Fifth Hull Built by Family Spanning Three Generations
Jarrett Bay has built many sportfish convertibles in the sixty-foot range over its history, but a series of recent 64’ commissions have established this size as a signature length for their custom fleet. Similar to every hull built before her, REBELETTE was designed and built to the owner’s exact specifications and requests. Although the Alexseal Cloud White hull and top sides, along with the centerline helm station built into a peninsula console on the flying bridge, may resemble other recent Jarrett Bay builds, other likenesses are few in this latest launch.
Hull 65 is the first new Jarrett Bay to be splashed with Caterpillar Marine’s latest propulsion technology: the C32B. This latest propulsion technology has undergone hundreds of hours of strenuous testing in Jarrett Bay’s hull 48, IRON LEADER, serving as the research & demo platform for Cat®. With twin turbos on each V12 engine, hull 65’s C32Bs are rated at 2,025 hp and are complimented by the CAT® Three60 Precision Control joystick system. REBELETTE’s sea trials did not disappoint with smooth rides found at both an efficient cruise of 37kts, as well as wide open speeds pushing 44kts. Additionally, these CAT powerplants were extremely responsive in maneuvering her loaded weight of approximately 98,000 lbs as nimbly as vessels a fraction of her weight.
Entering the expansive salon, guests’ eyes will be drawn to the salient galley island forward to port, adjacent to a dinette teeming with concealed storage. Another unconventional touch in this newest Jarrett Bay is the addition of a settee opposite the traditional L-shaped settee to port. Seating is plentiful between these two plush spaces, and when including the island barstools and dinette. A flatscreen TV rises out of concealed cabinetry from behind the additional settee and is complemented by a high-tech entertainment system.
The exterior profile of REBELETTE has a sleek look thanks to her massive 44-foot RUPP Outriggers and the absence of a busy tuna tower. Her custom Bausch Towers hardtop conceals high-speed teaser reels and electronics above the peninsula console. The helm is loaded with electronics from Triton Marine including three 22-inch Garmin multi-function displays. Forward of the console is a chaise lounge that conceals a 60-gallon chest freezer. The chaise is flanked by lounge seating to port and starboard with plenty of dry storage beneath.
To accentuate those fine Carolina Flare® lines, hull 65 features an Everett Nautical-designed faux teak toe rail and cabin molding, which offers less maintenance with the same beauty of real gloss teak accents. Beneath the faux teak is high-density foam core, which is heavily glassed for ultimate rail strength while keeping weight considerations in check.
REBELETTE’s appearance dockside invokes the senses with a feeling of speed and agility, even as she remains at rest awaiting push-off from the dock for the next adventure. Thanks to her 1,650-gallon fuel supply, this latest build from Jarrett Bay will be stretching her legs well beyond the Mid-Atlantic coast for adventure in the Caribbean and beyond!
