The exciting new Fortier 33 is an honest sea boat for fishing and cruising. A proven design by Eldridge-McInnis, she is an outsanding fiberglass boat. Her design and construction make the Fortier 33 comfortable in any weather. The molded-in keel and spray rails offer exceptional stability and give the boat a soft, dry entry into the water.
The construction of the Fortier 33 is unique to the industry in that experienced craftsmen have laid layers of fiberglass over a Core-Cell® foam core. The result is a very quiet ride, while insulating her against the contrasting cold water and warm air temperatures. The stringers run from bulkhead to transom. The quality of materials and workmanship make the Fortier 33 the stiffest hull in her class.
The Fortier 33 has quickly become the most striking boat on the water today. The redesigned, opening port windows adds a classic Down East flair, providing the Fortier 33 with standout beauty.
The Fortier 33 boasts amenities generally found only in much larger boats, yet in a manageable and economical size. Capable of The Great Loop, the Fortier 33 provides live aboard comfort with four distinct areas. The massive cockpit and bridge deck with settee provide for comfortable living and entertaining, particularly with the popular and distinctive picnic boat style aft bench seat. Down below features a large V-berth that can be enclosed as a stateroom. A dinette with settee can ve converted to a second berth. There is a fully enclosed head with shower, and full stand up galley with a double, stainless steel sink, a two-burner butane stove and refrigerator. Opening ports and Bomar hatches forward provide excellent ventilation to the blow-decks living areas. Custom teak is used throughout the boat for trim, including the windshield and rub rails. Teak is generously used down below as in any classy yacht.
The engine room holds standard twin inboard Volvo Diesels that economically produce a cruising speed of 23+ knots and top speed of approximately 29 knots. The engine room is accessible by a large hatch that lifts hydraulically. For daily service, a small center hatch is manually removable to make routine tasks a breeze to complete. The real excitement comes with the optional Volvo Inboard Propulsion System (IPS). This system boasts greater economy, speed (up to 32 knots), improved maneuverability (including joy stick docking) and unparalleled quickness.
The Fortier 33 lends itself to customizing. Although generally used for cruising, it is often equipped to provide the ultimate fishing experience. The Fortier 33 is often imitated, but as with all Fortier boats, maintains an incredible loyal following.
