The lines of the FPB 130 have been drawn as a result of the experience and success of the rest of the FPB fleet. She will offer the seakeeping, passage speeds, and economy associated with her sister ships as well as benefiting from the use of solar array for the effective running of many of her systems.
A 5,000 NM range at 14 knots, ice class hull strength, rescue craft-like capsize resistance and recovery, 20kW solar array, hyper efficient heating cooling/ventilation, and the most comfortable ocean crossing ride make the FPB 130 a natural evolution from the four FPB designs that have preceded her. Engineered and built for maximum reliability and minimum maintenance, the FPB 130 reduces crew requirement while expanding where, when, and how comfortably you can go. The same sea kindly efficient hull form, attention to detail, and systems engineering that have made the FPB marque the talk of the waterfront, sets the bar even higher in this latest FPB offering.
Impressed with the efficiency of the 110-foot FPB 97’s 14.5+ knots from a pair of 300 HP diesels? Then you will love the FPB 130’s 16.5 knots from two 675 HP diesels and 14 knot cruising speed at 40% engine load.
The FPB 130 is the Real Deal, with the engineering, execution, and factors of safety that have made the FPBs 64, 78, and 97 the most reliable, and easily maintained, yachts money can buy. As with all FPBs, the FPB 130 is built with a double bottom for maximum structural security and massive tankage.
Shallow draft–1.65m /5.5ft–combined with the ability to dry out in areas of moderate tides, give the FPB 130 a unique cruising capability.
If you want to eliminate the obstacles of conventional yachting, and if you are tired of high maintenance vessels that require a small army for crew, the FPB 130 is the Real Deal.
