FEATURED CASE STUDY
Fast and functional
Another successful submarine system
When the 160.7ft / 49m SuperSport motor Yacht ‘Khalilah’ was built by Palmer Johnson in 2014, it required an anchor deployment system that was reliable and robust enough to work on a yacht that could travel up to 40 knots. Palmer Johnson turned to long-time partner Manson Anchors to build the anchors, and Bowmaster to develop the system.
Having worked with award winning boat builder Yachting Developments in the past, Bowmaster was approached as soon as the owner of their latest project confirmed they didn’t just want a regular bow configuration.
After working with the customer to get an in-depth understanding of what they required, it was confirmed the bow needed to be a showpiece – a custom piece of “operational jewellery”.
With a project such as this one, design and innovation were at the forefront of each and every major decision. One important specification in the design of the deployment system was that it was a crew friendly and functional piece of equipment.
