Cape Scott has announced ice-class hulls as standard on its latest 42-metre design.

Cape Scott has released its latest design, a 42-metre semi-custom explorer superyacht, which comes with a Lloyd’s Ice Class 1C-compliant hull.

Watertight bulkheads in the hull help protect against flooding and fire, and to maintain buoyancy in case of a hull breach. As well as being important when cruising in icy waters, the reinforced hull, with increased hull plate thickness in areas most susceptible to damage, is an additional comfort for many owners who may not cruise in those conditions, but place a high priority on safety.

There is accommodation for 12 guests on board, with a crew of six. She enjoys a top speed of 15 knots, and is capable of covering over 6,200 nautical miles in economical cruise mode.
