Rossiter Boats are coming to the Chesapeake! Well known in Ontario, New England and Florida but previously not here, the company builds an interesting combination of 14- to 23-foot powerboats and lovely 10- to 17-foot rowing boats. The newest offering is the R23 day boat. The R23 features a 22-degree variable deadrise on an all-composite hull. During a recent sea trial, the R23 jumped on plane quickly with little to no bow rise. Rigged with Yamaha’s new 200 XCA, the boat planed at 15 mph and delivered a top speed around 43 mph. At 20 mph in flat-calm conditions, fuel consumption was 3.7 gallons per hour; at 30 mph, 7 gallons.
