18-meter Carbon Sportfish By Lloyd Stevenson Boat Builders Lloyd Stevenson Boat Builders in New Zealand is a name typically known for building custom boat projects and yacht tenders. One of their newer projects currently under construction is an 18-meter sportfish boat made from carbon. Dennis Harjamaa of Artnautica Yacht Design is responsible for the design of the yacht. Propulsion is via Volvo Penta IPS system ( 2 x VP D11 IPS 800 625 hp each )which is compact enough it creates space-savings on any yacht it is installed on. In the case of this 60-foot sportfish, it frees up the volume under the pilothouse instead of being an engine room. This space is then used for tankage, storage and mechanical equipment needed to be self-sustaining for long periods.
