Design 954 by Specmar is a further development of the Orca 828, modified for Volvo I/O D6 drive with twin propeller and equipped with several extras such as the sportive looking cabin, 2 large fish holds and a 500 L capacity fuel tank. The raised bow and self bailing deck make this boat suitable for fast cruising under most water and weather conditions on lakes and coastal waters.
The hull shape stems from the successful ORCA design with perfect characteristics for stability and handling at speeds up to 60 km/hour. Scantlings and construction comply with CE-category B (coastal waters).
As with most Specmar designed hulls, the construction is a combination of longitudinal and transverse framing, making this a very sturdy yet easy to assemble boat, suitable for semi-professional usage. A large fuel tank below the aft deck makes this boat suitable for longer trips.
The integrated “spray-rails” in the outer hull provide a unique combination of hull strength and streamlined outlook. Together with the Specmar patented “Delta Skipad” in the bottom Construction ensures a high stability and excellent sailing and handling characteristics.
The design and kit have been adapted and modified by Bruce Roberts Europe bv to comply with European codes and rules, as well as production standards. The Bruce Roberts Europe pre-cut building kit consists of extremely accurate cut plate parts including precision markings and pre-forming of all parts.
A comprehensive set of assembly drawings and instructions compliment the kit ensuring efficient and fast assembly of this boat. Optional extras such as marine windows and doors are also available from Bruce Roberts Europe.
