Project: Clipper 350 Hudson Bay

Down under Clipper Motor Yachts present the baby of the new generation of Hudson Bay pleasure cruisers, the 350 which is currently in-build at the company's yard in China and due to hit Australian shores before Christmas.  Clipper Motor Yachts General Manager, Brett Thurley, said the sleek down East lobster boat inspired sedan cruiser is superbly designed with a modern flair.  The first Hudson Bay 350 will be powered by a Volvo 260hp shaft drive diesel engine giving her a cruise speed of approximately 14 knots.  The Hudson Bay 350 will have a lower deck layout with an owner's cabin with a queen bed forward, hanging lockers and extra storage. A clever bathroom design allows for a separate stand up shower with fixed screen door and separate vanity cabin to starboard while a large electric toilet , sink and vanity cabin is to port. The main deck will feature the galley located on the starboard side of the saloon along with a highly functional double, forward facing cruising seat which is located at the front of the saloon opposite the helm. The galley features a square stainless steel sink, Corian counter top, and a two eye cooker, Webasto Inox refrigeration and freezer and microwave.  The enclosed saloon area is all on one level with the cockpit for ease of entertaining and wide opening saloon doors see the indoors and the outdoors seamlessly merged. An electric sunroof above the saloon and hatch above the owner's cabin provide ample ventilation.
