This boat delivers outstanding good quality and value for money with the Mercury FourStroke 175 V6. With a very efficient hull together with a light and powerful engine, this combines good performance, unbeatable fuel economy and low noise level. Very few (or none) other 23 foot cabin boats have been able to deliver this kind of performance from a 175 hp engine. This engine gives a top speed of 45 knots and fuel consumption down to 0.75 l/nm at planing speeds.
All boats are now using infusion system, optimized fiber directions and Vinylester resin. The biggest engine we recommend is the 300 hp Verado or Pro XS (top speed 58 knots).
Colin Chapman’s famous mantra has been the inspiration for the new Cormate Utility 23 series.
The aim has been to create a simple and minimalistic boat, but with quality, finish and details that belongs at the top level of the premium class. This is true Cormate quality in every detail.
The extreme efficiently of the Utility 23 has been made possible by simplifying and lightening all parts of the boat. There are no unnecessary panels and every square centimeter of laminate is designed to be minimized, yet the outside areas are larger than on many other boats in this class. Needless decoration or “design gimmick” is completely absent. Here, it’s all about efficiency and function.
Although simplification has been prioritized, the hull itself is highly advanced. Never before have Cormate boats racing genes been more apparent. Extremely low weight and a new and revolutionary “Monostep” construction (developed by Cormate) provides an efficiency that until now has been impossible to achieve with this size and type of boat.
