Brief Summary

Cutwater trailerable and affordable Downeast cruisers were unveiled last winter by the Pacific Northwest boat builder Fluid Motion, builder of the successful Ranger Tugs. The Cutwater Downeaster will come in two sizes -- for now -- 26' (8 m) and 28' (8.61 m). They are both powered by single Yanmar diesel engines to save weight, and fuel, and to provide the low-end torque necessary to get these boats quickly on plane. The company has targeted couples in their 50s and 60s who want the cruising dream without having to mortgage their retirement nest egg. The MSRP starts at $139,937.
