The bulwarks on the entire boat have been raised and combined with a larger, extended wheel house, resulting in a longer, sleeker overall profile line. In addition, the integrated swim step has been extended, the hull is one-piece hand laid-up, and a deep keel provides a soft ride and excellent seakeeping abilities.
