SEAHORSE MARINE - Seahorse Marine
SEAHORSE 52 LOA FOOT TRAWLER YACHT.
Beautiful, strong and available at an unbeatable price,
The Seahorse 52, 50' plus a 2' built in swim/dive/boarding platform, is a pilothouse design with a large wide body main saloon aft. By special order walkways can be installed on one side or both. An optional flybridge is available.
Below are two queen sized sleeping cabins with heads, one with a separate shower, one with a tub. We have split the forward cabin into two double bunk cabins on special order. There is a large lazarette storage area with a watertight bulkhead aft of the generator work-shop room. Forward of the workshop is the engine room which, in the twin engine versions, has almost 6 feet of stand-up heard room.
Single or twin marine diesel engines are our standard providing good 7 to 9 knot cruise capabilities and a 11 knot top. The Seahorse 52 is a full keel, semi-displacement, round chine hull. It is able to exceed its 9.1 knot hull speed by a several knots and is very fuel efficient in the normal 7 to 9 knot speed range.
We have delivered 31 units and feedback from owners has allowed the Seahorse 52 to evolve into a great passagemaker with many unique features not found on other boats. For example:
1) Our 700 gallon three tank fuel system incorporates a fuel polishing system and a priming pump for safety. Optional 300 gallon long-range cruise tanks available.
2) Tank venting and filling lines are designed to almost make it impossible to spill any fuel overboard. Considering oil spill penalties these days I'm sure it won't be long before our system will be copied by others.
3) An 8KW toroidal isolation transformer is standard for electrolysis protection as well as allowing 220 and 110 volts service in the boat and dual voltage dock input.
4) All inlet thru-hulls are located in one sea chest to cut the number of holes in the hull.
5) Our dash safety Systems Monitor uses visual and audio warnings to tell the person on watch the status of every system in the boat including high engine room temperature, high bilge water, engine water flow, and any pump running.
6) Our unique "log knocker" prop protecting skeg is great for areas with a lot of logs or debris in the water.
7) A full stand up workbench and engine room (twin engines)in a 52 foot boat!
Interiors can be teak or cheery wood with teak being the most popular. All windows have powder-coated aluminum frames with screens and the pilothouse windshields are 10MM thick.
