67-ft Hull 66 “Sea Wish” Built to Tame Puerto Rico’s Windswept Waters
Sea Wish was commissioned by an experienced owner who has been involved in the design & construction processes of Hull 66 from Day 1; Providing valuable input from his home port in Ponce, Puerto Rico, as well as over the course of many visits to Jarrett Bay’s facility in Beaufort, North Carolina, the new owner was very involved in crafting his interpretation of sportfishing perfection. Eagerly awaiting Sea Wish’s delivery day, the owner and crew have plans for extensive fishing ventures throughout the Caribbean, including St. Maarten, the Dominican Republic and beyond. The 2,000-gallon fuel capacity, Dometic SeaXchange & Spot Zero watermaker will ensure exceptional range without sacrificing the comforts of pulling into port each day.
Jarrett Bay Marine Park partner Gregory Poole Marine assisted with the installation of the twin Caterpillar C32A engines, each producing 1925 mhp. These engines are joined by a pair of Cat® C2.2T generators rated at 27 kW. The propulsion package is rounded out with Caterpillar’s advanced Three60® Precision Controls which works in tandem with the bow thruster via a joystick to aid in docking and provide precise control of the boat in any direction. With a 34-knot cruise @ 1950 rpm, and WOT clocking in at 41-knots, Jarrett Bay’s formally tested hull bottom and highly sought-after Carolina Flare™ bow feature will provide Hull 66 with one of the driest and fastest rides in her class.
Boarding the cockpit of this newest Jarrett Bay, anglers and guests are met with a top-of-the-line Release Marine fighting chair and expansive mezzanine with full tackle center to starboard. The business end of the boat is brimming with refrigerated and dry storage, ice boxes and additional compartments for cleaning supplies under the gunwales. The tackle center also conceals a double Kenyon electric grill. Quick access to the engine room is found in the centerline mezzanine compartment, while a ladder curving to starboard invites the crew to join the captain on the flybridge.
When entering the salon, the satin-finished teak interior is warm and inviting, while featuring select high gloss pieces to provide a luxurious accent. The console to starboard conceals a 55-inch Smart TV and illuminated custom bottle and glass storage. To port is the L-settee, with a U-shaped dinette forward. The large galley forward to starboard boasts a spacious island with Release Marine barstools, as well 3 under-counter Sub-Zero refrigeration & freezer units in the main cabinetry run. The stunning teak hardwood flooring with maple inlay was handmade by Jarrett Bay’s highly skilled craftsmen and is flanked by ultra-soft, highly durable carpeting.
