Shearwater Cutter 6.8

Closer to getting the new F200 Yamaha on the back of Duma the Shearwater Cutter hull that I purchased at the end of the season last year. Hull and deck polished and sitting on a new SBS twin axle trailer. Waiting for new shocks from Scotseats then off to Dulas for the new engine in a couple of weeks.

Can't wait to get on the water!

I've wanted to see one of these boats in the flesh for a while, looks like a good hull and quality GRP work. Will be interested to see how the Shearwater performs, speed, vs rough water.

I don't think it will be much faster than yours as it is quite a heavily built.

200 hp on 6.8 m wonít be at all slow even if she is solidly built Nick.

Should do well into the 40s, but like the rest of us you wonít be challenging Dean!

Haha
I'd be amazed if it wasn't: sleeker hull + more waterline + bigger engine = .

Plus were pretty heavily laid up ourselves!

If I'd been overly concerned about speed is have bought summat else!

My 6.8 ribcraft will do 52mph downhill with wind but will easily hit 48mph regularly with 220l of fuel and 2 up.

I doubt many hulls are heavier than my 6.8....proper tank stuff. It is about 1650kg sitting in water. Maybe give you some idea what to expect.

It is deceptively large boat and looks bigger than the 300mm difference in theory to the ribeye 650 or coastline 650 I normally cruise with, I think it is the extra width and size of the V that does it.....plus when I say it is solid I mean SOLID.

What prop are you running? Mine has come with a high-5 21P and a 3 blade 17P. Suspect I need to be somewhere in the middle now the engine has gone down a few inches.

Hi Dave could you break that down as I struggle to get that weight with my 585. Is it dive set up? Tx. B
