With a LOA of 72, the latest offering from Zeelander combines everything that makes a classic 25’ Northeastern dayboat so delightful to behold and then expands it into a “pocket superyacht” that could well be the ultimate waterfront residence. The Z72 has more curves than Sofia Vergara, producing a profile that draws admiring glances whether alongside the dock or carving a wake across Biscayne Bay. The yacht’s sensually-flared hull and sloping transom give it a distinctive profile. A close inspection reveals a vast amount of real estate below deck. Three staterooms, each with its own head, a well-equipped galley, an open-air salon and a magnificent helm provide ample personal space for guests and the owner. Notable features include the side-entry garage, sized to house a 16’ RIB tender and a brace of PWC, and the extending swim platform, which becomes a virtual “teak beach” complete with a sun-shielding cabana. Powered by three Volvo Penta 1,000 h.p. turbodiesels, the Z72 goes as good as it looks, with a top speed of 40 knots; Zeelander.com.
