The Sportster 18 is Specmar’s hull no 515 and the Sportster 20 is the stretched version known as hull no 572. These designs are intended for use on rivers, lakes and protected waters and are available in outboard- and waterjet drive.
The hull has excellent stability and handling characteristics even at high speeds and the “Spray-rails” in the outer hull provide additional hull strength and a sportive look. The bottom construction includes the “Delta Skipad”, Specmar’s invention for enhanced planing performance and stability, with good fuel economy and speed with limited horsepower.
Her robust construction is a combination of longitudinal and transverse framing and designed in accordance with CE- category C (inland waters).
The kit has been modified by Bruce Roberts Europe bv to comply with the European codes and rules, as well as production standards. The Bruce Roberts Europe pre-cut building kit consists of extremely accurate cut parts from first class marine grade aluminium, including precision markings, the pre-forming of all parts and all profiles needed to complete the construction.
The standard kit comprises all parts for the hull including dashboards and windscreens with integrated bow access door, but excludes the deck plate, engine box, fuel tank and marine windows, which are available as optional extras.
