Maine's Front Street Shipyard say they are working with Setzer Yacht Architects to develop design documentation for a new motoryacht series. Featuring four new designs from 28 to 40 meters, the series is an offshoot from Setzer’s broader 2014 portfolio of “New American Motoryachts”.

Included in the series is a 28-meter “Modern Commuter,” a 34-meter “Flushdeck RPH,” a 38-meter “Modern Explorer,” and a 40-meter “Vintage Tri-Deck.” These yachts will be actively marketed for construction at Front Street Shipyard.

The series presents several traditional yacht categories – commuters, raised pilothouses, explorers, and tri-decks – with tastefully modern styling, amenities, and details. They are designed to support all the modern conveniences today’s yacht owners are coming to expect, including wide open transom areas, great outdoor spaces, panoramic views, abundant natural light, state-of the art office setups, multi-zone entertainment systems, and the possibility of owner-operation and pod propulsion in the smaller yachts.

“Setzer’s New American Motoryacht series represents the direction we at Front Street Shipyard see the U.S. superyacht industry moving,” said JB Turner, president of Front Street Shipyard. “Based on our conversations with existing clients, yacht brokers and industry representatives, we believe Setzer’s concepts capture the desires of owners, captains and charter clients.”

Collaboration between Front Street Shipyard and Setzer Yacht Architects began in July of 2013, when Turner visited the design firm’s U.S. studios to preview early sketches. “JB had an opportunity to handpick a few concepts that he thought would be great matches for Front Street Shipyard’s customers,” said Ward Setzer, president of Setzer Yacht Architects. “My design team and I finished developing the concepts with additional feedback and research.”
