More shots to come shortly but here are a  few to start with..

ashore 12th September 2019 at Hythe, what purposeful lines.

few had the bow thruster fitted, so thats a nice addition on this one

Deep skeg keel with interesting central Canoe hull and flatter sections outside.

This shape was proved so successful in the Corvette hull, it was bound to be even better when scaled up.

I have moved a few of these boats in horrible weather, including waiting for force 7 off the needles, so

commercial pilots could evaluate the hull for use off Harwich docks. They loved her, and especially her stability at slow speed in big seas.

Sadly they wanted too many alterations to the deck arrangement to make it financially possible for the builders, but the performance in bad weather they loved!

Hull Polished , smart off white gelcoats

bigger shot of aft end, exhaust outlets kicked out so most exhaust does not vortex up behind the transom .

Twin ram tabs. very nice extra to have a stern thruster as well..
