The FPB Programme is expecting…

The FPB Programme is Expecting

We are pleased to announce that a new baby sister is on the way. This FPB’s genetic makeup includes many of the capabilities and breakthrough characteristics of her larger FPB 97 and 78 siblings, with doses of the best features from the FPB 83 and 64s.

A stunning interior, twin engines, a lovely workshop, a unique take on the Matrix deck, a basement with almost full headroom that invites walk-in closets and a large office, along with 265 nautical mile per day ocean crossing speed, with the tankage to do this for 5,000+ nautical miles, are a few of the unique features that are offered on the all new FPB 70.

FPB 70 #1 is already sold, and we begin construction in early March at Circa Marine in New Zealand.

In addition to FPB 70 #1, we currently have 4 FPBs under construction: An FPB 64, and 3 x FPB 78s. FPB 78 #1 will launch in the late Spring with FPB 64 #11 a few months later.  FPB 78-2 splashes the end of 2016, with FPB 78-3 launching in 2017.

The FPB 70 is an exciting development for the Programme and we are already in discussion with clients about the build of other hulls.
