Down East Cruiser.Going in, the channel narrows considerably after you pivot to starboard at the last day mark, and the darn thing gets narrower still once you start sneaking past the pulpits and swim platforms protruding from the east dock. About the last thing I wanted to do at the moment was exceed idle speed.
We purred along. The guy standing there signaled that he was ready to toss a line. I stepped away from the helm for a split second to peer through the starboard wing door and examine the foredeck below—the guy standing there signaled he was ready as well. Actually docking the 60 went down smoother than a slab of key lime pie.
I simply kicked her bow around in front of the slip with full starboard rudder and a healthy shot of throttle and bumped her ZF electronic engine control astern a couple of times while using the Side Power bow thruster to steer.
My fervor was not a wholly recent phenomenon. Check out the performance figures at rpm: an average speed of 6. Sandwiched layers of acoustic-barrier material blanket bulkheads and hull sides in the machinery spaces, and Wavebar Quadzero foil-faced damping sheets underlie floorings. And virtually all motorized components from main engines to water pumps are isolation-mounted to nix structure-borne noise transmission. There was one open-water detail that proved a tad disappointing, though.
His response was straightforward. Rather than raising the swim platform just enough to nix turbulence beneath, it was producing overly negative running attitudes, as well as a slight tendency to bow steer, under certain conditions.
Topside safety, for example, was an obvious priority—at 3'7", the height of the bulwarks forward was lofty and protective, as were the heights of the Portuguese Bridge 4'3" and the welded, stainless steel boat-deck railing 2'6".
Interior living spaces were expansive, cruise-comfortable, and finely crafted; our test boat, with a 17'6" long saloon, galley, and wheelhouse on the main deck and an engine room and three-stateroom, two-head accommodation area below, sported one of several optional layouts.
Additionally, just about every piece of ancillary equipment I looked at while touring the vessel—from the residential-type appliances in the galley to the Key Power KP genset-energized hydraulic get-home system in the machinery spaces—was standard issue.
Indeed, I came across only four major options: granite countertops, electronics, a Bower davit, and an extra genset. This last factor made summarization at the end of my tour especially easy. Our test boat had simple, practical machinery spaces with 5'2" headroom, ample fluorescent lighting, and diamond-plate underfoot.
Access to the engine is superb—I could walk all around the Lugger, which was guarded by high stainless steel railings, like I was strolling around a park.
The outboard fuel tanks are covered with noise-absorbent sheets and perforated aluminum and are equipped with sightglasses and large inspection covers. Moreover, Racors for gensets and the main are conveniently marshaled in a single, easy-to-get-at location: on a StarBoard panel against one tank.

With these systems, our designers can quickly and accurately perform weight distribution studies using intricate mathematical models that would otherwise take weeks to complete. The advantage of having a composite model is that we can accurately see perspective views.
This "real life" view gives us the ability to place a hypothetical person in the boat to gather ergonomic data.
