COYOTE, launched in mid-June 2001 as scheduled, is the third in our new series of jetboats we began with RUMBLE. There has been tremendous interest in this design and each boat carries more refinements of this new look. Frank Montgomery came to us after carefully looking at many boats in this size range. He watched as we completed RUMBLE last summer, and when we started HALCYONE, he liked her new exterior look. One of the Montgomery's main criteria for the boat was a truly enclosed head and cockpit galley arrangement. COYOTE is fitted-out with a sink and two ice chests, one of which is DC powered on the aft side of the helm seat. The enclosed head has worked out quite nicely and offers more room than originally thought. We have lowered the windshield again and raked it further aft with 6'1" headroom on centerline, giving the boat the sleekest look yet. She is equipped with Espar heating system and windlass. The Yanmar 350 will provide 30 knots at top end and an easy 25-knot cruise.
Coyote has black topsides with a white boot stripe and darkk green bottom paint. The deck is white gel coat with high gloss varnished mahgony toerail, eyebrow, coaming, and handrails. The linen Sunbrella navy top covers the two forward bench seats. There is one Bomar hatch on the cabin and two port lights. There are two bench seats in the cockpit made of Formica with varnished mahgony trim. The back of the helm seat has a propane burner and built in cooler. There is also a cooler below the helm seat. The port bench has seats forward and aft. There is an engine box in center of the deck with a settee aft. There are beige cushions for all seats. The cockpit sole is raw teak in excellent condition. The interior has a large "V" berth made of Formica and varnished mahgony with black Sunbrella covered cushions. There are Ocean Frigast reading lights port and starboard. The ceiling strips are deep red varnished mahgony. The forward bulkhead door leading to the chain locker has a coyote and moon sihouette cut into it. There is a private head on starboard and upper and lower cabinets on port with a large surface for charts.
