Already in construction for potential buyers to inspect and explore is a Fulton 110+ Motor yacht. Our first yacht has already been sold to a European buyer and the company is close to a deal for a second. The first project stand half-finished in the boatyard, their red steel hulls and dull gray aluminum cabins still in need of outfitting and paint. Fulton is trying to sell on price, competing with the Italian, European shipbuilders that dominate the luxury boat trade. Fulton is entering the yacht market with a lot of help from Holland. Prominent European designers drew up the blueprints for Fulton's yachts. Fulton is assembling the hull from imported steel plates, and plans to do the same with more to come. The plates are forged in the Netherlands, a big European steel maker. Most important, Fulton has cheap labor, but specially skilled workers, like welders certified to Lloyd's marine standards, considered the best in the world.
A Brief Overview on the Status of the Project
 

1 - The Type of Yacht

1-1) The “Fulton 110” is a 34 meter displacement motor yacht with steel hull and Aluminum superstructure.
She is designed with a large body volume and full beam superstructure to achieve a maximum of interior cabin space.

1-2) The speed is moderate (12 to 13 knots) as a consequence of the displacement but in return provides the highest level of comfort with regards to noise, vibration and ship movements.

1-3) The yacht is designed following the highest level of rules and regulation as well as reaching the top quality level for this type of vessel.

1-4) This type of yacht represents the top level of yacht building for the international market.

2 - The Designer

2-1) The “VRIPACK B.V.” company is based in Sneek Netherlands and is a long-term established yacht design company known for very solid engineering and high end Dutch type of yacht design. They feature a growing market success and employ currently more than 90 designers and engineers. Their yachts are built in Europe, United States, Russia, China, Turkey and other places.

3 - The Building Concept

3-1) The original idea was to build a European designed, high quality motor yacht for the international market; delivered from Europe and assembled in IRAN.

3-2) High - end equipment together with qualified but low cost energy & labor should in principle generate a competitive product for world market.

4 - The Status of the Project

4-1) The hull and the Superstructure are almost finished and sit on QESHM Island in the covert construction hull.

4-2) The metal work was executed in a professional way and good quality.  The respective Lloyds pre-certification was achieved.

             
                 

5 - Brief over View of the Technical Specifications

5-1) The design

The design of the Yacht as drawn in the General Arrangement Plan is executed by Vripack Yachting International Naval Architects B.V. The Netherlands.

5-2) Operational Profile

It is envisaged that the Yacht will be cruising for long periods of time with Owner and guests on board, predominantly in warm and tropical waters.
It is estimated that the main engines will run approximately 1000 hours per year at 90% load.

5-3) Expected Quality of the Finished Product & Comfort At Sea

The Yacht shall be designed and built to the luxury Yacht standard for the interior as well the exterior in all respects, not only surface finishes.
It is intended that the Yacht provides a high level of comfort in all sea conditions and that it shall be able to be put to sea safely on an even keel under the various loading conditions.

5-4) Propulsion System

It is envisaged that the Yacht be fitted with a twin-screw propulsion arrangement consisting of two four stroked turbo charged, after cooled marine diesel engines. Preliminary calculations indicate a total brake power requirement of approximately 708 BKW (950 BHP) to achieve the specified performance. Preliminary calculations indicate that two propellers of approximately 1220 mm diameter turning at 445.5 RPM (maximum tip speed 28.46 m/sec) can absorb the delivered power. Propellers are to be manufactured in Ni-Al-Bronze and to be of a low noise design with skewed blades.

5-5) Speed & Range

Sustained cruising speed shall not be less than 12.0 knots at 90% maximum continuous rating at half load displacement at sea trial conditions. The range of the Yacht shall be 5.000 nautical miles with 10% consumable left on arrival. This is based on an average speed of 10 knots including a 15 % weather allowance. (Resistance augmentation)

5-6) Bow Thruster

One 75 hp (56 kW) bow thruster, make Cramm, type V2-18H, dual prop counter rotating, existing of:

Stainless steel drive unit with stainless steel propeller and stainless steel protection ring around propeller, driven by the 140 cc hydraulic plunger motors. Control panel with proportional joystick mounted in steering station and both wing stations. Matching electronics built-in Rittal enclosure.

5-7) Stabilizer System

A complete stabilizer system, Naiad-Koop, model NK 353, will be installed.

Two fin blades, 1.49 m2 of composite fiberglass with NACA profile and tapered shaft insert. Two fin actuator units for 2 x 32° effective fin angle with two 2” hydraulic cylinders and 3.5” high-tensile stainless steel shaft. Complete with splash-water proof fin angle sensor and emergency centering bolts. Two steel thru-hull welding bushing with flange to fit the fin actuator unit. Two aluminum manifold blocks with NG10 electro-hydraulic servo valve, double pilot operated check valve and a bypass valve for emergency centering. Completely wired and assembled on a mounting bracket with a high-pressure filter with visual and electrical clogging signaling and a shut-off valve.Two check valves to be fitted in the pressure line. One DATUM sensor package for roll rate, roll angle and roll acceleration.
