68′ 2014 HAL WHITACRE DESIGNED
As a proven offshore performer with very economical operating costs, she is an excellent purchase opportunity for the adventurous and knowledgeable boater. Everyone who steps on board is impressed by her quality finishing but then quickly amazed with the engineered finish that makes her the rugged go anywhere vessel – a must-see!
The owner of this vessel was looking for something special in a boat and turned to Hal Whitacre, a well-known Naval Architect. He specializes in designing custom power boats with a coast guard cutter shape. An amazing designer specific to offshore hull design, with a great understanding of engineering requirements to achieve optimum efficiency, how to make a vessel that is strong and safe, but not forgetting what is needed for comfort while out exploring – Mr. Whitacre hired the expert team from Yachtsmiths International located in Dartmouth NS, the winners of the “Export Achievement Award” to build and finish this grand design. The cutter design has a reputation of being undeniably reliable in heavy seas and its low LDL displacement with an aluminum hull makes it an economical and very efficient vessel. ROWDAY’O has aptly demonstrated these qualities for her current owner on several occasions.
ROWDAY’O boasts long-range capability with large onboard storage capacity for fuel, water and food. The internal Seakeeper ensures optimum stabilization and the robust full-length keel provides excellent tracking as well as added prop protection when needed. The extra-thick aluminum sheeting used in the hull makes ROWDAY’O a strong boat you can confidently take anywhere.
This extremely rugged hull is supplemented with an interior that shouts style and comfort. The interior is gorgeous! With its open-concept layout, beautiful hardwood finishes, large windows and ample headroom throughout. Three staterooms, two heads, an efficient galley, a lovely salon, a well-appointed wheelhouse and an open-air flybridge are perfect for a couple’s retreat, a family get-away or an adventure of a lifetime.
Let’s make your dreams a reality – you owe it to yourself to see ROWDAY’O.

This vessel was built inside and out by the expert team from Yachtsmiths International, in Dartmouth NS (winners of the Export Achievement Award)
RowdayO displaces per inch of incremental displacement around 7,000 lbs. 5 tons of incremental weight will put her down around an inch and a half.
For a lot of reasons, she loves 9.5/10 kts. Get her up to 18-20 knots and she is as smooth as she gets, then max out 22 knots
She doesn’t really start to make a wake till 8 knots
Just click engines in gear with clean hull and you are 5.5/6 knots. Racing sailboats at 600 rpm
When you are whale watching in 3/5 foot chop and the Seakeeper gyro is on, you only go up and down. Everyone else has clients on board their boats being tossed around while RowDay-O keeps herself stable
A beautiful vessel where folks will hale you on radio to compliment looks. One-of-kind!
The interior is completely custom designed and custom finished. The upper end quality of the wood finishing was exactly what they wanted. This includes the solid 3/4″ Jatoba/Maple flooring, gorgeous cherry walls, the bended radius finishing, solid cherry wood doors everywhere and the exceptional S/S hardware throughout. This is all hand built, one room at a time to perfectly fit the wood beautifully into place.

Experienced pilot, the owner created the navigation/electronic package to meet his high standards. The layout of the helm station was very important.
Using the T theory, all your instruments are in front of you, easy to scan at a glance and visually see what your vessel is doing underway. A very clean and well laid-out helm!
