Derecktor Shipyard 1993
Derecktor Shipyards built the 112-foot motor yacht MitSeah in aluminum, giving her a top speed of 29 knots—a notable achievement in high-speed cruising among larger motoryachts at the time.
Sparkman & Stephens chief designer Bill Langan gave MitSeah a unique profile, as a way for her to stand out in the harbor among other motoryachts of her size. A noteworthy engineering innovation aboard MitSeah was the special recesses built into her hull to accommodate five-bladed propellers while maintaining the owner’s shallow-draft requirement. Experts called the Sparkman & Stephens solution not only efficient, but also as quiet as a water-jet system of the same vintage.
