USA built steel expedition yacht for sale as a world explorer or as a USA Charter vessel. This yacht is documented in the USA and does not require an offshore delivery.

"Heaven's Gate" won the peoples choice award at the 2010 San Diego Yacht Show.  Since then she has travelled thousands of miles in unprotected waters. She just finished traveling from La Paz through the Panama Canal and then on to Florida. She was built to exceed ABS Commercial Standards and also has an interior water tight door added to pass a damage stability test.

Heavens Gate has been inclined tested and certified by Naval Architect Bruce Culver to carry 10,000 pounds of toys on the Boat Deck. She has a commercial tough exterior with large beautiful stainless double and triple railing systems and a minimum of exterior wood for easy maintainance.

This is a "whaleback" design which means no open forward decks to fill with green water when the seas get really bad. She has weathered many storms and hurricanes and she never makes you feel unsafe. She has a 26 foot beam with a hard chine allowing her to operate for 2 years before even turning on the stabilzers.


THE HULL:
It starts at the bottom of the boat with a 110 pound keel that separates you from the rocks.....12 by 12 by 1 1/4 inch steel I beam. Notice the skegs under our propellers, 2 1/2 solid steel that protects the props and supports the rudders. On most boats the props are totally exposed and logs can wipe them out not to mention bumping into a rock! We turn 58 inch props as slow as possible.....that's the equation for less fuel burned. We typically use 15 gallons per hour running two engines and a generator....not bad for a 175 ton Expedition Yacht.

The Hulls are built to exceed commercial class ABS ratings....They can easily plow through light ice conditions with their 1 inch thick stem piece and 3/8 thick steel bottoms.....look at the framing of these boats....48 inch centered frames with longitudinals every 12 inches.....just like the fishing boats we used to build. The pilot house and rigging is all aluminum to keep the center of gravity low on the vessel. The hull passes a damage stability test and has been incline tested to carry 10,000 pounds of toys on the boat deck. The deck crane is a telescoping 10,000 pound capacity with a hand held remote control.

ANCHORING SYSTEM:
Heavens Gate has a 9 inch Hydraulic Bow and Stern thruster for easy docking... with steel guards for protection from logs. We have a bow and stern anchor winch....not a Capstan and chain locker. The secret to anchoring is in the layering of the chain. We start with a 350 pound anchor hooked to 90 feet of galvanized chain followed by 200 feet of 1/2 inch high tensile chain followed by 300 feet of steel cable. This can only be done on a drum....it is faster and safer than a capstan. With the long scope and the heavy chain hooked to the anchor you will hold fast even in the worst conditions.

Heaens Gate is a true Long Range Expedition Yacht made to the its' owner, family and guests to the ends of the earth in comfort.
