|New model announced
Westwood Marine are pleased to announce the launch this year of their latest model - the A390. This is the first all new British designed and built 12 metre aft cabin motor cruiser for several years. A completely new design by Andrew Wolstenholme, timeless elegant lines but also capable of speeds up to 25 knots using the latest compact diesel engines, plus the renowned Wolstenholme semi displacement hull.
|An all new design from the pen of Andrew Wolstenholme, one of the UK's most respected marine architects.
From the very beginnings of Westwood, our ultimate goal was to develop a boat to take the 12 metre aft cabin cruiser to the next level, to create a boat that could offer the owner super yacht standards within the restricted length of 12 metres.
So now, using the latest computer technology, and Andrew's renowned flair, the A390 Project was 'underway'.
The brief: to design Westwood a hull that would be ideally suited to the inland waterways.
But also be capable of cruising offshore in the mid 20k range.
A superstructure with a timeless elegance that would remain in vogue for many years to come, and with safety ever in mind, a deck line with wide decks, deep bulwarks and substantial guard rails. Then, to allow the A390 to access the upper reaches of the Thames, and to make the passage through France to the Mediterranean, a folding radar arch is fitted as standard.
When it came to the engineering we chose to use the latest compact marine diesel engines from Yanmar & Volvo-Penta. Engines capable of supplying the required power, but remaining economical throughout their performance range.
