A new yacht concept is being built by Jetten Shipyard, styled by Cor D. Rover, with naval architecture by Van Oossanen. The vessel has a length of 65 ft and features Van Oossanen’s Fast Displacement Hull and a Hull Vane®.
The Jetten 65 can be seen as a new type of ‘aft cabin yacht’. The design provides for maximum comfort onboard, large open living spaces, a comfortable VIP cabin in the forward part of the yacht, and an owner’s cabin with panoramic views in the aft part.
Maximum performance and comfort is guaranteed by Van Oossanen’s patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF), allowing the yacht, featuring two 550 HP Cummins engines, to reach 20 knots – providing excellent fuel efficiency and sailing comfort. This is further enhanced by the addition of Van Oossanen’s patented Hull Vane®. Apart from an average fuel saving over the total speed range of 11%, the Hull Vane® reduces motions in waves. The Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations carried out show that in the sea conditions typically encountered in the North Sea heave motions are reduced by 7%, pitching motions by 13%, and vertical accelerations on the aft deck by 10%.
The build of the vessel commenced in June 2016. The Jetten 65 is scheduled for presentation in 2017.
