Vripack designs 17m Family Trawler for Brazilian waters

To make it possible for the active Brazilian family to explore their fast and beautiful South American waters, their yacht will be equipped with all the necessary comfort and water sport accessories and, above all, have exceptional seagoing cruising characteristics. Based on the well proven Vripack Trawler range, the new design of the Vripack Trawler 1700 easily meets these criteria.

The owner desires a 100% family & fun yacht which will become the first Vripack Trawler to be built in the new upcoming market in Brazil, making it 2-1 for Brazil! The layout of this steel trawler with aluminum superstructure was designed in close deliberation with the owner. His wishes were clear; large exterior living area’s to provide maximum outdoor pleasure and functional storage for several water sport accessories.

The flybridge is equipped with a newly designed radar arch and bimini above the outdoor steering position and comfortable L-seat. Aft a dinghy and sailing boat can be stored beside the crane. Along the stainless steel safety railing, Vripack has created plenty of space for surf board storage.

The modern appearance of this 17m Vripack Trawler is created by the higher bulwark, the glued in windows for a more sturdy appearance and by removing the traditional dodger. This yacht with high flared bow sections is propelled by two diesel engines and with her specially designed lines plan, this semi-displacement yacht reaches a maximum speed of 12 knots. The 3500 liter fuel tanks are ample for a ship this size providing 2550 nautical miles of range at a cruising speed of 8 knots. The excellence of this Vripack design definitely brings the score back to a 2-2 draw.
