Preliminary specs suggest that she has the performance to match her sporty styling. Power comes from a pair of 2,600hp MTU diesel engines for an impressive top speed of 45 knots and comfortable cruising at 38 knots. Weaver Boat Works will set out to prove these figures on sea trials before Happi Daze is delivered to her owner in the coming months.

Further details are being kept under wraps for now, with the total accommodation unclear. Other superyacht projects currently under development at Weaver Boat Works include the American yard’s forthcoming flagship Project DC97, which is due to hit the water before the end of the year.
