New Model: Cutwater 28

Cutwater by Fluid Motion presents its second model, with the 28 flagship.  The bigger Cutwater is similar to the smaller 26 sister PowerYacht showed a couple weeks ago, with everything being that little bit extra spacious.  Non the less the 28 although measuring 32 feet over all is indeed a trailer boat.  But this is not done to sacrifice what is a very comfortable all year use cruising boat, which has a lot of substance and thinking going into its design. Meaning that just as the smaller 26, the Cutwater 28 is a boat for cruising at sea.  The 28 features the unique Cutwater hull which is a planing hull with keel, and a step.  Accommodation sleeps four in two areas, plus a convertible extra berth in a saloon, plus a galley on the main deck, and a separate shower head.  The aft cockpit is where the 28 feels more spacious to the 26. For easy manoeuvring bow and stern thruster are standard, with extra comforts as 2.7 kw generator being optional.  Power is from a single Yanmar 260hp, which should give about 30 knots of top speed.
