  • The surface to the inner hull makes cleaning easier and provides a better finish.
  • The structure of the hull with the inner moulding provides housing for the diesel and water tanks in the central part, enabling an optimised weight ratio and giving excellent control of the longitudinal stability of the boat.
  • The stainless steel propeller shaft is fitted to and protected by a skeg in the GRP hull.
