The Trawler yacht 520 is a full displacement, ballasted, World girdling trawler yacht available in a walk-around saloon version. Designed with a raised pilothouse and Portuguese bridge, the TY 520 embodies the requirements of a proper passage making trawler yacht.
The TY 520 has the space available to provide accommodation for three couples all the facilities expected by today’s cruising yachtsman. The engine room of the TY 520 has standing headroom and more than sufficient space to accommodate the machinery requirements of today’s cruising motor yacht.
The TY 520’s standard lower deck arrangement features a forward master stateroom with an en-suite head. The port and starboard guest staterooms have upper and lower berths along with ample storage space. All the staterooms have easy access to the lower deck head and shower.
As with all the Bruce Roberts Kits, alternate arrangements can be designed within the steel bulkheads, either by us, or by you as you build YOUR boat. One alternate lower deck arrangement for the TY 520 could include full width master stateroom and en-suite head. It could also include a forward guest stateroom with upper and lower berths. There is ample space to accommodate both a tub and shower.
Her hull form incorporates Bruce Roberts Design’s latest thinking on passage making trawler yachts: A single chine hull o reduce rolling, a higher prismatic coefficient to allow increased speeds when required, bilge fins which can be combined with active fins to dramatically reduce rolling, and an optional bulbous bow to further reduce pitching. Similar to our successful TY 430, the hull of the TY 520 trawler yacht has an integrated spray flat in her hull to knock down spray and to lift the bow in head seas or when running down swell. A full keel and a balanced rudder complete her underbody.
Several machinery options are available for the TY 520. The standard drawings for the boat show a single screw machinery arrangement, but she could be adapted to a twin screw arrangement. The boat can be fitted with either a straight drive or a V drive, and can use a wet or dry exhaust system. Engineering drawings for some of these machinery options are provided with the kit or cutting files. Additional machinery options will be added as owners request the. The machinery drawings include sample list of equipment to begin your machinery systems planning.
As with all of Bruce Roberts Design’s trawler yachts the TY 520 is structurally designed to meet or exceed ABS’s requirements for motor pleasure yachts/ Her stability meets or exceeds the US Coast Guard requirement for an offshore passenger vessel. She is available as CNC cutting files or delivered as a steel or aluminum pre-cut package.
