These are turbo-charged, 4 cylinder, direct injection diesels with compressors and after coolers. She has DuoProp sterndrives. Trim tabs with Bennet indicators. She has a full beam aft permanent cabin and heads off the main saloon. The accommodation is surprisingly versatile. The steering is beautiful with strong performance at high speeds.

I have owned the boat for 3 1/2 years and have taken her across the Channel and along the South Coast. She has been totally reliable. She has been serviced annually using the same volvo specialist engineer for the last 5 years. Full receipts held for total engine rebuilds in 2013. She had engines and outdrives fully serviced in May 19 along with full antifoul and anodes.
