Fairway 370

Norris Comer New Boats

Fairway 370The Fairway 370 is a mid-sized, semi-displacement addition to the local boating scene. This yacht from United Motor Yachts, an Australian distributor, has undergone a recent revamp to produce what we see plying our waters today.

The 370 has two single berths, a double berth, two cabins, and a complete head for accommodations. Prominent features of the exterior include the bimini-covered flybridge, generous deck space forward for lounging, and a covered cockpit. A ladder connected the flybridge and the cockpit, both of which have ample seating for several guests.

Did we mention the swim step? The generous swim step aft, complete with safty rail, looks ideal for the deployment of kayaks or a dinghy during a cruise up the Inside Passage.

The Fairway 370 is pushed by 350 horsepowers from a single 8LV-350C Yanmar diesel direct-drive engine. She is said by the manufacturer to maintain a crisp cruise speed of about 15 knots and a maximum speed of around 17 knots, which puts her somewhere between a trawler and a sport cruiser. The best of both worlds, perhaps?
