VEITCH 27 HARDTOP
The Veitch 27 Hardtop has a 2.5m beam and 25.5 degrees at the transom. The aggressive dead-rise extends right up into the bow at more than 50 degrees, complemented by a large flare. Roger says it’s more of a wedge than a traditional Carolina flare. “I wanted to create more buoyancy in the top section of the boat to keep the bow up when diving into big swells. It keeps things pretty dry, particularly running down sea.
“We really compensated (for the large dead-rise) with wide, rounded-out reverse chines,” Roger continues. “They sit low in the water and give the boat a great sense of stability at rest and at speed. A lot of water is working its way up to those chines and back down. You can feel it work. The chines also help it turn on rails. It’s fast and predictable around corners.”
Stay tuned for the all new Veitch 23… coming soon!
