17' Runabout

 

For years proud owners of our Rossiter 14 power boat have asked if we would build a runabout with the same classic look, fit and finish and unbeatable soft, dry ride that thrives in big water … but with a little more room and horsepower. So we created the Rossiter 17 Runabout knowing that some people want the protection of a full windshield and canvas.We also took full advantage of the latest in computer-aided design and 3D modeling to ensure that the hull performance and engineering delivered the stability, performance and sea-keeping characteristics you’ve come to expect from a Rossiter power boat, thus delivering the ride of something much bigger but with tremendous efficiency and speed.Powered by either 90 or 115 horses, this new Rossiter can take the whole family out for a day of picnicking and waterskiing or haulsupplies back and forth with ease in almost any weather … all the while looking and acting like nothing else on the water. And surprising to most, with a 90hp engine our Rossiter 17 jumps out of the water, with a full load with little to no bow rise and delivers over 100 miles of range on 27 gallons of fuel at 30 mph cruising speed. And if you want speed, she can deliver 43-50mph depending on your horsepower preference.
