10 Meter Express
Length w/ Pulpit:
First of Trojans popular Euro-style International series, the 10 Meter Express was something of a breakthrough design when she was introduced in 1981. Boldly styled and featuring all-new modular construction, the experts had a field day with this boat, calling her too wide and too glitzy for the conservative American market. Nevertheless, she quickly captured the publics imagination and soon became a marketing success. Hull construction is solid fiberglass, and she rides on a beamy DeltaConic hull with moderate transom deadrise. Below, the original, somewhat gaudy interior was toned down in later years, but her Mediterranean styling, curved bulkheads, and distinctive decor were soon copied by other manufacturers. Notable features include electrically operated sliding doors to the head and forward cabin, a big bi-level cockpit with an offset companionway, teak covering boards, side-dumping exhausts, and a curved cockpit windshield. Engine access is good compared with other express boats this size. Standard 350hp gas engines cruise the Trojan 10 Meter at 1920 knots with a top speed of around 28 knots.
