  • Hull type: Semi-displacement, hard chine hull with bulbous bow and reverse curve at chine forward. Efficient speed range to 10 knots. Triple diagonal cold-molded plywood or solid wood on bottom to 1 1/8" thick, and double diagonal plywood or wood on sides to 3/4" thick, fiberglass or comparably sheathed. "One-off" fiberglass hull construction optional.
  • Power: Single diesel motor of approximately 145 continuous shaft horsepower with suitable reduction gear. Twin motors may be used, but are not as practical or economical, and hence not recommended.
  • Can the hull be extended or shortened? Yes; Up to 10% by re-spacing the frames from the aft end of the stem to the transom a proportional amount. We do not recommend increasing the beam.
