Boat Description

Big enough to take rough seas in its stride, yet easy to tow and launch, the 522 is the perfect choice for those seeking a boat that is tough, safe and versatile. The easily driven hull lines ensure good performance and excellent economy with modest sized outboards, whilst the deep forefoot and modified V sections give a dry and comfortable ride in a seaway. The deep self draining cockpit and stable hull form inspire confidence when cruising offshore as do the solid sensibly sized deck fittings and moulded in non slip surfaces.
Other features include no feedback steering, underfloor vented fuel locker with a gas strutted lid, battery stowage with hinged lid and inset coamings combined with 26”interior freeboard plus plenty of uncluttered cockpit space.
Overall dimensions are compact enough to make the 522 simple to park in the garden or garage and with the optional Orkney multi roller trailer, launching and recovery is a simple single handed operation. With speeds up to 26 knots and superb seakeeping the 522 must be the ultimate 17 footer.
