The hull is made
from Corten Steel and the superstructures are made from Aluminum. This combination makes this boat nearly rust proof. Fresh
ultrasound proves she is in great condition.
This boat has three main cabins. The forward
cabin which can sleep two, the main galley cabin which also has the head, and the rear cabin which can sleep up to 4 and also
could be converted to a decompression chamber for diving. The boat has a total of nine watertight compartments including the
