Chase 35 has received a completely newly developed Mk2 hull and has been extended by a foot. The new construction provides higher efficiency and better stability. The change now also gives the possibility to use Twin 565 hp High performance engines from Mercury Racing.
15 years ago our typical customers drove luxury sedans, now it’s very much changed towards more user friendly and sporty high-performance SUV’s, like Range Rover and Porsche Cayenne. However, we couldn’t find any equivalence when it comes to boats. You can buy a fast ocean-going RIB, with excellent rough-sea capacity, or you can buy the comfort and quality feeling of a high-quality Day Cruiser.
Unfortunately, most customers find the high-performance alternative too basic and minimalistic for multipurpose family use. And most Day Cruiser simply doesn’t have the performance, rough sea capacity and sporty feeling some of these customers wants. Cormate wants to eliminate this dilemma by making a high-performance SUV for the water. A boat which combines the rough sea capacity, user-friendliness and speed from the best offshore RIB’s, and the comfort and luxury feeling of the high-quality Day Cruisers.

Because of its very efficient and advanced stepped hull and the low weight, the Chase 35 have an exceptional low fuel consumption and high top-speed. With TWIN Mercruiser 270 hp TDI diesel it will reach 48 knots, with fuel consumption of only 1.41 l/nm at best cruising speed. With TWIN Mercruiser 565 Racing engines, the top speed is calculated to 82 knots.
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 35’s size have this high ratio. The downside is normally less usable cockpit volume, but the Chase 35 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 35 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 35 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.
