Hull & Deck

29z is the only 29 footer in the world that can deliver such a fuel efficient, dry, quiet and comfortable ride. This is due to its high-tech epoxy pre-preg Kevlar/Eglass/Corecell laminate that's vacuum-bagged and oven post-cured. Construction is certified as an ISO CE Mark Category B Offshore Power Yacht. And, NO WOOD ON DECK to maintain.

The 29z is the most fuel efficient 29 footer on the market. Apart from hi-tech construction and good design, a major factor is the Volvo Duoprop (counter rotating props on the same shaft) sterndrive. This is the most efficient and quietest propulsion system available. It is also ideal for shoal water operation; is less subject to damage hitting floating objects; and,makes it easier to clear a fouled propeller. Simply hinge the drive up, kneel on the swim platform and reach down to untangle the props. No swimming necessary.
