    Default Loxo 32.

    What do we think of the Loxo 32?

    http://www.pogostructures.com/en/loxo-32-en/

    There's a lot to like about it, the low speed planing is nice, I wonder how the transition from D to P is.

    interesting boat. God its no weight at all!

    First thoughts are I quite like it, inside seems a odd layout, in my similar length boat my layout and interior looks far bigger and that is saying something as half my boat is cockpit. But then I am burning 1.75L/nm at 11knots as opposed to 0.5 L/nm at 10knots.

    I wonder what she would be like in a chop. Would be very interesting to see, she looks like she might get a bit bouncy.

    My other thought.... we better all embrace these sorts of boats, or we might all have to turn to sailing.

    My first impression is it’s like a Greenline, ie yachtlike sans keel and mast. A lot has been written that this makes a rocky boat but I don’t know if it’s true. When length of boat is everything most people go for a fat wallowy boat because 9.5 m can get you a lot of live aboard space. To me, she is perfect for someone who likes to take their boat out everyday which makes the fuel bill rise.

    Re Pogo sailing boats a friend had a Pogo 30 for a while. He could get 23knots if windy enough in racing trim.
    Very much a no frills builder (no pun)

    that's quick! no frills, no weight.. certainly not to be sniffed at.

    Kind of has a MacGregor feel about it minus the flappy bits.

    Funniest thing I’ve seen is one of those overtake a yacht at full whack off Egypt point. The helm turned to holla but nothing came out

    Yeah but the MacGregor was an oddity and pile of crap.

    I see the Loxo as ideal for a commuter in inshore waters, if you lived in a Nordic archipelago and commuted it would be fab.

    The green line is a lot more than a sailboat without a keel or rig
    Its very definitely a motorboat hull, with shaft drive propulsion. The 33 (their first model) was pretty good but subsequent models are excellent.
    Pick of the range is the 48 which is a proper long range cruising motor yacht

    I think it looks great although a terrible helm position. However if you want it to be a cruiser you have to add so much kit and extra features it will loose all the performance.
