2017 Safehaven Marine XSV 17

Road Town

$940,500

Horizon Yacht Sales is pleased to present you ‘Thunder Child.’ A 2017 Barracuda XSV 17 designed & built by Safehaven Marine.

If you are looking for a boat that is capable of going fast for long distances, in any weather, this semi-custom design from Safehaven Marine may be the ultimate answer. Cruising at 45mph, topping out at 64 mph, Thunder Child is adaptable across a range of applications; a mega yacht tender, an offshore support vessel, a patrol boat, offshore search, and rescue….this boat has an enviable track record that attests to her pedigree. 

The XSV 17 is a sophisticated hull design, driven by twin C12.9 Caterpillar turbocharged, supercharged, and intercooler engines with heavily upgraded Meta Marine Surface drives. In calm to moderate sea states, she is a planing hull, but when conditions deteriorate, she can shift to wave-piercing mode with a very fine entry and a deep V deadrise at the transom minimizing pitch, yaw, and pounding. Twin chines afford excellent dynamic and static stability. Built with advanced lightweight Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP), enables the XSV 17 to survive in sea state 8, when her proven self-righting capability might be called upon.

The XSV 17 design was focused on development for naval and law enforcement applications, so she benefits from a low RCS (radar cross-section), due to her hull and deck design, as well as her outfitting.

Thunder Child has six shock mitigation seats for extreme condition comfort and a further four seats for moderate conditions. With a head and shower, and accommodation forward and air-conditioning at a total of 50,000 BTU. The helm boasts three large 15” Garmin GPSs displays with HD radar, VHF, AIS, FLIR Thermal /night vision, and an onboard CCTV monitoring system for engines and equipment.

In 2017 Thunder Child made history and became the world record holder for the fastest circumnavigation of Ireland via Rockall. Thunder Child covered 1347 miles to circumnavigate Ireland, counterclockwise in just over 34 hours, at an average speed of 39mph. With 1320 gallons of fuel, giving a range of up to 750nm, she only had to refuel twice en-route.

Thunder Child is professionally maintained and is located in the British Virgin Islands.
