The Paine Express Cruiser is famous for a particularly soft riding bottom, with sharp entry angles forward fairing to more modest deadrise at the transom.  This is a more efficient and easier planing shape than the "deep vee" and is far more comfortable when anchored in a swell or traveling at displacement speeds. In-house software enables accurate prediction of the planing performance; speed, trim angles, propeller sizing and powering requirements.
