This design is comfortable, functional, and beautiful. As you get to know her you notice all the big and small design genius that can only be imagined and implemented by a real boater. She is a real boat designed by a real boater to go out into the real world and provide comfort and protection to those of us that just want to reach out a little.
The central drain system that drains to one location under the swim platform eliminates all those water stain streaks down the hull. The separate drinking water system is no small benefit. Again, a real boater designing a boat. The high railing around the entire boat allows safe deck movement in real conditions. Two heavy duty windlasses and two sets of ground tackle.
Real Storage for the things we really need on a real boat trip. Two generators in case one goes down in the Exumas. No Problem. Ease of movement attributed to the proven Pilothouse design and the extra effort David Marlow designed right in. Overhead and recessed hand railings. They are in the right places because they actually understand how we need to move through the vessel. The design is purposefully clean and simple to minimize toe grabbers and head bangers.
The bottom line is that the boat works. This owner has those pleasant surprises when he says “I understand why they did that” and “That really helps the way they did that”. If you want to go places in safety and comfort, THIS BOAT is ready to go.
