Masterful building comes in all forms. Often it is in art, and occasionally, it is in the manufacturing of things, objects we buy to either feel good, or perhaps to make a statement about ourselves and what we value.
Once in a very long while, there are moments in the yacht building business when these components come together in the form of near perfection.
And, the yacht SACHUEST is one of those moments.
She is a superlative yacht with so many custom details in exceptional condition, SACHUEST is indisputably, a CUSTOM BUILT work of art. Having sleeping quarters for six comfortably, and a creative, spacious interior, she shares heritage with Ray Hunts deep V hulls, and with the added advantage of shallow draft features resulting from her Rolls Royce Jet Drive propulsion system, she travels in shallow spots many 50 plus foot vessels may not. Yet there is so much more. Her aft cabin, not often seen in vessels like this, has an enormous cockpit aft of it. Few yachts can claim such a thing. She has a flying bridge, and here is something great, she has a full sized Sub Zero Refrigerator with two freezer drawers beneath.
SACHUEST was built at a cost of nearly $3,000,000, the details and special nature of her build are obvious to those who look deeply with purpose.
This yacht would make a superb platform for a family cruise to the Caribbean or Mediterranean or Florida Keys, Jersey Shore, Cape Cod, Maine, Chesapeake, Bahamas. A European destination is not out of the realm of possibilities.
She is fully equipped. She is superb and we promise you, she deserves your attention.
With less than 250 total engine hours, Full MAN engine service summer 2016, Full Jet service March, April 2017, the purchase of this special yacht is ideal for many buyers seeking that which remains so elusive.
Sachuest has a summer berth arrangement in a lovely, protected, convenient slip, parking included, 2017. Indoor winter storage arrangements may also be included.
Smaller trades like a Hinckley picnic boat may be considered. Dont miss purchasing this American built yacht. The next buyer of a new 50' custom yacht in the USA will pay 4 mn for a yacht as splendid.

The initial bottom layer of planking consists of ¾” T & G Silver Bali laid horizontally over the station molds. The next layers were three 9 mm Okumbe marine grade plywood layers of planking; the first laid 45 degrees to the keel (aft to forward), the second laid 45 degrees to the keel (forward to aft) and the third laid horizontally. Each layer was separately vacuum bagged. The topside used the same construction method, but for reasons of controlling weight, one of the 9mm layers of plywood was replaced with a 1” layer of Corecell foam. The outside layer of the hull was covered with a 24 oz. woven
roving cloth, and a 5’ strip of Kevlar cloth was overlaid down the length of the keel for strength. Hull is Awlgripped Sachuest Grey.
The upper house and bridge were constructed of Nydacore and structural fiberglass. Most of the curved surfaces on the bridge face, boat deck and transom seat were Nydacore, with the back side scarfed, curved and epoxied to maintain the shapes. All Nydacore edges were routed and dressed with solid structural fiberglass.

The yacht was developed with a 24VDC electrical system, which in turn supports a 48 VDC bow thruster and several 12 VDC navigation systems. The HVAC system, refrigerator and electric oven require 110 VAC service and the washer/dryer utilize 220 VAC. There are several battery chargers as part of the overall electrical system: the main battery charger serves the house batteries. A separate charger is dedicated to the engine cranking batteries. In addition to fore and aft shore power connections, the vessel has a 5000 watt Mastervolt inverter that converts DC current into AC power. Additionally, there are two DC-to-DC transformers that reduce 24 VDC to 12 VDC which is required to power the navigation systems and one DC-to-DC step up transformer that increases 24VDC power to 48 VDC to power the electric variable-speed Westmar bow thruster.
Each engine has two alternators; a small alternator that produces DC power that goes directly to the engine cranking batteries and a large 170 AMP alternator that supplies DC power to the house batteries.
The house batteries in turn supply power to the bow thruster batteries and the navigation back-up battery by means of DC-to-DC transformers and/or converters. A separate generator charger is dedicated to the Genset and controlled by a breaker switch in the center right AC breaker panel labeled Genset charger.

SACHUEST was built over a four-year period as a custom project for an experienced New England yachtsman, and conceived to be, without question, the best yacht of its class. Extreme attention was devoted to details, advantageous to the owner. Cold molded construction was chosen for its superior strength, longevity, sound and insulative properties and ability to hold a high-quality finish.
Rolls Royce waterjets and a technologically advanced JetStick control system make this yacht efficient underway and easy to maneuver in tight marinas and access to shallow areas. SACHUEST was designed in the downeast, New England style and is an superbly attractive, seaworthy motor yacht. Her interior is comfortable and oriented to family-style cruising.
Anyone looking for an almost-new, top-quality, high-tech cruising yacht with a traditional appearance would benefit from a close look at this rare piece of art.
