SATU 90' - First of a New Class

Satu News

Satu Marine releases the first Superyacht Sportfish at the 2013 Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show.  Rick Newhauser, Satu Marine, enthusiastically states, “Our vision was to create a high performance Sportfish Yacht combined with the luxury and attention to detail of a World Class Superyacht.”

Elite designers, engineers, big game anglers, and equipment manufacturers assembled to design this first Superyacht Sportfish.  Yachting Developments, a builder with multiple Superyacht of the Year awards, delivered the attention to detail to make Satu 90’ a Superyacht Sportfish.

Beneath her beautiful lines and classic styling, Satu 90’ has speed, range, maneuverability to turn on a dime, and the power to back down fast when needed.  She has top end speed in excess of 33 knots, and will cruise effortlessly at 30 knots.  With over 2600 nautical mile range, she is designed to access in comfort remote untapped international fishing grounds.  Her high speed planing hull provides smooth, fast, dry travel.

Satu NewsSatu 90 is magnificently powered by two 16V 2400hp MTU engines.  Two 58K CAT Generators provide plenty of redundant power to drive all systems.  Heinen & Hopman designed and built state-of-the-art refrigeration and mechanical systems to handle the most extreme conditions.

All systems on board are superyacht quality, and most are redundant to ensure uninterrupted performance and safety. 

World class sound design provides personal comfort whether travelling the high seas or on the hook in a remote bay.

Satu NewsOpen flybridge design provides excellent visibility as well as comfortable space for outdoor dining and relaxing.  The heart of the flybridge helm is SAM Electronics top-of-the-line Integrated Navigation and Command System and MTU Integrated Ship Monitoring Systems.  Data is displayed on three 19-inch Hatteland Monitors with custom control panels.

World Class Anglers designed the cockpit.  The International Fighting Chair articulating pedestal provides rod tip clearance while fighting a world record marlin, and the transom door is large enough to bring in a “grander.”  Unrivalled visibility of both water and cockpit, plus all major systems to operate Satu are at your fingertips.  The tower was expertly designed, manufactured and built by Bausch American Towers to enhance the ultimate fishing experience.

Timber of a single Japanese Ash tree defines the elegant yet clean and contemporary interior.  The galley has a spacious open design with a perfectly seamless, single-piece brushed stainless countertop.  Four cabins are light, spacious, quiet retreats.  Beautiful timbers, natural fabrics, and open design invite you in.  Attention to the finest detail is the emerging theme in the Satu 90.

Visit Satu 90 at the 2013 Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show, Ramp 7, North Cocktail Barge, Slip SF-2, February 14-18.
