30’ Double Cockpit Runabout

30’ Double Cockpit Runabout

For this new double cockpit runabout, we set out to design a fully concealed convertible top. With the push of a keyfob button, deck panels electrically open and allow the powered, Ray Dietrich-inspired top to automatically deploy.

The panels then close up neatly against the canvas as a hidden retractor pulls the top down snugly and to proper tension. Its perfect for extending the boating season into the Spring or Fall when the sun is warm but the air is cool. The aft cockpit provides room for three and can be closed off with a canvas cover.

Twin small block V8s will provide spirited performance and a pleasing rumble. A generous beam allows easy movement within the cockpit and comfortable seating for three across the bench seat. Storage up forward, in the sole and under seats provides ample space for personal effects, lines and fenders.

With her crisp 1930s styling, I think Mr. Dietrich would have approved.
