Industry News

Bristol, Rhode Island-based Goetz Custom Technologies is working on an prepreg carbon model that will be pushed along by triple Volvo Penta IPS3s, the biggest versions of the steerable pod drives to date; indeed the IPS1200s are presently at the pre-production phase.

JULY 2009

The new ‘G65’ will be up to 30 per cent lighter than comparably sized GRP boats, so will be faster, more stable, more manoeuvrable and more fuel-efficient. She should cruise comfortably at 36 knots with a maximum speed close to 50 knots.

Basic spec – Goetz G65...
LOA 19.8m (65ft)
LWL 17.3m (56ft 8in)
Max Beam 5.69m (18ft 8in)
Draught 1.47m (4ft 10in)
Displacement 34,1 tonnes (75,000lbs)
Engines/Propulsion 3 x Volvo Penta IPS3 (1200).
