Built by Colin Smith Boat Builders from an all-new GMD Marine Kit, Maximum Achiever is the spiritual successor to Stan Priddles’s 54′ GMD designed vessel “Quiet Achiever” as well as other successful vessels such as “Mystique” and “Aqua Jade”. With a more upright stem, finer entry, wider reverse chines and more we’ve included a decade of design refinement to the hull shape while maintaining the clasically beautiful lines.
Initial sea trials in a 15-20 knot westerly gave 25 knots sprint at 2300rpm from the 900hp Scania, cruising at 19 knots and 1800rpm. Skipper Ben Wilson, who oversaw the fitout, tells us the vessel is smooth and comfortable, turns well and runs very dry. Joking he hasn’t had a chance to test the wipers yet!
Our rock lobster fishing hulls are extremely seaworthy and efficient, making them ideal for many fisheries, charter, patrol and workboat duties.
