Mare-n is a steel displacement motoryacht and her design is based on the famous seagoing Dutch tugboats as built in the last century. She is designed for global cruising: inland waterways (including the French canals), rivers, the Great Lakes, the Mediterranean or the Baltic, or any of the oceans for that matter (transatlantic range!). She would also be perfectly suited to live aboard.
Designed by Vripack founder Dick Boon and the Vripack design team for his personal use, this is the perfect opportunity to acquire a vessel with outstanding pedigree. Incorporating all Dick's experience she truly is a go-anywhere vessel. Presently located in Rhodos.
“Mare-N” is a steel displacement motor yacht with a hull length of 19m30 designed by Dick Boon and the design team of Vripack Yachting International Naval Architects, Sneek - Holland.
Her hull is based on the famous seagoing Dutch tugboats as built in the 30th of the last century but with more beam and less draft. She is designed to cruise in the Mediterranean waters but also to pass the French canals. The masts can be lowered and the upper part of the funnel, which contains the radar and D-GPS antennas, can be dismantled and placed on the boat deck. Also the davits for the wooden dinghy can be dismantled. With everything down the height of the full loaded ship is limited to 3m40. The yacht is built at the shipyard Rein van de Berg in Lemmer - Holland and was launched in May 2002. In 2003 she sailed through the French canals to Turkey.
Her dimensions are: length hull 19m30, length waterline 17m62, beam moulded 4m90, beam overall 5m05, minimum draft 1m43, maximum draft 1m53, displacement 66 m3 at 65% load. Classification CE-A
Cruising speed at 1.500 rpm is ca 7.8 knots. Fuel consumption 16 l/hr. Maximum speed ca 9 knots at 80% load.
The hull, deck saloon, fore cabin and the lower part of the wheelhouse are built of steel 42 according CE rules. The walls of the upper part of the wheelhouse are laminated wood (15 mm solid teak outside, 20 mm plywood in the middle and 15 mm solid mahogany inside). The wheelhouse roof is laminated layers of plywood covered with fibreglass.

The propulsion engine is a Perkins-Sabre marine diesel engine, type M215C with a waste gated exhaust turbine, displacement 6.0 litres, 6-cylinder in line. 154 kW (209 hp) at 2.500 rpm, inter cooling, 24 V electric system with an extra 90 A alternator. Kobelt electronic throttle and pitch control at the inside and outside steering position.
A Korsor gearbox, type KMF HVK-60 with a reduction of 2,86 : 1, clutch and servo for variable pitch control. Korsor three blade controllable pitch propeller (CPP), NiAlBr, diameter 860 mm in a high efficiency Lips thruster. At 1.400 rpm the Perkins engine reaches its maximum torque, so in combination with the controllable pitch propeller the yacht can cruise at 7.8 knots with only 1.500 rpm instead of 2.150 rpm using a fixed propeller. The result is an extreme low fuel consumption of 16 litres per hour for a yacht of 65 tons. Due to the low rpm the noise level is also very low (at cruising speed in the wheelhouse only 55 dB).
With a special ”van der Velde” rudder which turns 2 x 60 degrees the yacht can turn in her own length. In combination with the 25 hp hydraulic bowthruster and the controllable pitch propeller the manoeuvrability of the yacht is superb.
