This boat is unique; being an older boat, in this case, is not a disadvantage -the fiberglass hull is thick and strong — new ones are thin as a clorox bottle and have about that much style and personality. This fine boat is pre-production (totally hand made so has a lot of extras)

• Enclosed head w/ teak louvered door, holding tank with Y valve.
• Galley: gimbaled 2-burner alcohol stove; 5 cu ft ice box; SS sink, sink, fresh water tank w/ electric pump.
