A fine looking, heavy displacement yacht with owners cabin aft and usually two staterooms forward. Two full heads. Large boat deck provides shade and room for good sized tender. The bridge steering is well aft, giving a good ride in head seas. Usually has twin 135-hp Lehman diesels. But some have larger Cat engines. Excellent range with 950 gallons of fuel and 500 water. Earlier models were built in Taiwan in CTF yard. Later models built in mainland China. Currently in limited production.
