Manufacturer Provided Description

The shape of her hull depicts a vessel with authority and agility, easily propelled through the water regardless of the conditions. The balanced spade rudder and beavertail keel provide the appropriate directional and lateral stability to maintain control under all circumstances, while her steering ability is as responsive as a boat 5 feet shorter and several thousand pounds lighter. 

The use of innovative materials and methods for construction fabricate strong, light and well-insulated hull and deck structures. Laminated from the highest grade NPG-isophthalic gel coat, vinylester and polyester resins and unidirectional "E" glass, locally reinforced with Kevlar on a balsa core, she yields a high strength-to-weight ratio. Extensive framing, structural floor timbers, and full structurally-bonded bulkheads further maintain her hull rigidity, while allowing for greater load carrying ability. 

... Suited for serious cruising by a crew or a couple, her masthead rig and lines are designed for easy handling. Main halyard, reefs, and mainsheet are lead aft, while the genoa and optional spinnaker halyard are led to a winch located to the starboard side of the mast. Her electric main halyard winch, oversized sail-handling winches, cockpit adjustable genoa lead and Harken Batslide mainsail system are just a few of the many thoughtful touches standard with her design.


From forward to aft:

Master cabin forward with centerline berth.  The ensuite head is to port with shower and Corian topped vanity.

Main saloon with port and starboard settees and centerline dropleaf table. There is a bulkhead mounted TV on the forward bulkhead to port

Outward facing navigation station next to starboard. The electrical panels, Inverter/charger, and wind generator controls are located here.

Across and aft to port is the inline galley. It features inboard stainless steel sink and open counter space with the stove, refrigeration, freezer outboard. The microwave is in a locker outboard aft. Counters are Corian. There is plenty of galley storage with cabinets and dry locker.
