The Cormate Chase 32 has its world launch during this year’s “Båter i Sjøen”! It is a further development of the Chase 34, which has won 2nd place in the prestigious “Concours d’Elégance” during the boat fair in Cannes.
The Chase 32 is optimized for single engine installation by, among other things, changing the weight distribution and the bottom structure.
Good predictable sea characteristics and the ability to maintain high speed even in rough seas have had the highest priority during the design process. Nevertheless, the Chase 32 are also very versatile and user-friendly with their open walkaround solution, and a living comfort in the day cruiser class.
Designer and founder
Because of its very efficient and advanced stepped hull and the low weight, the Chase 32 have an exceptional low fuel consumption and high top-speed. With a single Mercury 430 hp V8 petrol it will reach 50 knots, with fuel consumption of only 1.4 l/nm at best cruising speed.
The hull is a development of our very advanced and efficient Monostep technology, but the length/width ratio is inspired by the real ocean going offshore racers from the 60’ties and 70’ties. These tough races were dominated by Ray Hunt and Don Aronow hulls, before the races was moved to more sheltered waters. These boats had 24-25 degrees deadrise and often a 4:1 length/width hull ratio. This ratio was an excellent compromise between the need of high speeds in flat and choppy waters, and a safe hull with enough hydrodynamic bow lift and buoyancy for the toughest ocean racing.
A 4:1 hull ratio is considered extreme by todays standard and few boats of Chase 32’s size have this high ratio. The downside is normally less usable cockpit volume, but the Chase 32 has a clever usage of each cm of width, and the inside cockpit volume is comparable or even better than many competitors of the same size. The outside width is only 255 cm (263 cm with heavy duty rub rail), this makes the Chase 32 easily trailable and even transportable in an open sides container. The narrow beam and the use of; vinylester, unidirectional fiberglass, high quality core materials and infusion technology, makes the boat extremely rigid, strong and light.
The rigid and compact hull, the 24.5 degrees deadrise and the 4:1 hull ratio make the Chase 32 cut through choppy water in an extremely soft way, without discomfort and slamming noses. The reverse rake windshield gives better wind and weather protection, especially when driving half standing in the offshore seats. It also gives more cockpit volume, less disturbing reflections and better rain visibly. All these construction parameters also make this boat very suitable as a Chase boat for the Superyacht marked.
