New Model: Cutwater 26

What an innovative project is this, thanks to big boat thinking in a small package. Cutwater 26 comes from the Fluid Motion LLC Group who already produce the Ranger Tugs line, and here with this new brand challenge the market thanks to a clever design above but also below the water line featuring an unedited hull shape which should offer good economy and sea handling.  The comfort of the Cutwater 26 is impressive for its size, as is that of its standard equipment and price offering.  This boat is also trailer able thanks to its beam that is for the US limit of eight feet and a half.  Accommodation also is impressive and extremely comfortable offering a total of six berths.  Double convertible Vee shape bed below to fore, midships twin, and a convertible settee on the main deck.  The hull of the Cutwater 26 is an innovative stepped with keel semi displacement shape.  Power is from a single diesel Yanmar 180hp engine which delivers new meaning to term economic.
