Cutwater C-302 Coupe

Built for three-season cruising.

by Craig Ritchie
Blending the comfortable layout of its popular C-30 Sedan with the performance of a double-stepped hull with patented laminar flow interrupter technology, Cutwater Boats’ new C-302 Coupe is a fast, capable cruiser that’s ideal for exploring the Great Lakes.


  • LOA: 30'
  • Beam: 10'
  • Draft: 26"/30"
  • Weight: 9,800 lbs.
  • Fuel Capacity: 300 gals.
  • Water Capacity: 80 gals.

  • Price: $309,937

The high-performance hull and twin 300-hp outboards allow the C-302 Coupe to achieve a top speed of 53 mph while delivering impressive fuel economy. Throttling back to 25 mph and 3500 rpm still brings cruisers to their destination with plenty of time to spare while enjoying even better fuel economy of 1.34 mpg and a range of more than 400 miles. That kind of performance is appealing boaters who value the ability to go anywhere on the lakes.

Step aboard via the large rear swim platform and transom door, and the large aft cockpit speaks to the C-302 Coupe’s versatility. The anglers in your crew will love its open space, 30-gallon livewell, large fish boxes, rod holders and sink, while the entertainers in the family will enjoy the generous seating space and Kenyon electric barbecue grill. The cockpit also can be conveniently served by the full galley located just inside the salon. 

“The enclosed salon on the C-302 Coupe provides an added level of protection when cruising during inclement weather,” says Rich Larsen, president of Manitowoc Marina. “It’s also more comfortable when cruising early or late in the year.”

The attractive helm console provides plenty of space to accommodate large flush-mount touch displays, along with controls for the standard bow and stern thrusters. Built for cruising, the C-302 includes thoughtful appointments like bow and helm controls for the stainless steel windlass, and a 2,000-watt sine wave inverter to power accessories without generator noise. An audiophile Fusion stereo comes standard, along with two TVs with DVD players located in the salon and master suite. A comfortable island berth with memory foam awaits in the spacious master stateroom. If need be, the boat can sleep up to six people on three separate berths, providing privacy and comfort on extended cruises.
