Eco XR21

Hi, are you looking for new or secondhand? What sort of conditions do you expect to use the boat in? How much use will it get and is fuel consumption a concern? We'll shortly be building a demonstrator of the Eco XR21 (a metre shorter than the Eco XR24). It will be very fuel efficient and have loads of storage, with a large bow locker, plus console locker and storage under the seats. We don't yet have the 21 on the website, but the 24 is illustrated: www.eco-marine.co.uk

ECO a little bird tells me you are after some info on xr special project boats and there true origins
i would be very interested to see your 21 version is this boat still with delta conic hull, have you revised the dead rise, etc, what s positive buoyancy empty at rest relative do you have one running yet

i assume this hull is not the revised xr20 we produced as a proto type

Yes, we're interested in info and photos of the XR24s. We'd like to build up a gallery of photos of the originals on our website. The 21 will have the same conic delta hull and the same deadrise, with a shorter planing wedge - basically an XR24 but a metre shorter. We're doing the design calcs at the moment. I can give you figures on positive buoyancy - do you want total hull volume, plus bow locker, plus tube volume? The plan is to start building the first one within a month. You'll be very welcome to come and see it. I didn't know about your revised xr20 - would you like to PM me some info on it?

How about this? Economical, great sea boat, very manoeuvrable, and we can put custom camera storage beside the helm seat for you. The best thing is it is the most stable 6 metre boat you will ever go on!
