Hull and Deck

This is a ruggedly built vessel - and well thought out for cruising.  Her large aft deck is ideal for setting up chairs and relaxing either underway or at a mooring.  From the aft deck is there is easy access to the swim platform.

Good walk around side decks make it easy to move fore and aft, and her foredeck allows for easy handling of lines or ground tackle.

The boat has a distinctive nautical look with her functional Pilot house, well proportioned Salon, and even a smoke stack ( non functional).  Beautiful fore and aft pulpits add to the Nautical flavor and provide a good measure of safety.

The hull has a factory color molded into the gel coat that avoids the scratches of boats with painted hulls.

She is designed for protected water cruising or offshore passages,
