First Launch Of 2017

First Launch Of 2017

Stormforce 1050

March saw the first launch of 2017 with a Stormforce 1050 going to a Mr Crompton on the Isle of Mull. It incorporates our latest cruising console design. External seating for up to 10 people with 4 ULLMAN Suspension Seats, 2 POD Seats and a removable back rest for the engine bay lid that can comfortably seat 4 people. A full length double berth in the spacious forward cabin that wraps back to provides passenger shelter whilst underway.

The customer wanted the warmth and protection of a cabin boat but for summer days the open boat feel. So to meet this an extra long canopy cover was added that stretched from the front of the console back to the rear A-Frame. This completely enclosed the passengers and with a PASSAD heating system made it a really warm space to be in .

Propulsion was lead by a single Yanmar 8LV-370 coupled to ZT370 pushing the boat to a top speed of 43 knots. A cruising speed of 28kts is achievable and with a large 450 litre tank provides for an endurance of over 300Nm. Lenco trim tabs are fitted to provide extra control in adverse sea conditions.

Electronics included:

  • Garmin 7412 GPS MAP
  • Garmin 7408
  • Garmin GMR 18HD Radar
  • Garmin VHF100i VHF
  • Fusion Marine Bluetooth Sound System

 

A larger anchor locker was added to the bow of the boat to house a pot hauler as the customer want to use the boat to haul his creels.
