Wright & Lavranos 11 powercat design was beautifully built
under MSA survey by West Coast Boats in Raglan, in aluminium,
and launched in December. The design is a developed "cut
file" kitset, so that the hull is plasma cut and delivered
to the builder precut & labelled. She was built for a Motueka
based client who uses her for a taxi service in the Marlborough
Sounds, carrying twenty passengers as well as for charter fishing,
with 8 passengers.
The boat has a top speed of 22 knots fully laden, and comfortably
cruises at 20, with a pair of Volvo TAMD41P engines (147 KW
each @ 3800 RPM), driving 560mm x 4 blade Henley's Tiger props
through a ZF 2.56 reduction gearboxes. She is an outstanding
sea boat, soft-riding and with excellent wing deck clearance,
and with good spray damping she is very dry.
The very large self draining cockpit provides excellent access
to the motors and is equipped with a bait tank, pot hauler,
bait table, rod holders, fish box, and lots of storage and seating.
The shower and toilet compartment is accessed from the forward
end of the cockpit. The saloon and galley area is around the
helm station, and there are a pair of double cabins with berths
for 6 down below. The saloon settee and table is also convertible
to a double.
