Sporty design

New Zealander Isaac Burrough has released his latest design, a 22 metre runabout.

09 October 2017


It features classic lines and an estimated top speed of 45 knots (52mph) provided by two 1800 horsepower engines, driving two waterjets.

The foundation of the exterior design is the classically shaped hull, with the flared bow flowing into a tumblehome stern, giving the yacht an elegant and poised stance. A minimalist approach to the design detailing, such as concealing all mullions behind the glass windows, gives the design a modern and sophisticated aesthetic.

The minimalistic styling is continued in the hull windows; a long, continuous strip of glass creates a sleek profile as well as filling the lower deck with ample natural light. Two interior layout options, either with or without crew, offers a versatile design capable of fulfilling many roles.

The crewed option features a large owner’s cabin in the bow, complete with a walk in wardrobe and a large ensuite bathroom. In the aft, a guest cabin with an ensuite bathroom sits to port, whilst the two-person crew cabin and galley sit to starboard. This configuration is seen as an ideal mini-superyacht, perfect as a retreat for a couple.


Alternatively, the design presents an ideal platform to be used as a support boat for a grand prix sailing superyacht, acting as additional accommodation for guests or professional race crew, and plenty of space for dining and entertaining.

The second layout is geared more as a weekender or family boat. The crew cabin is replaced with a second guest cabin, easily configurable with either double or twin berths. This layout is accommodated by reducing the size of the owner’s cabin and relocating the galley further forward.

 Isaac Burrough said of his design, “having assessed the market and seen a lot of boats with contemporary designs, I wanted to design a boat that was honest to the classic lines that so many people love.

“The result holds the integrity of a classically styled boat, whilst also being truly modern in its feel and approach.”

Above in the saloon, the combination of the wrap-around windscreen and a large skylight creates an open and light-filled space, perfect for relaxing during the evening or escaping the elements.

The aft deck features two symmetrical dining tables suitable for up to 12 guests, further enhancing the yacht’s ability to play a supporting role to a larger superyacht. Aft of this, two large sun pads lay flush with the teak deck, creating the perfect place to relax. A hatch in the steps descending to the swim platform reveals concealed storage for a Williams Turbojet 285 tender, whilst the large swim platform makes a great base for scuba diving and swimming.
