Powerboat Guide Says

An appealing weekend retreat, proof that good boats don't have to cost a fortune. Many features- anchor windlass, generator, air conditioning, etc. that are options on other boats, are standard equipment here. Updated in 2000, the cabin floor was lowered and the foredeck was raised, resulting in increased cabin headroom. Changes in 2002 included a revised floorplan, extended swim platform, increased fuel capacity. Note, walkthrough windshield and electric engine hatch.
