     Imagine a versatile cruise/dive/fish boat that's engineered and built like an M-1 tank but handles like a Ferrari! Make no mistake this is a serious offshore cruiser whose mass soaks up pounding seas like a sponge for a smooth ride. You won't believe how safe a center console can feel in offshore conditions. Twin Yanmar turbo diesels 480-hp each are mounted well forward close to center of gravity, and they swing 23" props through running gear that is more commonly seen on commercial ships. The ruggedness and simplicity of the drive train and steering will get you out and back in the harshest conditions and the positioning of the engines makes this one of the most stable and nimble boats around. You'll be stunned as you steer her through hard carving turns and reversals with one finger on the wheel while she points and shoots like an advanced F-22 fighter. Hull construction is Kevlar and E-glass and is engineered and built for incredible strength. Another boat of this type was reportedly run aground onto solid rock at 40+ mph (not intentionally of course!) with cosmetic damage to the bottom and no hull puncture! With only a 28" draft and a hull built like this there's nowhere you can't go with your craft. The props are 40' back from the bow go ahead and beach her to explore uncharted islands. Engineers call a design "elegant" when so much care and thought has been given to it that every feature you might need is already there and right where you need it. The deck for example looks exactly like teak, but it's a far more durable non-skid synthetic material that's impervious to spills dropped scuba tanks or scuff marks. "Too hot for bare feet" you say? Not with the deck-area evaporative cooling system that uses ample condensate from the air-conditioner to supplement the water supply! And if you or the crew make a mess there are three strategically located freshwater coil hoses and even a permanently installed pressure wash system behind access doors! Need to do a little work over the side? There's no need to break out the scuba gear. A built-in compressor provides air to a "hookah" rig for up to four divers with 100' of hose. And don't worry about getting over the side or back in. A quick release Marlin door in the transom leads to a deck level powder-coated stainless-steel swim platform with a rugged 3-step fold-down ladder that won't tear off if you forget to stow it. To access the engines, slide the two forward console seats out of the tray (cleverly their bases are 150-qt igloo coolers) and lift and slide forward the waterproof engine hatch exposing the Yanmars. Similar hatches behind and around the console reveal the turbos engine coolant reservoirs the Halon fire system and more. The engines are controlled by aircraft-style FADEC (full authority digital engine control) single-levers. This is more often found on "state-of-the-art" fighter aircraft not sport fishers. The forward face of the console opens up to expose the backside of all the helm electronics and gear making maintenance much less of a hassle. Note that most of the hardware is mil-spec or aerospace grade. Every design feature of this boat speaks of ruggedness and strength. The sound system and other creature comforts make this boat an iron fist in a velvet glove. If you want the "Best of the Best" a "Beauty and the Beast" all in one, then have a look and prepare to fall in love. Accommodations V Berth Port and Starboard Seating Head with Shower Interior Lighting TV Stereo A/C Galley AC/DC Refrigerator 120V Microwave Synthetic countertops and stainless-steel sink Heavy duty blender Cockpit & Helm The navigation and control systems on the vessel are designed and built for ruggedness and redundancy.
