Interior Layout
Privateer galley
Privateer‘s trunk cabin design helped Jarrett Bay deliver on the owner’s special request for impressive headroom. Notable headroom includes the engine room at 6′ 6″, the salon and helm area at 6′ 9″ and the lower level including galley and companionway offer an astonishing 7’ 4″ of vertical clearance.

Hull 63’s interior spaces are not only spacious but also comfortably well-appointed. Guests enter the salon from the raised mezzanine through a set of solid teak, double electric sliding doors. The interior warmly welcomes guests with its wide-plank vertical grain, satin-finish teak floors, naturally illuminated by the near-360 degrees of glass windows allowing for plenty of light and unobstructed views.

With the helm on the main level to starboard, and a dinette adjacent to port, the galley is forward to port down a couple steps with plenty of natural lighting thanks to the trunk cabin side windows. Adjacent to the galley is a cozy sitting area and full head with shower, plus 2 staterooms forward including the master and 1 stateroom abaft.

Cockpit
Privateer cockpit and swim platform
The integrated swim platform is another feature that sets this Carolina boat apart from her class; both in style and utility. The swim platform offers the owner and guests an easy launch of their personal watercraft, including kayaks and paddleboards. The full walk-through transom door provides for ease of travel from the platform to the main cockpit for guests, as well as the day’s catch. And at 136 square feet, the cockpit was built for fighting fish as much as for taking the entire family on a scenic island hop. Familiar features include an ice maker and refrigerator/freezer units hidden in the mezzanine seating and steps, accompanied by a clever pop-up console that features a grill for outdoor meal prep.
Engine Room
Privateer engine room
The Privateer‘s exceptionally tall owner wanted an open feel and abundant amounts of headroom throughout and that goal was also achieved in the engine room. Offering six and a half feet of vertical clearance is just one of the impressive dimensions of this space. Hull 63’s equipment and engine area was laid out to also offer full access to all sides of her twin Caterpillar C18 ACERT engines for ease of maintenance.

Other systems like her Cat 27kW generators and fuel filters have also been positioned for quick service. These smaller displacement marine engines from Cat boast 1,136 horsepower each, providing enough power to push the Privateer adeptly through heavy water while maintaining commendable efficiency.

Extras
Privateer
This 67′ Sport Yacht was purpose-built for her owner to enjoy everything on the water; from fishing and cruising to launching kayaks and paddleboards for island exploration. Her hardtop holds true to the retro theme with a custom arch that houses two Garmin radar arrays and the 24” KVH Satellite TV antenna along with other aerials. A new twist is the two built-in hardtop racks offering out-of-the-way storage for up to 14’ paddleboards.

This 67-footer utilized high-tech construction techniques to decrease the dry weight and improve operating efficiency. Lightweight core materials were used in major components including the cabin sides, cabin top and trunk cabin. These core materials are then sandwiched with E-glass and vacuum-infused for a high strength to weight ratio. Focusing on weight savings in large components that are placed higher up in the boat also helped to lower the overall center of gravity, notably improving stability and handling.

      We could find a way to accommodate on a new build. Privateer’s draft is just under 5′ and if we put antennas on mast on fold down bracket mounts along with lay-back riggers, we could get air draft right at the 19′ required for the loop.
