The two-part console separates the climate-conrolled helm from the sitting area. The cockpit features mezzanine seating with plenty of storage and a windowed fish box/livewell. Below deck the boat features four bunks and a full head and shower. The hull, sides, cabin, decks and boxes are made of state-of-the-art composite foam, and the bottom is constructed of laminates of marine grade plywood with full-length stringers and chines made of Douglas Fir. Everything is glassed inside and out with muliple layers of 18-ounce fiberglass using West Systems, and finished off with AWLgrip products.
