Cutwater C-30 Command Bridge

There’s quite a few locally-built Cutwater builds on local waters these days, and the newest Cutwater C-30 Command Bridge (CB) is an evolution of the original C-30 pocket cruiser with a sporty look that takes the build in a new direction.

The distinguishing feature of the CB is the open flybridge that works in concert with another helm within the cabin. Granted, a flybridge on a sporty cruising boat of this size isn’t going to be as large as a slower, beefier trawler of similar length overall, but for those of us who put a premium on the wind-in-you-face feel, the bridge could be the perfect touch. Access to the bridge is granted via a simple set of stairs oriented port from the cockpit. Additionally, simple but functional bench seating is positioned right behind the helm for company. A radar tower or solar array could naturally be mounted up there as well.

The cockpit seating arrangement comfortably accommodates eight adults within striking distance of the swimstep. The galley also conceals cooking appliances beneath a hinged countertop, a nice touch to make the space more versatile. There’s deployable seating on the foredeck for relaxation, but make sure to use the handrails to navigate the exposed walkways. There are three separate berths aboard designed to host six guests. The CB is powered by a 435-horsepower Volvo inboard diesel engine.

If this locally-made, pocket family cruiser with sporty looks and flybridge experience has your eye, you can reach out to local dealers Sundance Yachts (Blaine, Portland, Seattle) or Bellingham Yacht Sales (Bellingham, Everett) for more information or pricing options.
