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
maneuverability.

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.
