Yachts equipped with single or twin engines are known as motor yachts and they are excellent ocean cruisers. Capable of navigating the open seas through rough weather or stormy patches of choppy water, motor yachts are flexible and capable of prolonged stays out on the open sea. Typically 42 feet or longer, many of the most modern motor yachts are equipped with twin or quad pod drives. This allows for the captain to enjoy maximum control and maneuverability without sacrificing the quiet operation or superior form factor.
Motor yacht variations include flybridge, cockpit, pilothouse, and skylounge options. Alternators often run off the motor to provide vital electricity to creature comforts like air conditioning. Plumbing and refrigeration are also great benefits to motor yachts and made possible by the powerful twin or single motor.
