New Model: Coronet 35 Suncruiser

The iconic Danish Coronet is back!  I fully agree with this statement since in my young years I grew up surrounded by Coronets most notably the top selling 21 Daycruiser model, which had hull designed by Walt Walters and Jim Wynn, the designers famous for creating the Don Aronow hulls as used on the Cigarette-Donzi-Magnum.  The Coronet 21 sold a staggering 1406 units in the Daycruiser version in a twelve year production run, plus another 505 hulls in the three other; Playmate, Sunrunner, and Explororer II versions which used the same hull.  Not known to many today is that Coronet was the name in putting the deep Vee hull on the map and attention in Northern Europe.  Unlike 2008, when Coronet made a small comeback with the 290 Sport and Weekend models, this new 35 Suncruiser is respectful to the Danish builder past and its most legendary 21 Daycruiser model.  Welcome back Coronet!

Project: Coronet 350 Weekend

The new Coronet 350 Weekend which is to be the new flagship from the Danish builder signals a modern timeless design but also a keeping with smaller models of the range in particular the latest release the 290. It will also ensure recognisable looks to the old legendary Coronet models in the hull lines, and similar to the new ones with the upper structure. Coronets want to perceive the new model as having an exclusive look to the range, presenting a modern retro touched all weather hard top sport cruiser developed on the concept of the 290 Weekend. So far little details are available but we know that it will be a twin engined with stern drive propulsion. The cockpit aft deck will also offer a clever layout as seen on the 290 with an l-shaped settee all covered under the hard top, and a small sun lounger aft.

New Model: Coronet 290 Weekender

A legendary builder return, this is the Norwegian Coronet having had a glorious past in the 1970s. Coronet which was founded in 1951 reappeared in 2006 first offering a 24 feet model, then the 290 Sport, and the past Spring came up with this new 290 Weekender, its largest offer in the current range. The Coronet 290 Weekender is a very interesting sport cruiser, with a nice modern line and solutions found in bigger sized sport cruisers. The hardtop is to good to be true for an 8 metre sports cruiser, being great looking for this size with a clean design and no hump effect on the eye. Another impressive clean solution is the walk through windshield in the windscreen which you hardly notice, and the large window flash fitted on the also stylish flash deck. Worth to note is that a US builder reported as being the only one to offer a walk trough windshield on an enclosed hard top on its much bigger model, I think they forgot to look out of the US for this! 290 Weekender interior offers a comfortable double vee shaped berth to fore, a separate head and a galley. The cockpit is also spacious reminiscent of a much bigger boat offering a sun lounger aft, l-shaped settee, wetbar with tub grill, and single seated helm station to starboard. Estimated performance is a 45 knots top speed with single Volvo D4 260hp engine, which I think is a bit optimistic. This so far seems the only engine option which will give excellent economy, but will also limit the market to new comers and coastal cruisers, then to those who passing from a smaller boat with want the security and safety twin engines give.
