New Model: Cutwater 30

In today's market Cutwater and its parent brand Fluid Systems are a red herring for building small medium sized boats with big appeal. This mean that its 26 to thirty feet Cutwater models are made to feel large to the owner, and the surprise in all this is that they still abide by US trailer boat rules. The Cutwater 30 apart an intelligent accommodation plan of sleeping four berths in two cabins, plus two in the convertible dinette is full of practical features.  See extending bench seats, and flip over settee in the aft cockpit. The Cutwater 30 also impresses for other seamanship friendly features, which usually escape to the first time inexperienced buyer, like a not so small fuel tank of 681 liters, and water capacity of 302 liters. The Cutwater 30 is such a good all rounder that if it had also a two engine choice it would steal customers from boats being one meter bigger.
