Collaborating with New England Boatworks afforded designer Doug Zurn the ability to work with talented custom builders. In the NEB/Zurn 50 (LOA 55′ 3″, 14′ 5″ beam), every detail is considered, and construction time is placed at 10 months. The hull and deck are built using high-tech, epoxy resin-infused composite construction.
Even with the open pilothouse and engine boxes in the deck, the NEB/Zurn 50 offers a quiet ride. The NEB/Zurn 50 is powered by twin MAN 1,200-hp diesel engines and Rolls Royce jet drives. She cruises at 43 knots with a range of 240 nm reaching 52+ knots at the top end incorporating the latest integrated ride control technology to ensure ease of maneuvering. Below-decks is a rich interior that offers both simplicity and luxury, with ease of movement throughout. Joinery is meticulously crafted, with framed panel doors, teak sole and wood lining the hull.
The queen master cabin is located forward, with cedar-lined lockers and ample storage. Marine Air air conditioning and heating is offered throughout the interior and pilothouse, as well as a sound system that also serves the cockpit.
