Pluckebaum Custom Boats recently launched a custom 80 ft. corporate coastal yacht, designed for dining and entertaining large groups of corporate customers. The vessel is designed to take customers on a three or four hour afternoon or evening cruise, and serve them a complete, sit-down gourmet meal. The yacht was built to replace an older 65 ft. vessel. The interior joiner work features custom milled tongue-and-groove African mahogany walls, ceilings and cabinetry. Outside the vessel is a unique double rail and stanchion liferail system made from solid brass to the owner's specification. The bridge includes a complete hard enclosure with remote wing controls in a fully air conditioned and heated environment. Mechanical specifications include propulsion power from twin 3208 TA Caterpillar at 435 hp each; two Westerbeke gensets at 32 kW and 25 kW; a Vetus bowthruster, plus a full array of electronics, including Furuno radar, Garmin GPS Map 220, Simrad Autopilot and a 3.5 million candlepower Carlisle Finch Searchlight.
