New Cutwater 32 CB: A User-Friendly, Fast Family Cruiser

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

The new flagship of the ever-growing, increasingly-popular Cutwater fleet, the new 32 Command Bridge is a user-friendly family cruiser with a creative combination of space, comfort and performance. Indeed, standard power on the new Cutwater 32 CB is twin 300-hp Yamaha outboards, and they will deliver enough speed to help you reach that remote cove before nightfall or let you outrun an approaching storm.

Cutwater is known for its ability to pack a lot of standard features inside and out its boats. The 32 CB has a master cabin forward, with an island bed, LED lighting and a head and shower, plus a private midships cabin for guests or family; two more people can sleep on the convertible dinette in the salon. The boat has a full galley with enough storage space to supply a family cruising vacation.

The cockpit comes with seats that fold out of the bulwarks, reversing seats (meaning they can face forward or aft) against the transom, a grill, sink and fridge.  The swim platform is large (20 square feet) and is built so it doesn’t have any hoses or rigging tubes to trip over.

There’s more lounge seating on the bow, and you could have a small party up top on the flybridge. The helm there is equipped with same Garmin electronics that you’ll find on the lower helm. Bow and stern thrusters are standard.

The boat has a double-stepped, deep-V hull for performance. We don’t  have any speed number yet, but with 600 horsepower and only 10,000 pounds of displacement, the 32 CB should move. The hull is designed so it corners firmly and smoothly.

Built in Monroe, Washington, a bit northeast of Seattle, the Cutwater 32 CB comes ready to cruise in two packages with factory-direct pricing. The Northwest Edition has a diesel forced-air furnace, propane stove and oven, and downrigger plugs and pads, all for $329,937. The Luxury Edition includes a 5kW gas genset, air conditioning, a two-burner electric stove-top, and combo convection oven/microwave, for $344,937.
