The Dauntless line of Explorer Yachts are based on the proven high efficiency full displacement
hull form created by Overing Yacht Design a recognized leader in this type of hull. The hull form
allows the Dauntless line to cruise using very small amounts of fuel and increased speeds for
a given RPM. This greatly reduces the overall operating cost of the vessel.
The design was created for worldwide travel and cruising in remote areas with little or no shore
support for long periods of time.
The hull is very heavily built, constructed entirely of vinlester resin, fiberglass cloth and mat and
the hull is solid laminate with no core.
The large volume created by the Overing design gives it the room to carry all of the equipment
and supplies needed for world cruising.
The volume also allows all of the DAUNTLESS line of yachts to have a very unique feature.
They have a full height deck forward below the normal lower accommodations deck. This area
is accessed via a door and stairs. This deck contains a nice laundry area, extra refrigerators
and freezers and a lot of dry goods storage.
Forward of the storage area is a pump room with the fresh water pumps, two water makers,
water heaters and water filters. Note there is a third water heater for the crew area.
The exceptional flybridge layout not only has comfortable seating and all of the amenities you
would expect but she also carries a larger then normal tender for a vessel of her size.
When compared against other vessels in their size range the Dauntless stands out as a long
range, serious cruising yacht with exceptional features that few can match
