45′ Power Cat ‘Silver Voyager’
B&B Yacht designs completed construction of a 45′ powercat in the spring of 2015. Silver Voyager was designed by Graham Byrnes and was built entirely in house at our shop in Bayboro, NC. The keel was laid and the paint was sprayed by us at our facility. Launched in late 2014, she floated perfectly on her lines and made all of her numbers. She is powered by a pair of 200hp Yanmar diesels and has a top speed of 23 knots and cruises at 15. She has enough fuel capacity for non-stop trans ocean cruising and all the comforts of home. Much of the final fitting out was well documented by her systems engineer Buck Wilde on the hull truth forum. Click here for the thread. See videos below of her running in some nasty chop on the Neuse river during her sea trials.
