2009 High Seas Explorer 63
High Seas 63, steel hull with aluminium superstructure, built to USL 2B survey and various international standards. There is little doubt that she is 'Tonka tough' and the double-skinned hull has twin bilge keels to protect the props and offer sturdy resilience if running aground. Superbly crafted both inside and out, and the paint finish and fairing is of the highest standard. To do this job properly, the hull is framed, welded, sandblasted, zinc coated, filled and faired to 6mm thickness in some sections and then sprayed, inside and out. Custom-made doors, hatches, portholes, bollards and railings are to the highest possible standard.stainless steel gunwale capping which replaces the usual varnished teak. Easy maintenance, tough and highly decorative. Cross bollards and fairleads are huge and everywhere. Two large doors open to the spacious and comfortable saloon, which features large picture windows and excellent visibility. To port is the dinette and ahead of that is the galley with Caesar-stone bench tops. Forward and up to the wheelhouse, with doors either side, is a full-width dash simplistically laid out yet comprehensively equipped, anti-glare reverse sheer windscreens and a large sofa and table for guests to enjoy the voyage.
Forward is a queen-sized island bed, his and hers lockers, air-conditioning controls and a TV/DVD/music system. Aft to port is a bathroom, which has shower and basin facilities while opposite is a separate head with Tecma toilet, basin and mirror. Aft and to port is a guest cabin with upper and lower bunks transversely installed, and quite roomy and well equipped. From the foyer aft, two sliding doors open to the master suite and its centerline queen bed. Sliding doors can remain open this effectively doubles the space of the master suite. The en suite head and shower is most comfortable and duplicates the finishes from the other bathrooms. A very large storage/linen cupboard will keep a vast quantity of towels, sheets and clothing dry and fresh during a long cruise. The master cabin also has another entertainment selection of TV/DVD and music systems, and there are bedside tables and capacious lockers.
The High Seas crew achieves its greatest work within the engineering department, rivaling any competitors product, and Australian built. The twin Cummins QSB 300hp diesels are well installed, smooth, all supported by the ancillary equipment, such as the impressive bilge pumping systems, fire suppression equipment, fuel filtration and pumping systems. The hull is equipped with passive stabilizers welded to the chines, which are most effective in roll control at cruising speed, twin keels keep her upright.
