Up to 6.5km per litre, 130km on a tank of fuel

There’s a reason the outboard manufacturer’s want to do their fuel tests with our boats. With weights starting at 180kg, the 4.5m Lapstrake is notoriously called the ‘skeeter beater’ around the work shop. The hull has been designed to maximise speed from the smallest outboards, the layout is designed to the ultimate bass boat setup. Designed in conjunction with a race boat builder, the lapstrake design pushes air under the hull creating a quick planing boat with less friction. In turn the boat not only goes fast, it is also very economical on fuel. In house testing got 6.5km per litre at times. With a 30hp outboard we achieved 26knots with 2 people on board and 22knots with a 20hp.
