MCM in Newport, Rhode Island, has been appointed the owner’s representative for this 68-foot Doug Zurn design that Delta Marine is building in Seattle.

The owner, according to Peter Wilson of MCM, has had several production boats and wants to upgrade the quality of his next Downeast-style express cruiser to a superyacht standard. “The only way to do that was with a custom design and a bespoke shipyard,” Wilson stated in a press release.

Construction will be infused epoxy, e-glass and Corecell/Airex for a displacement of just over 30 tons at half-load. Seakeeper stabilizers and Humphree interceptors will provide ride stability.
