OVERVIEW: WATERMARK was built for an experienced yachting couple who have enjoyed their yacht and are now moving ashore. Extensive planning was done for this yacht and the owner was on site daily throughout the construction. The architect designed a sea kindly hull intended for extensive offshore cruising by a retired couple, neither of whom are mechanics or technicians, so they could operate the vessel without crew. To help meet these requirements, labor saving mechanical systems and equipment were incorporated and redundancy was built into all critical systems. Systems crucial to basic vessel operation were kept simple to increase reliability and reduce maintenance.

Since the owners anticipated extended passages in the open sea, safety and seaworthiness were critical. Their intention to cruise in remote parts of the world dictated the selection of equipment, and all mechanical, electrical and plumbing components are readily available and serviceable worldwide. Maintenance of watertight integrity was important, as was the minimizing of motion in rough water.

Routine stability checks by the architect confirmed that the vessel was designed with an abundant margin of safety. Comparison with the USCG weather criteria for ocean going vessels in fully exposed water conditions (a conservative measurement for ships that entails 100 knot winds) indicates that by the most conservative calculations this vessel exceeds the criteria by an impressive 14% margin. Other sea keeping considerations include: a motion-dampened hull form augmented by active stabilization: freeboard and bow sections that offer resistance to pitch and vertical acceleration. The fine bow with narrow chine forward keeps running resistance low in all sea conditions and ensures that very little water is taken over the bow.

WATERMARK is the result of a careful collaboration between the owners, their architect, two professional surveyors, and a conscientious builder. Since launching in July 2001 the owners have lived aboard full time and cruised from Vancouver BC through the Panama Canal, the North coast of South America, the Mediterranean, throughout the Caribbean and Bahamas, the East Coast of the U.S. and the Canadian Maritimes.

REMARKS: WATERMARK is a beautiful and comfortable Custom Motor Yacht, powered by economical running, 800 hp diesels. She is easily handled by two persons and is perfectly suitable for live aboard and as a long range cruising yacht. To quote from the final Condition and Valuation Survey: “This is an exceptional vessel and bears no relationship in terms of quality or capability to production vessels of similar size, far exceeding them in both areas.”
