  1. Setzer Design Series
    New All American Motoryachts

    Originating from a set of freehand sketches developed by Ward Setzer while
    on sabbatical at the firm's Antigua studio, the 28 to 70 meter New American
    Motoryachts series freshly redefines several long-standing yacht categories.​

    Recognizing the strong American roots of tri-decks, raised pilothouses, flush decks, and commuters, the series strikes a new balance between classic and ultra-contemporary, and consists of a collection of some eighteen new designs the Setzer team will unveil across 2014. Setzer design history begins in the early 1980s, when founder Ward Setzer launched a career under the tutelage of the late J.B. Hargrave. The "Dean of American Naval Architecture," Hargrave had a profound early impact on Setzer's career, instilling a lifelong drive to always ask why and why not as a custom yacht designer.

    For 22 years, the Setzer team has worked with owners and builders to produce timeless and instantly recognizable superyacht designs. With a fleet of over seventy yachts in service, Setzer Yacht Architects is one of the premier yacht design and naval architecture firms in the United States, having produced multiple award-winning yacht designs for construction at shipyards around the world including Northern Marine, Christensen, Richmond, Delta, McMullen & Wing, Lyman-Morse, Trinity, The Hinckley Company, and NISI.
  2. New American 92 Commuter​

    Designed for extended weekend cruising, the 92’ Commuter combines retro-classic styling with a modern underbody designed for speed, responsive performance, and sea-keeping comfort. The design expands upon earlier Setzer projects allowing for owner operation or operation with minimal crew. Pilothouse and flybridge helm stations are designed to maximize visibility for easy passage and docking. An expansive aft deck allows for al-fresco dining or shelters guests while underway. A separate crew / captain’s stateroom features private access separate from guest spaces. The interior allows for 2 generous staterooms as well as a full beam master suite.
  3. New American 112 RPH​

    Expanding upon a current trend toward plumb bow motor yachts, the Flush Deck RPH features a unique stem designed for efficient sea-keeping and smooth cruising through a variety of sea states. Interior accommodations allow for 3 guest staterooms and one full beam master suite. Full crew quarters include 2 staterooms as well as a galley-down layout with dining lounge. The main and flybridge decks include expansive open plans emphasizing dramatic ocean views. The aft deck features an oversized dining area and additional seating areas and sunning pads. The flybridge features a hardtop with skylights, multiple seating areas, a helm station, hot tub, and bar/ grilling area.
  4. New American 125 Explorer​

Tenders are carried on the aft sundeck and launched via a central derrick crane swiveling port and starboard. On the flybridge, a full hardtop affords shade and dry access to the pilothouse below. Various seating, dining, and entertainment areas are sprinkled throughout each decks affording owners and guest multiple options for entertainment. Accommodations include an on-deck full beam master suite with office, four lower deck guest cabins, three crew cabins forward and an engineer’s cabin aft.
