Front Runners November 2015: Carbon Increase

  • Adding 2 feet to its CC160 production model, Carbon Craft recently completed an 18.5-foot custom model powered by a 295 hp diesel engine.

Adding 2 feet to its CC160 production model, Carbon Craft (carboncraft.com), a yacht-tender builder based in Tampa, Fla., recently completed an 18.5-foot custom model powered by a 295 hp diesel engine. The owners will need little time getting to and from their yacht: The engine is part of a jet propulsion system that, combined with the vessel’s lightweight (2,800-pound) carbon-fiber construction, enables a top speed above 40 knots. The custom tender’s beam is a foot wider than that of the CC160 ($165,000). The extra width and length enabled Carbon Craft to add a removable picnic table and increase the passenger capacity from nine to 10.
