The art of day sailing

The Bruckmann Daysailer (Canada) enters the design race as a confident daysailer and capable performance yacht. A split personality, she may readily carry upwards of eight individuals for an excursion around the bay, and yet she is equally adept as an overnighter. In either instance she will be a true performer and head turner, as exhibited by her low profile, aggressive sail plan and performance-oriented shoal draft keel. Characterized by a clean deck layout, commodious cockpit, inviting interior, and lightweight glass construction, the Bruckmann Daysailer presents her owner with an extremely versatile sailing yacht, capable of tackling whatever task the day whips up.

EXTERIOR

The weather deck offers a wide, uncluttered working environment for tending to all of the vessel’s needs, even in the most adverse conditions. Only a low profile raised cabin house interrupts the spacious deck forward to accommodate guests below. The aft cockpit offers a secure vantage point from which to observe and adjust all aspects of trim and course heading with all control lines leading to two perfectly located islands athwartship from one another.

The Bruckmann Daysailer features modern rigging and deck hardware components. Manufactures such as Lewmar, Harken and Edson represent the best performance and quality available on the market today and are strategically specified throughout the deck plan. Spars are constructed of economical aluminum with carbon fiber available as an option to achieve the maximum in strength-to-weight performance.

All control lines are lead to the aft cockpit where a single driver can control all aspects of fine-tuning the sails. The main halyard and reefing lines are located on top of the cabin house to port, and can be fitted with an electric winch if requested. A central hydraulic system located at the helm station controls the boom vang and backstay. A 100% roller-furling jib aids the guests in simplifying upwind sailing.

INTERIOR

The interior furthers the smart design features and quality components found on deck. Upon entering the cabin house, the light service galley on port provides guests with such amenities as 12VDC refrigeration, microwave, stainless steel sink and cabinetry for stowing all necessary supplies.

To starboard is a commodious head with sink and storage. Five-inch thick cushions provide comfort for sitting or sleeping while six opening ports and two opening deck hatches allow natural lighting and abundant ventilation. A centerline table is available for interior dining. Forward of the settees are end tables and hanging lockers and the forepeak may be fitted with a V-berth if so desired.

CONSTRUCTION

The E-glass and Core-Cell@ hull and deck are built using the highest quality stitched fabrics and vinyl-ester resins resulting in an extremely durable and light structure. The interior joiner work is comprised primarily of fine, hand-selected, gloss varnished mahogany trim over Formica@ laminated bulkheads and cabinetry, accented by Corian countertops and a traditional teak and holly sole. All hardware is stainless steel.

Yacht Spotting & New Launches

BILLY JOEL’S COMMUTER
VENDETTA BY ZURN YACHT DESIGN

M/Y Vendetta is the big sister to The Runabout. She keeps with Zurn’s blend of classic styling in a 45-kt package, while offering a much larger platform from which to enjoy Long Island Sound and quick jaunts to other coastal destinations.

Vendetta1In the wake of his highly successful 38’ Runabout with 50+ hulls built to date, Grammy-award winning musician Billy Joel again consulted with Zurn on creating an upscale 57’ Commuter Style Yacht. The end result boasts ample cockpit space and interior appointments, yet is lean enough to roar down Long Island Sound leaving other yachts in her wake.  All is styled in the classic manner of the commuter yachts of the 1920s.

Billy Joel’s completion of his Oyster Bay, Long Island real estate and his frequent trips to NYC was the driving force in deciding to proceed with the design and construction of a commuter style yacht. “Her appearance harks back to a bygone era of Long Island Sound commuter boats, combined with the performance and speed of The Shelter Island Runabout,” Zurn said. “She will provide a quick, smooth ride in the often short chop of Long Island Sound and the menacing Hell Gate”.

VendettaWeighing only 40,000 pounds, VENDETTA glides atop the open ocean with speeds in excess of forty knots, while twin 1300 horsepower MAN diesels coupled to POWER-VENT® Marine Drive System quietly drone under a well-insulated engine room. A relatively narrow, modified-V hull, with plumb bow, slight rocker forward and straight sections aft, makes for an admirable performer, whether ambling in the calm of a secluded cove or piercing wind-whipped swells on an open sea.

Vendetta interior1Vendetta was launched in the summer of 2005, but it’s still almost unknown out of the US. The hull was built using advanced resin infusion technique, incorporating vinylester resin infused into a Dupont Kevlar hybrid cloth with Core Cell foam core.  The goal was to keep the boat’s strength to weight ratio as high as possible.  The hull, deck and small parts were assembled and finished at both Coecles Harbor Marine and Derecktors Mamaroneck Yard.

Vendetta InteriorThe enclosed cockpit easily accommodates a group of six, in four individual Stidd 500 Series Low Back Chairs and a twin bench seat. She is equipped with a custom Raymarineelectronics package.  Down below is decidedly open, with only one personal door providing privacy to the head compartment.  There is a raised galley area aft with small dining table.  Forward are two settee/bunks with day bag storage just above and outboard.  Overhead hatches, portlights and dorade vents offer excellent natural illumination and ventilation while air-conditioning and 24vdc lighting provide additional creature comforts.
