The progeny of tough-as-nails commercial mariners and adventurous Pacific Northwest boaters, the new EagleCraft 33’ Cruiser is available locally and chomping at the bit to get underway.
Right away this boat looks like a local with that classic Pacific Northwest forward angled “attack” cabin/wheelhouse and vaguely arrow shape. The exterior layout is effective with a swim step off the transom and partially covered cockpit. Access to the foredeck is possible via narrow walkways both port and starboard. The cockpit floor opens to reveal the single 400-horsepower Volvo diesel I/O D6 engine.
A clever feature of the exterior is the cabin top where the designers resisted the temptation to cram in a couple of seats and a mini bar. Instead, the cabin top, is wide open, bound by handrails. The innovative will find many uses for this expanse.
The interior makes practical use of the space available. Upon entry, the galley is immediately starboard across from the family dining table that can be converted into a berth. The helm is forward and positioned starboard next to the companionway below where the V-berth and large en suite head are located. An additional berth is tucked into a modest space near the companionway. There are accommodations for six aboard if you pull out all the stops. As far as the mechanics are concerned, the manufacturer reports a cruising speed of 25 knots with a 260-nautical-mile range.
The EagleCraft 33’ Cruiser is clearly a proudly Canadian build well-suited to wild northern waters. Curious? Contact the local dealer and builder, EagleCraft/Daigle Welding & Marine Ltd. Pricing starts at $499,000 CAD (about $342,000 USD at the time of this writing).
