The Queenship 68 Extended Aft Deck Pilothouse Motoryacht, with her 13 foot aft California deck, the largest in the Admiralty Series. The 68 has level decks designed for water sports fun and plenty of entertaining room. The pilothouse has a vaulted eight-foot ceiling; both the lazarette and engine room have six-foot, two-inch clearance and lots of room to swing a wrench or store gear. Wraparound pilothouse windows provide superb sight lines. The spacious flybridge enjoys the optional deck extension, which help to facilitate on-board entertaining with room for a tender or water toys. For precise docking and maneuvering, the flybridge offers unobstructed visibility in every direction. Pilothouse doors to both port and starboard open onto side decks protected inboard and outboard by high-quality stainless steel handrails. Precise engineering, advanced materials and techniques, and hand crafting have gone into every Queenship hull. A solid bottom, made entirely of blended resins with vinylester base, is fused to sides and bulkheads that are laminated using a variety of sound-damping FRP core cell materials that bolster hull strength while decreasing weight and maintenance. Each hull is laid-up layer by layer, ensuring consistency from hull to hull. Framing and hull-and-deck reinforcement systems using Old World joinery techniques distribute stress evenly around the circumference, further strengthening hull integrity and longevity. Queenship hulls are spanned by principal floors crafted from strong yet lightweight, honeycombed laminates that suppress sound and vibration at every speed. V-shaped bows slice effortlessly through waves to give a softer ride in rough seas. The end result is a seaworthy hull that delivers reliable, quiet, and efficient performance.
Queenship worked with the boat owner to help them customize their yacht, using exotic hand-finished hardwoods and stainless steel fittings and quality fabrics. The experience and heritage of Queenship's master mariners and shipwrights was enriched by computer modeling, extensive tank testing, and exhaustive sea trials. Queenships are designed to withstand even the most severe conditions and have proven themselves in the wild, unforgiving coastal waters from the tropics to Alaska.
