The 59 is actually a 25-plus-knot yacht, with two hearty 1,000 hp Cat C-18s tucked under the hood. Standard power is a pair of C-9s (500 hp). But who wants a 2,000-hp, 30-mph Grand Banks? Well, besides Peter Janssen and me, you do. Because you don't have to use all that power. If you want to motor along at 8 knots, you'll have long legs and good fuel economy. But if something large and red appears on your weather scope, you have the speed to outrun it or simply get the hell out of the way.
