Sea Force IX

The Florida-based boatyard Sea Force IX, Inc. utilizes composite solutions when creating performance fishing yachts of a five-star luxury standard.

The Sea Force IX staff has experience in boatbuilding and sport fishing. Captain Ron Rookstool, the company’s president and CEO, has spent many hours at sea, learning first-hand what is required to make a fishing tour relaxing and pleasant. That knowledge is now invested in his shipyard. Rookstool and his Sea Force IX colleagues devote their time to the design of sport yachts, each optimized to a client’s specific needs.

The importance of good equipment and design should not be underestimated when building a fishing yacht. Sea Force IX, quality is everything; the company said it uses only the finest FEQ (First European Quality) hardwoods and veneers available, along with Premium Vinylester, Divinycell core and non-woven and epoxy construction baked for full cure, the staff at Sea Force IX knows what it takes to ensure a seaworthy craft that withstands any weather.

For more than ten years, Sea Force IX has had a reliable partner in DIAB, whose materials and support are well appreciated. One of the yard’s latest projects, a 94.5’ sport fishing yacht, was built using DIAB Divinycell H and took 1.5 years to complete. The project manages to successfully integrate a high-performance sport fishing platform with the exquisite luxury of a mega yacht.

The company’s unique design combines a monolithic construction system with an epoxy resin secondary bonding, allowing the structural strength of the hull and all its components to work as one unit. In addition, all materials and equipment are weighed. Correctly placed within the hull design, the single units together deliver an accurate and true center of gravity, ensuring that the yacht runs safely and efficiently in almost any condition.

With this focus on details, Sea Force IX is able to offer yachts with great performance on the open ocean, providing a stable, dry and comfortable ride, fingertip maneuverability and unparalleled fuel economy. The hull geometry also ensures that each vessel is able to handle its twin high-horsepower engines (of up to 2 x 2,600 hp) with dynamics that have to be experienced. Each sport yacht is designed to fit the client’s individual wishes and needs, which truly makes it the ultimate ride.
