The Edge is built with a solid hull and a cored deck joined on outward flange and through bolted. Structural hull support is provided by a molded grid system that runs throughout the hull. With towing a central aspect of the design premise, Luhrs and his team gave careful consideration to keeping the overall weight down. This is where water ballast makes sense, it’s not permanent weight that needs to be hauled down the Interstate. The towing weight is less than 5,000 pounds and the Edge can be pulled behind a decent sized pickup or SUV. Once you get to the ramp, the flat powerboat hull shape is easy to launch. The 33-foot air draft translates into a manageable mast section of around 28 feet. The mast doesn’t require a crane or gin pole to be stepped, but it sure helps.
Interior, "Sailing" magazine evaluation
The interior of the Edge is remarkable—it’s hard to believe that you’re in a 27-foot trailerable boat. A legitimate double berth is located aft of the companionway ladder, tucked under the cockpit. The small but functional galley is to starboard and includes a stainless steel sink and icebox. A one-burner stove and pressurized water are desirable options. The head is opposite with a practical and green porta potty standard. A through-hull marine head is an option.
The saloon features a centerline table that conceals the centerboard trunk housing and twin facing settees. There’s another double berth forward. There is not much built-in storage, but the boat needs to be light both for performance and trailerability. The interior is bright, thanks to the large portlights and light-colored finish and fabrics.
