Preview: Queenship Passagemaker 60'A Modern Canoe Stern Trawler Queenship is about to capture the hearts of traditional yachtsmen and displacement seekers alike. Displaying a ship’s stack atop, a Portuguese bridge and just the right amount of teak, Queenship’s new 60’ Passagemaker is a canoe stern return to yesteryear. In recent years the trawler segment has been speeding up, sorta speak. Boomers, not ready to retire to cave-dwelling condos and watch life pass on the Discovery Channel are opting for a new way to see the world… 10 knots at a time. With a GPS and wireless Internet to keep track of their vessel and stock positions, Queenship is about to launch the perfect vehicle for cruising into the golden years. Designed in conjunction with Sparkman & Stevens, the Passagemaker 60’ is a little gem set to travel far on little. Among its many unusual features (for a canoe stern) is an integrated swim platform with a conventional transom beneath the waterline that eliminates squatting at speed. Powered by a single Lugger 340 hp diesel turning at 1800 rpm, she’ll roam 3,000 nm @9.5 knots. Backing down to 8 knots, a 5,000 nm range is projected! With a fuel capacity of 2,400 gallons, fill-ups are far & few between.
