Another nice performance cruiser to be presented at the Hamburg boat show, the Pacer 400.
The boat can be delivered in three versions, an upgraded cruiser one at 209 560 € a lighter one in epoxy resin for 236 450 € and a race version with carbon fiber mast for 293 990 € (prices with 17% German VAT).
They use high tech materials and building techniques specially on the upgraded versions. On the Cheaper version they use on Hull and Decks Vinylester composites. On the upgraded versions the Hull is built using vacuum bagged hand lay-up before the hardening process starts, and is post cured after it has left the mould. The laminated construction consists of hydrolysis - proof epoxy resin, multidirectional fabrics and foam as sandwich material. Internally the laminate is sealed using topcoat.
The interior seems a lot better than on the 376, their other model that was already brought to Europe.
The boat is light and powerful and should be very fast.
