Cutwater 302 Sport Coupe

An all-weather family boat.

by Chris Caswell
Based on the very successful Cutwater 30 family cruiser, the 302 Sport Coupe is an express-cruiser with an open and airy styling that provides the best of all worlds.

  • Beam: 10'
  • Draft:
  • Weight: 10,200 lbs.
  • Fuel Capacity: 300 gals.
  • Water Capacity: 80 gals.

In good weather, open the large side and forward windows for fresh air, while still maintaining protection from the sun by the fiberglass hardtop. If the weather turns iffy, you can button up the soft enclosure aft to make the 302 Sport Coupe a truly all-weather family boat. Add the heating/air conditioning option and you can extend your season by months!

The cockpit is set up for fishing, with more than ample space for several anglers plus a 30-gallon livewell, a large fish box, rod holders and a sink. The Euro-style galley is ready to prep those fish for dinner with a propane stove/oven, a microwave, a sink and a fridge. You can also opt for a barbecue in the cockpit. 

When it comes to overnighting, the 302 has the comfort level of a much larger yacht; forward is the island berth with memory foam, and midcabin is a 6-foot, 8-inch berth. A fully enclosed head features a shower and an electric head.

Certainly one of the most unique features on the 302 Sport Coupe is up forward, where two flush hatches open to become cushioned and safe observation seats. The bow also features a central lounge; it’s the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner while at anchor.

Cutwater is a most unusual builder, as they refuse to nickel-and-dime buyers with long lists of options that most boaters want. Instead, the basic 302 Sport Coupe has a lengthy list of standard equipment that includes bow and sternthrusters, two TVs with DVD players, an electric head, an inverter, an anchor windlass with both bow and cockpit controls, 30-amp shorepower, galley appliances and much more. 

Standard power for the 302 Sport Coupe is a pair of Yamaha 300-hp counter-rotating outboards, which, with the twin-step hull, allow for speeds over 50 mph. Proprietary Laminar Flow interrupter hull design provides smooth and positive cornering at all speeds.

“The new 302 Sport Coupe is an exciting addition to the Cutwater line,” says Rich Larsen, general manager at Manitowoc Marina. “This boat is set up to get you where you want to go quickly and comfortably. With overnight accommodations for up to six, this cruiser can easily be your home on the water.”
