Vessel Overview

THE FORTIER 30′ AT A GLANCE Fortier 30′ Specs  L.O.A. 30’  L.W.L. 27’6”  Beam 11’  Draft 30”  Displacement 9,200lbs  Two (2) 100 Gallon Fuel Tanks

This Fortier has just been REPOWERED with twin Yanmar engines!

At first glance from the water, you may think the boat is its iconic little sister, the Fortier 26 (which is still their best seller). However, when you are inside, you feel like you’re in the 33-foot big sister. In my opinion, this model is the queen of the Fortier fleet. It’s stable on twin Yanmars, fuel efficient, fishes hard but has the look of a classic New England boat.

Size & interior space is excellent for a 30′ boat. The boat is impossibly big for its size. It actually has the same cockpit space as the 33’, about 100 square feet, AKA a small ballroom for a boat that size. Since the boat is an express style boat, there is plenty of space on the bridge deck. .

Down below features a larger V-berth, a fully enclosed head with shower, and full stand up galley. The cockpit is large enough for fishing or day cruising. With the step-up bridge deck  and comfortable accommodations down below, the Fortier 30 provides the living area comfortable enough for two people to go off for a week with no problem. 

 Size & interior space is excellent for a 30′ boat. The boat is impossibly big for its size. It actually has the same cockpit space as the 33’, about 100 square feet, AKA a small ballroom for a boat that size. Since the boat is an express style boat, there is plenty of space on the bridge deck. 

The engine room holds twin inboard Yanmar 6by3 260 Diesels. The engine room is accessible by a large hatch. For daily service, a small center hatch is manually removable to make routine tasks a breeze to complete.

Built right for and can stand up to fishing. This boat has real-boat components. Big cleats, oversized hard ware, giant compass, etc. Definitely feels like a traditional maritimes-man designed it. It’s Spartan and clean, but has a beautiful teak windshield, rub rails and anchor pulpit to class it up. The lines speak for themselves. If you like classic bass boat lines, you’ll love the Fortier.

 Solid stability and ride.  The boat is so stable, it’s like standing on an island when at troll or drifting. It’s really, really stable. It has an 11’ beam with a hull design that enables this. That said, it is amazingly adjusted for its class, you can drink coffee from a mug in the typical afternoon slop we have out in the Sound.

 Twin diesels have advantages (and disadvantages) over outboards. A lot of the boats with big outboards today can push 30kts cruise. Center consoles, much faster. The good news with diesels — you get a heavy ride (in a good way) torque for great maneuverability on a fish or at the marina, reliability, better fishing space, fuel efficiency, longetivity and a TON more cockpit space. Lastly, the engines are far quieter. 

Bottom Line: This boat truly doesn’t fail anywhere quality-wise. It looks more like a boat than a bubble and has a layout that accommodates family, crew and hard-core fishing. It’s built in New England for New England waters by people who actually boat which translates to a vessel that deals really well with afternoon slop and chop we get around these parts. I think this boat makes a lot of sense for boaters who spend more time topside than below decks. It has so much more usable space than mainstream boats like Grady White, Pursuit and Edgewater do in the same size class.
