SeaVee 370Z

In Pursuit of Perfection

FSF Staff February 19, 2015

From the leader in high performance center consoles comes the exhilarating SeaVee 370Z. The all-new design fills the gap between SeaVee’s extremely popular 340 and 390 series and features an innovative stepped hull that recalibrates the industry standard for performance and efficiency. Born from offshore racing technology, SeaVee perfected the twin stepped hull through the use of proprietary computer modeling. The design was further processed by a computational fluid dynamics computer model previously only utilized by NASA and the U.S. Navy. The 370Z was then validated and optimized through intensive testing in real-world scenarios. The end result is a thoroughbred 37 footer like no other in existence.

To achieve peak performance, the 370Z incorporates multiple lifting bodies with a unique geometry that results in a fixed running angle. The lifting bodies, along with the meticulously engineered weight distribution arrangement, ensure the optimum angle of attack for maximum hull lift with minimum resistance regardless of speed or sea condition. The cross-ventilated twin stepped hull further enhances efficiency with an augmented four-port air induction system that produces and maintains the necessary air cavities that substantially reduce drag. The result is greater speed and fuel efficiency. The boat simply accelerates as power is applied, with no dangerous bow rise or undesirable bow dipping. In essence, the 370Z has two inherent gears that allow it to achieve remarkable performance throughout a range of speeds. In fact, the 370Z can remain on plane at only 18 knots!

Handling characteristics of the 370Z are amazing. Improved directional stability at any speed is achieved through Speed Rails that produce the appropriate counter force to hard maneuvering that could cause a conventional stepped hull boat to hook, or otherwise lose control. High speed turns produce opposing concentrated pressure on the Speed Rails, safely keeping the boat tracking in the desired direction.

Fostering overall performance is a cored hull design that reduces weight, yet offers incredible strength and rigidity. Durable Core-Cell M130 structural foam is sandwiched between fiberglass panels to form a stiff, yet super strong and lightweight laminate with similar strength properties of an industrial I-beam structure.

With various seating options, the 370Z is designed for practically any activity on the water. Tournament anglers will appreciate the massive insulated fishbox with option for two additional insulated fishboxes. Dual longitudinal transom live wells are standard with an option for two additional in-deck wells. SeaVee’s revolutionary pump system keeps bait healthy by eliminating the aeration problem associated with stepped hull boats, while a dedicated transducer pad allows for flush mounting of commercially rated transducers capable of reading bottom in deep water while underway.

Of course, families will enjoy retractable forward jump seats, an aft cockpit seat, freshwater shower and enclosed head. And everyone benefits from the large center console that can house a wide range of offshore electronics and entertainment solutions. SeaVee Boats, 305.759.6419, seaveeboats.com
