Jet Tern Launches Artemis Motoryacht Line

New Artemis 46 Undergoes Seatrials in China

New Artemis 46 Undergoes Seatrials in China

Howard Chen’s Jet Tern Marine has launched a new planing motoryacht line called the “Artemis” with a 46-foot debut model.  Jet Tern Marine”s Zhu-Hai, China, shipyard is best known for its Selene line of displacement yachts.  According to the company, the new Artemis line was developed “in response to consistent and strong market demand for a high-performance yacht built by Jet Tern.”  The company said that, eventually, models from 36 to 66 feet will be developed

The Artemis 46 is a two-stateroom, two-head flybridge motoryacht, powered by twin 380hp diesels from Yanmar and is designed to cruise at a top speed of 23 knots; a performance level verified during sea trials of hull 4603.  The yacht has a beam of 14 feet 4 inches, a waterline length of 38 feet 11 inches, and a draft of 3 feet 9 inches.  The yacht has a fuel capacity of 400 U.S. gallons, with water and holding tanks of 100 and 50 U.S. gallons, respectively.

The Artemis 46 has walkaround decks, flybridge, and covered cockpit. A sliding door opens to the saloon with a contemporary design and built-in settees with seating for four around an adjustable table. The interior layout is open with the helm station to starboard and the galley down two steps to port.

Jet Tern says the first four yachts have already been sold in China.  The company press release downplays it somewhat, but I believe the Chinese market for this type of yacht may represent the best real growth potential in the near future.  China has embarked on a program of luxury marina building around the country and is deliberately fostering a yachting culture. I expect to see offerings like the Artemis, perhaps even more upscale, from some interesting sources over the next several months.  The base price of a new Artemis 46 is approximately $690,000, including freight and commissioning.
