Swiftships Launches Detroit Diesel-Powered Custom Motoryacht

Swiftships, Inc., recently launched their first privately owned custom motoryacht, the Safe Conduct II, just 16 months after commencing construction. This is the first vessel of its size and type to be built in Louisiana.

The overall length of the Safe Conduct II is 117 feet with a beam of 25 feet. The vessel is powered by twin Detroit Diesel 16V-92TA engines (total horsepower of 2,800), and the vessel is capable of trans-Atlantic cruises with its crew of five. The all-aluminum motoryacht was designed by Fryco of Houston, with the interior design by Global Marine Design and Construction.

The owner's stateroom is situated forward, across the full width of the vessel, and features a custom 7-foot silk batik surrounded by suede cloth walls and overheads. The split bath has inlaid marble walls and floor and a Jacuzzi tub.

Twin guest staterooms, each with adjoining baths, are located amidship with a full-width VIP guest stateroom aft. The galley features Corian countertops with all modern conveniences.

The captain's stateroom is located just off the main bridge.

The Safe Conduct II represents a tremendous accomplishment for the owner, Swiftships, and designers, incorporating the owner's wishes with craftsmanship, esthetics, engineering and technology.
