Full Details


 A softly rounded “fishing boat” stern, swept sheerline and flared bow mark a Monk classic in any anchorage. The Royal Passagemaker is based on the tried and proven “Seamaster” hull form designed by Edwin Monk Sr. with structural refinements by Victorian Naval Architect Gregory C. Marshall. The 57’ was the first yacht built by Park Isle from the “Seamaster” molds, conceived originally as M/Y “Fine Romance”. Engineered for the harsh, unpredictable conditions of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. 

Below the waterline of the vessel including the bulbous bow is constructed of solid fiberglass. The hull sides, decks, and cabin structures are vacuum infused with vinylester resin and unidirectional glass fibers. Foam coring, where used is ATC corecell triple cut within infused laminates. Generous overlaps at all edges of material runs, with the stem and keel of the vessel having double hull laminates applied. Vinylester resin is used for vacuum infusion, eliminating the risk of osmosis blistering. The deck and house cabin structures are cored with high-density foam, providing rigidity as well as insulation. 

A heavy-duty vinyl rub rail mounted on a molded fiberglass guard. Handrails are 1 ¼ “ welded stainless steel. The cap rail is solid brushed stainless steel, and there are no exterior wood finishes on the vessel. A 3” stainless steel shaft with a 4-blade propeller are protected by a rudder shoe. The rudder and rudder post are solid reinforced stainless steel. Bronze underwater through hull fittings and seacocks.
