Sail-World.com : Clipper's new Hudson Bay 50 has a barbie queue

Clipper's new Hudson Bay 50 has a barbie queue

'The look is new for Clipper but the Hudson Bay's quality is as good as ever.'    Artists Impression    Click Here to view large photo

'Teppan' means iron pan and 'yaki' means grilling in Japanese, but in my case it usually means ending up with (fried) egg on my face and rice in my lap.

So I’m a bit wary about Clipper Motor Yachts’s new Hudson Bay 50 sedan cruiser having a teppanyaki hotplate. I reckon I’ll just throw a few snags on its luxury lava rock barbecue instead…

'This is a highly specced boat,' said Clipper Motor Yachts Australia managing director Brett Thurley.
No kidding!

Two barbecues are just the start of a lengthy list of lifestyle options fitted to the first new-generation HB to roll off the production line in China.

The boat is scheduled to leave the factory in late October and be officially launched in Australia in mid-November.

'The new Hudson Bay combines the classic lines for which Clippers are renowned, with a flourish of the contemporary lifestyle aspects of a sedan cruiser,' Thurley said.

'The team has gone to great lengths to refine the look of the helm, with an innovative hand-stitched leather pod to house the electronics.

'The cabins feature Australian fabrics for the wall linings and bedheads, as well as Italian-inspired upholstery for the dinette and saloon settee. Build quality and interior fit-out on this boat can only be described as world class.'

The hull is constructed in solid hand-laid fibreglass below the waterline and cored fibreglass above. Deck and hardtop are infusion moulded with a honeycomb core to maintain strength while reducing weight.

Standard power in the 50-footer is a choice between twin Yanmar 480hp or twin Cummins 440hp engines, though vessel number one has 600hp diesels that will deliver speeds of up to 26 knots.

The hydraulic swim platform doubles as a submersible platform with teak tread stairway – only the centre section raises and lowers. It can be used to launch a jet ski or tender, sparing the need for an internal garage.

A roof overhang shades the tables and outdoor dinette, while a sliding sunroof in the saloon flood this area with air and light. Three large ports in the topsides provide ample light to the cabins.
