Dual Purpose: Coastal Craft 33 Express
Canadian builder Coastal Craft has launched the 33 Express, a design intended to allow the elements inside on nice cruising days while protecting the skipper and guests if the weather turns rough.
The sunroof can be opened or closed, as can double rear doors. With everything open, Coastal Craft says, the 33 Express feels much like a runabout with the handling of a yacht. With everything closed, the temperature-controlled salon becomes a haven from wind and rain.
Built in aluminum, the Coastal Craft 33 Express comes standard with twin 350-horsepower Mercury Verado outboards. According to the builder, they allow for a top speed of 41 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots. With optional 400-horsepower Verados, the cruising speed is 35 knots and the top hop is 45 knots.
Features at the helm include a SeaStar hydraulic power steering wheel, outboard electronic engine controls, and an outboard digital gauge display with a contoured switching panel.
Fuel capacity is 330 gallons, and the vessel has a 330-nautical-mile range, according to the builder. A single stateroom and head are part of the design, for overnights on the hook while cruising.
What kind of finishing is aboard the Coastal Craft 33 Express? The interior is black walnut with teak soles. The cockpit is built with UltraDeck.
