True to form, Yamarin’s smallest boat follows in the footsteps of its bigger siblings. Greg Copp reports..
With the company being renowned for maintaining standards across their range regardless of size, Yamarin’s smaller models echo the innovation and quality of their larger siblings. The new 59 BR is a perfect example, as this 6m boat bristles with behind-the-scenes build quality, and every inch of space is put to good use.
Sister to the Yamarin 59 SC (asymmetrical side-console version), the 59 BR has been tailored slightly differently. It is a conventional sports bowrider with a full-width windscreen centred on a windscreen gate for forward access. This may not provide such easy deck movement as the SC version, but the extra weather protection enjoyed by the 59 BR will make it a popular choice. Spacious sofas at the bow and stern provide plenty of lounging space, while the helm seats can be rotated, turning the cockpit into a social area for five. An innovative aspect of this area is the fact that the aft sofa can be easily folded flat, turning it into a sunbed that opens to the bathing platform.
The bathing platform is full beam and flat without thresholds, making it easy to board from either side. This platform wraps around a large splash well, which can be surrounded by the optional waterskiing arch, also serving as a very useful handrail. Beneath the swimming platform on the port side is a stowage compartment for lines, and on the starboard side, the fuel filler and fuel filter are conveniently located in the same manner. Crucial for any sports boat, there is a concealed bathing ladder on the starboard side.
Good weather protection at the helm.
Neatly lined lockers throughout.
Every locker hatch has a gas strut.
Access at the bow is facilitated by tall handrails on both sides and a wide bow step, making it is easy to board and disembark from a tall dockside. There is also storage space under the step for stowing mooring lines, which can be reached without having to open the step. The entire deck area and all walkways are covered by Soft-Deck synthetic teak as standard. Stowage space can be found under both the rear sofa and the bow seats. All of these stowage spaces are neatly lined and accessed by gas strut-supported hatches. Additional storage space can be found forward of each helm seat, courtesy of doors opening into the cavities behind the dash areas for the helmsman and navigator.
Anchor/warp storage on the port side.
The 59 BR comes standard with a Yamarin Q smart display with Navionics charts, which also includes a radio, which can stream music from your smartphone. Optional extras include a fish finder, and a remote control to operate the smart display and adjust the volume. Standard features on the smart display include a Q Guard anti-theft service – enabling owners to monitor the location of their boat remotely. A factory-fitted accessory kit extends Q Guard’s functions to include battery, bilge and engine status. Standard equipment includes hydraulic steering as well as the Yamaha Y-COP immobiliser. Two optional equipment packages are available: the Comfort Edition, which includes an aft canopy and a windshield wiper, and the Premium Edition, which includes an aft canopy, windshield wiper, console cover, table, waterskiing arch and an entertainment package, to include speakers and an amplifier. Price to be announced through UK dealers soon.
