~Rossiter 17 Center Console
For years proud owners of our Rossiter 14 power boat have asked if we would build an outboard with the same classic look, fit and finish and unbeatable soft, dry ride that thrives in big waterâ¦ but with a little more room and horsepower. So we created the Rossiter 17 Center Console for those who want to enjoy the wind in their hair.We took full advantage of the latest in computer-aided design and 3D modelling to ensure that the hull performance and engineering delivered the stability, performance and sea-keeping characteristics youâve come to expect in a Rossiter power boat, thus delivering the ride of something much bigger but with tremendous efficiency and speed.
The Center Console has an open concept roominess as well as lots of storage for fishing and other gear and, of course, has a self-draining cockpit, level flotation and is unsinkable. Powered by either 90 or 115 horses, this new Rossiter can take the whole family out for a day of picnicking and water skiing or haul supplies back and forth with ease in almost any weather â¦ all the while looking and acting like nothing else on the water. And surprising to most, with a 90hp engine our Rossiter 17 jumps out of the water with a full load with little to no bow rise and delivers over 100 miles of range on 27 gallons of fuel at 30 mph cruising speed. And if you want speed, she can deliver 43 â 50 mph depending on your horsepower preference.
With respect to construction of a Rossiter power boat, our hull design is unique to Rossiter with a focus on big-water performance, efficiency and ride, not to mention our commitment to quality fit and finish. Our boats have hand laid, solid hulls with a molded, foam-filled stringer grid, and the use of structural closed-cell foam cores used where needed to provide the necessary panel stiffness in our liners, decks and transoms. They also have a vinyl ester barrier coat to reduce the chance of osmotic blistering and print-through occurring. And, in fact, the only wood in our boats is the teak accents you see in the interior cockpit area. You should also know that our liners are bonded to the stringer grid, topsides and transom, independent of the deck assembly which is bolted to the sheer using machine screws every 6â³ though a 1/4â³ high density epoxy board which runs the length of the sheer. This method provides you with a very solid feel to the boat, thus enhancing the ride delivered by our hull shape and many years of enjoyment.
