Presently under construction is a new concept by Hoek Design for a chase boat destined for a Hoek Design sailing superyacht. The concept of the yacht is unique and designed around several purposes the yacht needs to fulfil.

The boat had to have a Pacific range meaning she is able to be powered by engines underway for 750 miles at cruising speed. The boat is designed with two 925 hp SCANIA engines to drive fixed propellers for a cruising speed of 15 knots and a top speed of 25 knots.
The yacht is under construction at Claasen Shipyards in the Netherlands and this is the 27th project that Hoek Design and Claasen have collaborated on. The aluminium hull is being built in the Netherlands and fit out, technical installations and all joinery work will be done at Claasen. The yacht will be built to superyacht standards as far as finish, styling, details and technical installations are concerned.
