    Default Does anyone know about Scanmar 33?

    Any informed opinions will be welcomed.

    In particular, do you know if they were available with a shallow draft of 5 feet? If so, was that option any good?

    Ta!

    Can't tell you much about the Scanmar except that I think that James Jermaine owned one. I've a similar type boat, Maxi 1100, with a shallow keel, 5', and while I think I can point as high as a fin keel version, I lose a bit in leeway. To compensate for the shallow draught, they put an extra 300 kg on the keel. On the Maxi owner's website there is an article written by an owner who started off with a fin keel version and then had the shallow draught version fitted.

    Thanks for both these lightening fast replies.

    I've seen one advertised with draft of 5 feet, so maybe Bill is on to something.

    Just in.....the Broker has contacted the owner, who confirms the draft IS 5 feet.

    I think I need to take a skeet.

    It is not unknown for owners to be wrong about boat details, even draught. Take a tape measure, if ashore. All the details I have from three separate sources say 5' 8", 5' 9" or 1.75M which is near-as-dammit 5' 9", and none mention optional shallow keels.

    Yes...she's afloat....trying to think of a way of checking without leaving the pontoon, and without having to jump in!

    Yes.....I've not seen any mention anywhere else of a shoal draft option.

    Does 9" really make a difference? No smutty replies please.
    Next time, it'll all be different.

    Depends where you're starting from: I'd really like no more than 4 feet of draft for the shallow bits of coast I now frequent. I've set 5 foot as an admittedly subjective limit.
