Classic, traditional styling and exceptional performance, are the culmination of many years of design and refinements. This particular “style” of craft excels in performance, functionality, and seaworthiness. The wide beam, flared bow with a fine entry, and the transom tumblehome are characteristic of the type. Paraphrasing the words of Buddy Davis, one of the best boat builders in that style, we can say that this boat is designed to cut through head seas, run on rails in following, breaking seas, and lie still while drifting in deep troughs waiting for a strike. With its deep, narrow entry, this type of hull doesn’t pound, it slices. Thanks to its skeg, impossible to manufacture in an open mold fiberglass boat, it never wanders, it tracks.
