The unique quarterberth and spacious convertible dinette forward combine to sleep four owners and guests in comfort. Removable forward backrests easily turn the U-shaped dinette into a queen-size double berth with additional storage beneath.

The single 300-hp GM Penisular diesel and standard bow thruster make for superior economical operation while sacrificing nothing to a twin-engine design in terms of maneuverability.
