Yacht designer Doug Zurn is best known for Billy Joel’s muscular Vendetta, a fresh take on a classic New England boat design that created its own niche. Zurn has kept at the forefront of Downeast design with yachts for MJM, New England Boatworks, and Shelter Island Boatworks, along with many standout custom projects. The 63-foot Lynx Commuter could be one of his finest designs, a broad-shouldered, straight-edged Downeast-ish yacht with a large cockpit and center walkway, connected to a generous area forward beneath the hardtop. The original Lynx 63 was built as a custom tender for a much larger yacht, arguably the best weekend commuter ever. The Dutch builder is offering the same Zurn design, with the owner’s choice of options for interior and exterior layouts. As it stands, Zurn’s concept is a two-stateroom design, with a main aft stateroom that includes a large en suite with private shower, and the second VIP cabin in the bow. The large saloon is one of two possible locations for a soiree. The master suite has furniture that folds out to create the bed, so the area can be used as a second social area. The boat is currently designed to hold two owners, two crew, and 15 best friends for sunset cruises or beach parties. Despite its prowess as a people carrier, the Lynx Commuter is fast and powerful: Twin 1,900 hp Caterpillar engines give it a top-end speed of 45 knots.
