a 17' outboard cruiser
The SEA KNIGHT has full accommodations for cruising; head, berths, and cooking facilities. The extra large cockpit provides sleeping bag space for additional sleepers. In the cabin, a convenient cabinet converts to a semi-enclosed toilet room. On the opposite side of the cabin is the galley with sink and stove space. In the bulkhead is a pass-through opening that provides service to the galley area. All in all, the SEA KNIGHT has all the features of the king sized outboard cruiser, and yet is an ideal length for easy trailering.
The SEA KNIGHT requires very little power for acceptable performance, and larger motors can be used if you want to tow skiers. The motor well design is such that the motor is virtually concealed from view and yet readily accessible. The SEA KNIGHT makes a nice boat for all water sport activities, including fishing, diving, and water skiing.
