|"Acharne" is an ultra light displacement trawler completed and engineered by Ocean Voyager, builders of rugged offshore expedition yachts. Hull was built by New England Boat Works to a Bill Langen design. Constructed in carbon, epoxy and Nomex core.
o LIGHT : Fine entry and long waterline 80 feet/ 20 tons fully loaded
o EASY :operated only by two people without any crew; low maintenance on very simple mechanical systems with a practical light weight interior.
o SPEED : 2.6 g/per/hour 9 knot up wind cruising speed, 2.2 g/per/hour 12 knot or more downwind cruising speed. The lowest carbon foot print and fuel consumption possible for a fast ocean going powerboat capable of long passages.
o SPACE : An immense back deck, a trademark of Ocean Voyager with comfortable outside accommodation, water access for diving, easy dinghy retrieval and storage on deck, deck stowage for a good size tender and one motorcycle plus easy access to the dive compressor and dive gear.
o GREEN : very large solar panel arrays, Ocean voyager has achieved a zero diesel charging electrical system at anchor with limited daylight air conditioning operated by solar. A new milestone. O STABILITY : This was achieved with low displacement, inherent stability from low deck and cabin weight plus inside and outside ballast. Hydraulic fin stabilizers for comfort, not for safety.
