A new boat line hailing from the wild waters of B.C. seeks to blend the posh comforts of luxury yachts with the durability and overbuilt ruggedness of performance aluminum boats. Enter Richmond, B.C.-based Tactical Custom Boats from builder Platinum Marine, which is touting their new 40’ T40-EY (Express Yacht)Tactical One design set to launch in April.
The deep vee, planning hull shape coupled with the all-aluminum build and twin outboards (Seven Marine 627-hp), gives an outward appearance of sport or military boat. However, there are some features that are downright jaw dropping: lithium iron batteries, Seakeeper Gyro Stablizer, racecar-style helm, full floation collar, and more. Coupled with the luxurious queen-size island master stateroom, gourmet galley, and enclosed head, there are definitely yachtie features to be found too.
The twin outboards mentioned previously provide 1,254 horses of power, a generous amount for a vessel of this size. The manufacturer lists a range of 550 miles.
If you want fancy and tough, check out the T40-EY Tactical One. Keep an eye out for the first ones this year! Contact Platinum Marine for more information or you can find more at tacticalcustomboats.com. The T40-EY Tactical One is listed at $1,092,000.
