Motorboat & Yachting - - The Cool List -

The most re­mark­able thing about the Chase 34 is how well put to­gether it was con­sid­er­ing it had only been dropped in the wa­ter the week be­fore the show and the team hadn’t even had a chance to run the en­gines. When they do, with its pair of 370hp V8 diesels, it will com­fort­ably top 50 knots and if they fit the op­tional twin 540hp in­board petrols (there are out­board op­tions, too) they reckon it will do 30 more!

If you’re do­ing 80 knots you need to be cer­tain the boat can take it and judg­ing by the way the 34 hangs to­gether it’s a non-is­sue. The tac­til­ity of ev­ery­thing is ex­cep­tional and the at­ten­tion to de­tail to die for. Yes there is a sparse dou­ble berth and a sep­a­rate bath­room, but the boat is best put to use cov­er­ing vast dis­tances with ease to ar­rive at the best an­chor­age first and en­joy the clever cock­pit. What a weapon.
