|CrossCurrent U.23 Carbon Ultra Rigid Inflatable|
CrossCurrent Marine’s U.23 is a rigid inflatable boat constructed of proprietary carbon and Kevlar® epoxy composite. Lightweight and ultra-durable, it is well equipped for coastal cruising or excursions in open water and is perfect for scuba diving, fishing, water skiing or wakeboarding.
Capable of achieving speeds of 45 knots, the U.23 maintains stability and a comfortable ride at high speeds under reasonable load and conditions. The craft’s teak deck offers accommodations for sunning, sitting and entertaining. The rear seat lounge and leaning post convert to a 3.9-foot-wide sun bed or bench and table for meals, while the front platform extension provides another, more spacious, sunbathing area. The hard-top arch design offers sun protection, an overhead compartment for installing electronics, support for fishing and sun shade poles, mounting for audio speakers and nighttime deck lighting and a mounting point for a wake boarding tow line. The deck of the U.23 slopes rearward for easy cleaning and self-bailing and a telescoping swim ladder is nested under the port platform. The craft’s driving console opens for easy access to the integrated icebox and tube inflator pump.
The U.23 is rated to carry a maximum of five people in wind conditions not exceeding 42 mph and waves up to 13 feet, and a maximum of 12 people in wind conditions not exceeding 28 mph and waves up to 6.5 feet. The U.23 Carbon is protected by a 5-year hull and tube warranty.
With twin diesel Volvo D6 engines (370 hp each), the boat cruises at 25 knots.
