Clipper’s Hudson Bay sedan cruiser nears completion

The new Hudson Bay 50 comes together at the Clipper factory.

Clipper Motoryachts’ new-style Hudson Bay 50 sedan cruiser is nearing completion at the company’s factory under the watchful eye of Mark Campion and his team of British and Australian engineers, naval architects and boat builders.

According to Clipper Motoryachts Australia Managing Director Brett Thurley: “The new Hudson Bay 50 is everything we had hoped for.”

Thurley said the design of the Hudson Bay combined a layout and features that will focus on families getting away and staying on board while offering a comprehensive range of contemporary features.

“The design team spent a great deal of time and energy to ensure they combine the classic lines for which Clippers are renowned with the contemporary lifestyle aspects of a sedan cruiser,” he said.

“Many companies have produced a sedan style of motor yacht focussed on a ‘day boat’ layout, rendering the boat very one-dimensional.

“We have incorporated a wide range of standard features that reflect contemporary cruising and entertaining lifestyle including a combined teppanyaki and lava rock barbecue, sliding sunroof in the saloon to flood this area with air and light and large portlights in the hull that provide incredible light to the accommodation suite.”

Thurley said the company is preparing for an official launch in Sydney in early September – “just in time for the boating season,” he said.

The new Hudson Bay 50 is designed around a single-level family and entertaining area stretching from the aft cockpit protected by a generous overhang of the hard top through the galley and saloon and dinette.

The blue-water hull is constructed in solid hand-laid fibreglass below the waterline with cored fibreglass above. Deck and hardtop are infusion moulded with a honeycomb core to maintain strength while reducing weight.

The innovative hydraulic swim platform doubles as a stairway with only the centre section raising and lowering. It can be lowered to make swimming on and off the boat simpler or to launch a jet ski or tender.

The hybrid platform is “an Australian first” according to Thurley.

“Our new sedan range will offer Australian families the perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living and accommodation for weekends away,” he said.

“Every boat in the Hudson Bay range will combine gorgeous exterior styling that exudes class and timeless elegance with Clipper’s blue water cruising credibility. The hull design shares many features of the proven Cordova range, making it equally comfortable cruising at 12 knots or speeds up to 26 knots.”

Standard power is provided by optional twin Yanmar 480hp or Cummins 440hp turbo diesel engines. Vessel number one is powered by 600hp Cummins turbo diesels. The boats are also equipped with an Onan 11kW generator.
