The Slane 62 includes all the essentials you would expect of Carolina styling. The high, well-raked bow meets the sweeping sheer that breaks at the aft end of the house, and the fully-functional flying bridge offers perfect sightlines. The cockpit is one of the largest in its class and features a removable mezzanine. The Slane 62 also boasts 30-percent larger accommodations that include four spacious staterooms and three heads, along with a salon and galley offered in a choice of layouts and finished to the owner’s specifications. “The 62 will be one of the most fuel-efficient sportfishing boats in its class ever built,” said Tom Slane, founder and president of Slane Marine. “The twin Volvo Penta D-13 diesels and IPS3 pod drives, when mated with the 62’s optimized Carolina hull form, will result in fuel savings of up to 52 percent, compared with a traditional inboard.”
