River and Road
Centennial Yachts is a small family run business, dedicated to the production of rugged, self sufficient small yachts for both River and Road. Our boat yard is located on the St Johns river, just north of Palatka Florida. Though our primarily focus and expertise is on the design and custom crafting of river boats, Centennial yachts is currently building our first road yacht, "Shachagra" for personnal use.
Shachagra is our prototype RV. Following fruitless months of searching for an RV appropriate for an extended tour through Europe and Eurasia, we decided to take our boatbuilding skills on the road.
Shachagra will be our home from June 2010 until September 2011, while our family of five travels through rugged country with few available services. Our tour will include:UK, France, Germany, Croatia, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Armenia, Georgia, Bulgaria, Romania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden and Norway.
She will be built on an International 7500 4X6 chassis, will stand 12.5 feet tall, 8 feet wide and 33 feet long. Shachagra will weigh in at 34,000 pounds, carry enough diesel for a 2000 mile trek, and over 300 gallons of drinking water. Powered by solar electric and diesel fuel, you'll only see her in an RV park if we want to use the pool!
