INTRODUCING THE ALL NEW 64' OFFSHORE PILOTHOUSE
It’s difficult to discuss Offshore’s all-new 64’ Pilothouse (64PH) without referring back to the yacht it will replace – the enduring and much admired Offshore 62’ Pilothouse. For decades, the Offshore 62 was one of the company’s bread-and-butter models, with a production run of over 100 units. Certain proof of a successful design.
Recently, a 62’ fan asked us, “Why the 64PH? The 62 is such a great boat.” Valid question. The 62’, although still a great boat, is starting to show its age. Time marches on, and an older design can only be refined so much. As is the case for almost all products, eventually you just have to start over with a clean sheet of paper. This is true for Boeing airliners, Ferraris, Apple smartphones, and Gillette razors. New-build clients want a yacht that checks all their up-to-the-minute boxes, and the 64PH will be a showcase for the newest and best technologies. But this is not newness for newness sake. All of Offshore’s experience, which goes back to the post WWII era, is brought to bear on each one of the 1,000s of decisions required to develop a new yacht.
Here’s some examples of how the 64PH will evolve from the prior 62 and become a new yachting benchmark.
The older 62 did not have a stand-up engine room, but designing in more headroom without creating a tall, towering boat is a challenge. Nevertheless, we found the solution(s), and the 64PH maintains a low overall profile. The 64PH engine room is going to be amazing. Fuel tanks are against the forward engine room bulkhead, freeing up the outboard areas and simplifying our manifolds. The generators are now situated further aft inside the lazarette, creating even more space in the engine room for equipment installations and ease of access. More room in the engine room!
A super-sized aft-deck engine room hatch provides unhindered access to mechanicals. And, since the aft deck is now raised, the lazarette has tons of additional space and headroom.
The optional fully-extended boat deck provides space for all the toys anyone is likely to want and complete shade below on the aft deck. The 64’s wider 18-foot beam will, of course, provide a liberal amount of general elbow room but will also allow for several different interior layout options and a wider variety of engine choices. Additional beam also allows an optional aft deck built-in settee and table providing a delightful lounging area (or, leave it open to serve as a cockpit).
A sample of layout options includes fore or aft master bunk arrangements, a third head for the bunk room, larger bunks throughout, and the option of a second private stair to the master stateroom – a feature most boats in this range don't offer.
We can also create a main deck layout similar to the previous 62' for those who find it functional (and most do!), or we can create an open salon/galley area with a center island. We also have an aft-galley layout with an all-glass aft bulkhead that opens onto an aft-deck bar. This version also permits a main deck day head. Interior design can be traditional, or modern, or anywhere in between. It’s up to you.
Added freeboard and a refined spray chine will keep the water in the ocean where it belongs and make the 64PH a very dry boat. A large, curved, three-window windshield provides unrestricted visibility forward. Due to the application of new materials and design capabilities, vessel, floatation is improved which enhances the boat’s performance and fuel usage.
Like our other models, the 64PH will have all the latest equipment such as Seatorque, Joystick Maneuvering, and now the Seastar Optimus electric/hydraulic steering system. Options for systems such as Maretron or Octoplex are always on the table.
The 64PH price range is $3.3M to 3.7M. We offers many options for individualizing your new boat. You’re the boss – what would you like?
