Monarch is a luxurious, prestigious all-American motor yacht, offering Yacht Première an opportunity to publish a full portrait of the collaboration between Delta Marine, Cat Financial and Jonathan Quinn Barnet. This international magazine recently featured full portraits of some of the magnificent, exclusive yachts delivered to their
owners by Delta Marine, the famous US shipyard based in Seattle, Washington. Slojo, a semi-displacement motor yacht 156 feet / 47.5 metres in length, presented in issue 13 of Yacht Première, was followed by the elegant Katya, a full-displacement motor yacht 151 feet / 46 metres in length, presented in issue 15 of Yacht Première.
Following the recent deliveries of these vessels, it is now the turn of the spectacular new motor yacht Monarch, a semi-displacement motor yacht 151 feet / 46 metres in length, which was launched by Delta Marine in the spring of this year and is now the star of a full portrait in the current issue of Yacht Première. First of all, it should be emphasized that Monarch is a high-quality American motor yacht, the result of a collaboration between three US companies: Delta Marine, Cat Financial (Caterpillar Financial Services Corporation) and Jonathan Quinn Barnett.
These American companies have a background in creating very strong, very durable and highly reliable products.Over its long history as a shipyard, Delta Marine has built hundreds of vessels whose engine rooms house marine engines built by Caterpillar. In the case of the new motor yacht, Monarch, Delta Marine and Cat Financial joined forces and combined their technical and financial resources to complete what was initially simply known as Project Monarch.
For its part, Delta Marine successfully completed the construction of the new motor yacht at its facilities in Seattle, after the vessel’s construction began at Northern Marine’s facilities in Anacortes. For its part, Caterpillar Financial Services Corporation directly financed the complex operation, which was completely implemented and completed in the context of the “made entirely in the USA” excellence that the magnificent new Monarch perfectly represents.
We will now take a closer look at the technical and aesthetic characteristics of the new vessel. The 151-foot semi-displacement motor yacht Monarch has an impressive 30’ 9” beam, and features a balance of elegance and strength, form and function, performance, range and comfort. The flared hull design has a hard chine to deflect spray and a high sheer line that captures a full-beam arrangement forward of amidships. Her bulbous bow increases efficiency.
The vessel’s hull has a Trac 100-HP bow thruster, together with a Quantum Zero Speed stabilizer system configured with two pairs of lateral fins. [...]
