Blue Time, the new 75-footer from Delaware-based F&S Boatworks, is a single-minded, impeccably built custom boat designed and built solely to be a viable player on the fishing circuit.

Blue Time's Engine Room

Engine Room of the F&S 75

Blue Time has the kind of engine room that offers space, space and more space. There’s ample room for the 2,600 hp MTU mains, the pair of 32 kW Cummins Onan gensets, the M26000 Seakeeper gyro mounted in its own custom-made cradle on the centerline forward of the engines, and all of the pumps, water management and air-conditioning systems. Of course, it’s all brightly lit and faired and finished off as meticulously as is her flawless white Awlcraft 2000 painted hull.

The Performance of the F&S 75

Performance of the F&S 75

Running on her variable deadrise bottom with longitudinal steps, Blue Time is a spirited performer. Equiped with a pair of 2,600 hp M94 MTU diesels turning 38-by-56 Veem Interceptor five-blade wheels, she jumped quickly up out of the hole. She settled into an impressive 37-knot cruise speed at 2,000 rpm, a turn just over 40 knots at 2,150 rpm, and she hit almost 46 knots on the pins. — Adapted from Boat Review: F&S 75 Blue Time by Capt.
