Design 2652 - Nighthawk - 55' Motoryacht

Launched in 1999 by Lyman Morse Boatbuilders, this design combines the salty aesthetics of commercial vessels of both the Pacific Northwest and New England for a very distinctive looking yacht meant to go to sea. A pair of 660hp Caterpillar engines drive the deep V hull at a cruise speed of 18 knots and a maximum speed of 22 knots. With 1,000 gallons of fuel, a range of 1,000 nautical miles is achieved at 10 knots with 10% reserves. The propellers are located in deep tunnels for reduced draft.

The interior layout is spacious and features a large pilothouse. In addition to the helm station, the pilothouse has a comfortable sitting and dining area and a navigation/office area. The main salon is combined with an open, well-equipped galley, separated by a counter. At the aft end of the salon, a large door allows the living space to be extended into the aft cockpit.

The owners, realizing they would seldom require three staterooms as typically found in boats of this size, opted for accommodations for four in two generous staterooms, each with their own private head. With long cruises in mind, opposite the guest cabin is a utility room that contains a washer, dryer, ice-maker, workbench and tools. The workbench converts into a spare berth for use by crew when needed.
