Builders roll out three new models

Hann Powerboats and Jay Pilini recently announced new models.

Hann announced the launch of its Blue Lightning 32 Catamaran by Hann.

The new addition to the Hann Powerboats line of center console boats has a 10-foot, 2- inch beam and an LOA of 32 feet. It draws 23 inches and comes standard with twin Mercury Optimax 300-hp engines. In initial sea trials, the boat showed a top speed of 73.3 mph in a sea state 2, burning 52 gallons of fuel an hour. The Hann 32 settled into a comfortable cruise speed of 65 mph with a fuel burn rate of 39 gallons an hour.

“The Hann 32 Catamaran serves as a family entertainment platform,” the company said in a statement. “Whether you want to get in a little fishing before the Saturday soccer game or you want to join the club rendezvous after the game, this boat will get you there on time.”

Hull No. 1 is already sold and will live in Lynnhaven Inlet, Virginia Beach, Va., the company said.

Jay Pilini, a designer and builder of high-performance sportboats and sportfishing boats, announced the introduction of two new entry-level enthusiast boats.

The Spectre Offshore’s new 15SS series is offered to customers who are looking for an affordable, flashy performance package, and the Spectre CV15 Sport Skiff offers clear polycarbonate panels in the hull, the company said.

“Each year we continue to improve the performance characteristics and styling of our boats, building on our reputation as a manufacturer who puts a lot of emphasis on quality and overall value,” Pilini said in a statement. “These two new offerings are perfect for the new boating environment.”
