Bow thruster Vetus 85 Kgf

full length shallow keel

port aft, note the shine,

and the clever wedges out of each chine section aft, which widen her buoyancy platforms aft, and apparently help reduce Wash.

wide canoe stern, with swim ladder just the other side of the auxillary bracket, Note auxillary bracket up on aft rails also,

semi tunneld drive helos reduce down angle to shaft and increase efficiency as well as keeping draught to a minimum.

stainless steel shoe under prop from keel end to rudder helps prevent rope or weed fouling,
