Surtees boats are designed to be non-pounding, stable and comfortable. The super smooth ride is the result of combining two innovative design features - the Surtees Non-Pounding Super Deep V Hull and the Surtees Original Stabilising Technology:
Non-Pounding Super Deep V Hull
All Surtees boats feature the
uniquely designed Non-Pounding Super Deep V Hull. The benefits are numerous and all result in a comfortable
ride for all on board.
The super smooth ride is the
result of a very fine-entry hull, variable to 15-20 degrees deadrise at the stern,
allowing you to cut effortlessly through choppy water. Even in the toughest conditions you’ll
be able to hold your course with ease and without the unpleasant pounding.
A deep V hull design would
usually mean you have to trade off stability while the boat is at rest, but
Surtees have overcome this with their Original Stabilising Ballast Technology
to make sure you’ve not only got a great handling boat but also a boat that
rests smooth and stable at anchor.
Stabilising Ballast Technology
Typically, a non-pounding hull
that rides smoothly through rough seas comes at the price of stability at rest.
But thanks to the genius
Stabilising Ballast Technology that runs along the keel line, it’s not a
As the boat comes to rest, the ballast tank
fills and steadies the boat. It
then drains as the boat starts to move forward and empties in less than 5
The result is maximum stability at rest,
which provides more comfort for you and your crew and allows you to move around
the cockpit safely.
In rough conditions the shut off gate can be
sealed to retain the ballast water, making the boat heavier, to give you a much
smoother non-pounding ride and extra stability.
For every litre of water there is
approximately 1kg of stability ballast in each Surtees boat. The ballast tank
capacity varies according to the hull size, from 210 litres on
a 4.85 up to 330 litres on
a 7.3. So whichever Surtees model you get, that’s a lot of ballast making a
huge difference to your boat stability.

Strengthened Deck System
Surtees Boats have one of the toughest hull
designs in the world. They are non-flexing and made using only the highest
marine grade alloy. The Surtees
design features 6 welded under floor stringers that run the length of the hull,
creating the Strengthened Deck System, which is renowned for its superior
strength and durability.
Surtees are known for their high safety
standards, so it’s no surprise that the Strengthened Deck System also features
2 large air chambers to provide floatation. The air chambers run the length of the hull and are pressure
tested at the factory to make certain they are 100% airtight for maximum safety.
Unique Trailer Catch
All Surtees trailers come with a unique
trailer catch allowing you to drive off and single-handed. There’s no winching and you don’t even
have to get your feet wet.

6-Year Worldwide Hull Warranty
Surtees Boats have never had a structural
hull failure because they are simply designed and built to last. We are so
confident of this we happily offer a 6 year worldwide hull warranty on all of
