With classic-style sports cruisers becoming more popular, Bill Upfold has responded with a 17.2m (57-foot) sedan with traditional lines inspired by the Down East Maine lobster boats.

Bill is no stranger to these classics, having designed the Espresso 40, now re-badged the Whitehaven Harbour Classic.

The new boat’s design styling features a fine entry with generous flare, developing into tumblehome aft and a moulded retro-look transom. Accommodation consists of three cabins and two heads forward.

The saloon features forward-facing seating with the helm to starboard. Visibility underway is excellent. With the aft galley to starboard, the large dining area to port opens out onto the cockpit via a pillar-less electric window and entry door.

A small tender is garaged under the cockpit sole and the hydraulic transom opens outwards to create a large boarding platform.

Suggested power is twin 600hp shaft-drives with tunnels. Alternative propulsion options are also offered.
