8m Sports Fisherman

Boat Building, Naval Architects, Boat Design
This 7.85m design is built for serious offshore use. Combining elements from our patrol boat designs, the variable deadrise deep vee hull gives a smooth ride in rough conditions, and good all round performance from low planing speeds to 40 knots +.
The prototype is fitted with a 350hp inboard diesel sterndrive for comfortable cruising in the 25-30 knot range, and sprint speeds of up to 45 knots. The fully enclosed cabin and large cockpit gives a great platform for offshore and long distance cruising and fishing.
The fuel capacity of 600l gives an extended cruising range, making longer trips possible. The design is available in kit form aluminium construction for the home or commercial builder, and a range of layout and powering options are possible.
