The NC22 engine-hull design combination
provides required performance and fuel
economy, along with stability and ride
characteristics typically found in large
boats. The low-drag hull shape with 15
degrees dead-rise at the transom
provides desired seaworthiness, while a
30 inch draft makes it an ideal boat for
shallow waters as well. A large rudder
provides for high and precise
From the outset our requirement
was to design a vessel that could
be configured as a multi-purpose
boat. It had to excel at both
inshore and offshore use, provide
comfortable cruising with optimum
open-water stability, have high
fuel-efficiency, extended range,
and be trailer-able.
In answer to those requirements,
ROBERT KING YACHT DESIGN
responded with a design that
optimized our given parameters of
geometry, ride dynamics, and
weight distribution and created a
hull that is stable and easily
pushed, powered by a single
inboard diesel engine in the range
of 150 to 210 HP.

Our design integrates time tested techniques and new technologies into a high-performance boat. Safety, ride, stability,
speed, operating cost, build quality, useful life, resale value all played a role in our design decisions.
