J Craft chooses Abu Dhabi yacht show to launch the unique Torpedo sports cruiser in the UAE

United Arab Emirates: Wednesday, February 17 - 2010 @ 11:56

The launch of the Torpedo in the Middle East sees the dawning of a new era for J Craft, who expect their boats, which feature classical designs from a bygone era, with the latest in technology and bespoke options to be as popular here as they have been on the shores of St Tropez.

The 12.63m J Craft Torpedo has a sprint speed of 44 knots and is powered by two Volvo Penta IPS 500 engines and transmission system which allows incredible manoeuvring sideways and through 360 degrees using a joystick. It is designed and constructed by J Craft and can sleep four passengers and one crewmember. In the words of Global Brand Ambassador, Johan Attvik, “The J Craft Torpedo is much more than just a motor yacht – it’s a statement of personality and lifestyle. It’s an ideal yacht for the most discerning and demanding clientele.”

The J Craft Torpedo has been designed and developed to the highest and most complete level of engineering with uncompromising workmanship throughout. It has been created using the J Craft principles of beauty and elegance, using stateof- the-art technology while retaining a stunning, classic design.

Every J Craft Torpedo exudes extravagance with features such as silver cutlery designed by Prince Carl Philip of Sweden and a Nardi hand-carved steering wheel as seen on another design classic, the Ferrari 250 GTO. The thoughtfully individual details, as well as bespoke options means J Craft are creating a boating experience unlike any other.

The evolution of J Craft Torpedo has been a meticulous job. Only the finest materials and suppliers have been used, from the ethically sourced rainforest-free wood on the hull to the custom-tuned Volvo engines.

“The Torpedo pushes the limits of classic boat building. The workmanship is completely uncompromising; every single detail on the boat is second to none. We like to think of ourselves as the Rolls Royce of the seas,” said Johan Hallén, Chief Technical Officer at J Craft Boats.
