The (17’4″ LOA, 7′ beam) is built with a spacious, versatile cockpit area that offers comfortable seating for seven people. Anglers will order the optional fishing package which includes a bait well, rod holders and below gunwale storage. A variety of tops are available, and custom colors and hull-side treatments are standard.
The Rossiter 17 CC is built on a hand-laid fiberglass hull with a molded, foam-filled stringer grid. Structural closed-cell foam cores are used where needed to provide the necessary panel stiffness in liners, decks and transoms. Liners are bonded to the stringer grid, topsides and transom, independent of the deck assembly, which is glued and bolted to the sheer. This method provides a very solid feel to the boat and enhances the ride delivered by the hull shape. The company is so confident of the quality built into each and every hull, Rossiter’s Limited Lifetime Warranty ensures owners years of low maintenance fun.
Built at company headquarters in Markdale, Ontario, Canada, the 17 CC is powered by a 90-hp outboard engine and is quick to plane for cruising or water sports. When fully loaded the 17 CC has a range of 100 miles at 30 mph. Step up to a 115-hp engine and run past 48 mph at top speed.
