Design: 124 Global Fish


Setzer-Blount

The 124 Global Fish has five staterooms, a formal dining room, a large salon, a sizable galley and additional dining spots in the sky lounge and on deck.


With some things, bigger is not always better, and naval architect Ward Setzer thinks sport-­fishing boats are among them. That’s why he stopped adding length overall when he hit 124 feet on the Global Fish.

“This boat still has to have Carolina flare and tumblehome at the transom,” he says. “Scaling up those proportions is like scaling up a Picnic Boat. It gets out of hand. I think we may have hit the magical balance here.”

Setzer conceived the 124-footer after working on 118-foot versions for clients in Australia and New Zealand, where there is demand for larger sport-fishing yachts that can chase big game across the South Pacific. When the global economy rebounded, he realized there may be U.S. clients too, and he reached out to Donald L. Blount and Associates for input.

“We compared notes, and they were getting the inquiries as well,” Setzer says. Motoryacht owners wanted to move down; sport-fish owners wanted to move up. A vision was born, with Blount doing naval architecture and Setzer drawing the rest.

The 124 Global Fish had a soft premiere via video at October’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, and Setzer says that, if she’s not in build by fall 2015, show-goers can expect a larger promotion. The target client may want to fish the boat, or he may simply use her as a luxury support vessel.

“It has the accommodations of something more like a 115-foot raised pilothouse,” Setzer says. “It’s a hybrid, in between.”

The KVH TracPhone Fleet One marine satellite communications antenna system is designed for yachts needing global satellite phone service plus basic satellite Internet access.

KVH has added the TracPhone Fleet One marine satellite communications antenna system to its other Inmarsat-based products. The new model is designed for yachts wanting global satellite phone service plus basic satellite Internet access.

The TracPhone Fleet One is designed to work everywhere at sea except the polar regions, giving yachts satellite phone service plus data speeds up to 100 Kbps, which usually is enough for email and limited Internet access, according to KVH.

TracPhone Fleet One also supports free “505” safety service, which can direct emergency calls to a rescue center.

“From the weekend sailor or small-fleet owner using Fleet One to the most sophisticated global commercial maritime operators taking advantage of our global mini-VSAT Broadband service, we offer a capability set and price point matched to customers’ needs,” Brent Bruun, KVH executive vice president for mobile broadband, stated in a press release.
