The Longreach Expedition hull features a reverse bow to extend the waterline out as far as possible to maximise efficiency, while also providing a wave piercing effect for a smooth ride at speed. The chines at the waterline ensure a dry boat, while under the waterline the hull features two docking keels to enable safe beaching while also protecting the running gear. The hull is a full displacement hull but designed to motor at cruise speeds of 12 knots, or top speeds of around 25 knots. The Expedition comes standard with long range tanks totalling up to 5,600 litres of diesel providing more than 2,000 miles range at 11.5 knots and a top speed of 20 knots.
Helm & Flybridge
The flybridge is super social, with a massive lounging area, dining table, wet bar with fridge / freezer included. The Expedition features a fully enclosed flybridge with pop-up TV and air-conditioning with dinghy crane on the aft deck
While the helm has twin seats with full support, a full suite of electronics at your fingertips and the wheel and throttle controls from the centre allowing you to stand when berthing. Either side of the helm seats are more lounging seats – people will just gravitate to these areas, plus forward steps to the front deck for easy access to the bow.
The Saloon features a chef’s sized galley with upright double door fridge, dish-washer, stove & microwave convection oven. A breakfast bar opens out into the cockpit which enjoys a large dining area under full shade protection and BBQ.
