An Outboard Powered Recreational Yacht

August 25, 2020


Striking, bold, and thoroughly modern, the 70 Island concept by DLBA offers a completely new experience in an outboard powered recreational yacht. Providing an evolutionary step in the development of outboard powered vessels, this is a true yacht, with high-end furnishings and luxury accommodation, which showcases the latest capability and benefits of outboard propulsion

Combining a laid back island experience with the excitement of high performance well in excess of 40 knots, the 70 Island offers expansive exterior spaces with an inviting layout of combined indoor and outdoor living. Outboard propulsion creates widely-customizable powering and performance options while allowing for more interior space for passengers taking a break from the sun.

The dual transformer aft beach deck system provides easy access for two tenders along with plenty of room for additional toy storage. The large beach deck with integrated fold-down bulwarks creates a vast recreational space when the tenders deploy via an automated system with the push of a button. The beach deck is easily configurable for water ingress or relaxation with direct access to the glassed-in lower solarium. A dinette on the upper deck easily converts into a pleasant sunbathing spot under the fully retractable

sunroof.  All glass tint is LCD adjustable and controlled through mobile devices. Comfortable areas aft, near the helm, and forward also allow for people to spread out while kicking back.

This yacht reimagines the idea of outboard propulsion while providing the best of both worlds; the fit and finish of a yacht with the simplicity and flexibility of outboard motors.
