She is also capable of carrying up to 9 tripulación a bordo para asegurar una experiencia relajada yate de lujo.

Construction & Dimensiones
Khalilah features a full displacement carbon fibre hull and carbon fibre superstructure, with teak decks. She was built to DNV (Det Norske Veritas) classification society rules.

Performance
Powered by 2 MTU (16En 2000 M94) 2,600hp diesel engines Motor yacht Khalilah is capable of a top speed of 30 nudos, and comfortably cruises at 28 nudos. With her 40,000 fuel tanks she has a maximum range of 1,500 nautical miles at 24 nudos. Her water tanks store around 6,000 of fresh water.

Timur Mohamed, owner of the iconic American boatbuilder Palmer Johnson (PJ) has produced the 49 metre SuperSport Khalilah.

Design courtesy of a designer called Berkeley March, a finalist in Boat International’s 2008 Young Designer of the Year awards, who had recently started working for Palmer Johnson.

Creating space

The aft deck’s size – 110 square metres – is closer to the space you’d expect on a multihull. Compounding the effect of that 11 metre beam, and the almost 12 metres from the transom to the saloon door, is the extensive use of glass, which opens up views everywhere you look. Seated or sprawled on the large outside banquette, or lying on enormous sunpads, you still enjoy uninterrupted views. Shapely railings support glass panels that break the wind effectively but don’t spoil the view.

More glass is inset in the carbon supports framing the main deck’s outdoor dining area, with the largest panes found forward at the main saloon level. “They are the biggest glass panels aside from Steve Jobs’s boat [Venus],” says Mohamed.

Each panel framing the superstructure at the saloon’s level measures 6.6 by 2.2 metres. Palmer Johnson worked with New Zealand glass specialist Glasshape, which made and installed the specially formulated DuraShield Marine Glass. Each window panel comprises two layers of laminated glass, with an interlayer of resin that helps refract heat. One-inch thick (26mm), each panel weighs more than one tonne. “They are the largest windows installed on a superyacht in the United States,” says Andrew Forrest, who heads the Glasshape North America office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Speed ability

Thanks to the slender naval architecture and carbon composite construction (which represents a weight saving of about 20 tonnes according to PJ’s own estimation), the SuperSport 48 requires relatively modest power to reach her noteworthy top speed of 32 nudos. The engines are twin 16V MTU diesel M94s from the 2000 series, with a maximum 5,200hp output. Como resultado, total consumption at top speed is about 1,000 litres per hour. Consumption, says the captain who took the yacht from Wisconsin to Florida via Montreal, goes down significantly with speed. With an extra tank extending capacity up to 41,600 litros, and a consumption of 159 litres per hour, the yacht has transatlantic range at about 15 nudos.

To build Khalilah entirely in carbon composite, Palmer Johnson selected a Norwegian shipyard well-versed in the material. Brødrene Aa, which specialises in fast ferries, built the first DNV-approved vessel in GRP sandwich panels in the 1970s and a few well-known yachts marketed under the Norship name, incluyendo el 36.5 metre Moonraker, once the world’s fastest yacht, in the early 1990s.

The assembled hull and superstructure, with engines and drives in place, made their way from Norway to Wisconsin in late 2013, and the PJ craftsmen installed the mechanics, electrónica, a complex network of lights and built the custom interior to the owner’s requirements.

Interior comfort

This owner wanted a simple but playful interior. A spiral of LED lights inset in the ceiling above the entrance foyer, a glass octopus, and low-lying colourful seats on top of wide-beam parquet flooring set the tone. But it is not long before the eyes wander towards the floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the saloon.

PJ’s standard layout calls for a larger main saloon, a galley down and a palatial master suite sprawling full-beam forward on the main deck. Khalilah has a different layout, according to her owner’s wishes. The galley, a contemporary and alluring space with windows, stainless steel appliances and lacquered orange cabinets, looks as though it came from a Boffi showroom but was designed and built in-house. It was installed on the main deck at the owner’s request. Two similar-sized owner’s suites occupy the space forward, benefiting from great views through vertical portholes.

The guest cabins, including a comfortable VIP, are on the lower deck. Each has a different colour scheme, highly personalised décor and beautiful marble and colourful mosaics in the showers. The crew cabins (four twins and one single for the captain) are forward of a pleasant crew mess. A clever use of skylights allows light to stream belowdecks and the space is both practical and comfortable.

Gold rush

The owner of Khalilah clearly has a thing for gold, which is found at the heart of the engine room as a custom finish on the two MTU engine blocks. Gold suggests glamour and confidence but also courage and passion. It took all of that to imagine and build the first SuperSport. Now let’s hope the golden Khalilah will also mean prosperity for this forward-thinking US yacht builder.
