The young brand with the bird name Cutwater was the response of the reputable and far from young American company Fluid Motion to the demands of the 21st century yacht market. Since 1958, the men of the Levingston family have been building the well-known Ranger Tugs pocket tugs in Washington State. For a long time, these compact trawlers remained among the symbols of a slow-moving pleasure fleet, but with the change of generations the demand for ships of this type fell, and the shipyard made a radical maneuver, relying on high-speed boats for family vacations.
This is how Cutwater appeared - boats with stationary motors and interesting hulls of a transitional type, characterized by the presence of a ventilated transverse redan and turning into skeins of false keels. The geometry of the hull, which is unusual for such a size class, made it possible to achieve efficient fuel consumption, good stability, and habitability. The combination of these factors, together with branded “goodies” like a wide transom platform, an additional control post and a stern sofa with a folding back, immediately distinguished Cutwater from the likes. Due to their compact size, Cutwater boats are suitable for transporting on a trailer.
