Cormorant Yachts, the new builder in Gdansk, Poland, is working on the COR710, a 71-foot cruising yacht with a nod to Down East lobster boat styling but with an oversized aft deck that would be totally at home in either the Med or the Bahamas.
This new Cormorant joins a fleet stretching from 55 feet to 88 feet and is built for long-range cruising. With twin 1,361-hp MTU diesels, it has a top speed of about 30 knots, but if you dial back to 7 knots it will have a range of about 2,700 nm.
The COR710 carries a low profile and the salon is defined by a low wraparound windshield. The yacht also has more than its share of teak, with wide teak side decks and a wide-open teak aft deck.
For family cruising, it has three staterooms, all with en suite heads, on the lower accommodations deck, where there also is a galley and a day head at the foot of the stairs. A crew quarter, holding two, opens to the engine room.
The foredeck has two large sun pads for lounging, but it’s the aft deck that draws attention. A massive sun pad is on top of the garage, while forward to starboard is a curved seating area; a wet bar is to port. The garage under the sun pad can hold a 17-foot tender, and the swim platform lowers to access water sports.
Under the hardtop (with an opening sun roof), a large sofa is on the starboard side, with a dining table; a smaller seating area is to port. The helm station is forward to starboard, with seating for two.
Below, the master stateroom is amidships, with a sofa to port and the large head is to starboard. The VIP stateroom is in the bow, with a walkaround bed, while a small stateroom is aft a bit, opposite the galley; it also can be configured as a study or an office.
