FMB - Fast Motor Boat is cruiser extraordinaire Steve Dashew's idea for a fast, ocean going motor boat. Built in aluminium and unpainted she has the look of a fast naval frigate.

As a fast and practical long range cruising yacht I think it's a fantastic and highly practical design.

Even the dinghy is aluminium.


  1. There are two of these in Whangarei Town Basin at the moment - they look good. Long and lean means that they are easily driven making them relatively fuel efficient. I took some photos a couple of days ago of one of these transiting our new lift up bridge - now there's an idea for a blogpost!

  2. Interesting, and looks good, but what's that fly bridge about? It looks like they went to B&Q and bought a bargain conservatory .....

  3. FPB 83.

    Fast Passage Boat:
    220nm daily, consistently, through any weather, or safely transitioning around undesirable weather.
