Frwd Accommodation            four
Speed                                   10 knots with 220 SHP which is operating voyage speed also

At 10 knots the fuel consumption for a modern engine would be less than 4 litres per mile (less than 40 litres per hour) which gives a range at constant top speed of better than 2500 miles. Of course the range is even greater at less speed.

Fish holding configuration can be two brine tanks with ice room/ freezer frwd of that or lobster tanks aft of the ice room.

This is a true rough water vessel able to set out and stay out safely in pretty bad weather. Construction is 6mm th steel hull with 4-5mm th marine aluminium (marine aluminum) deckhouse. The bow sections are very deep and steep and these vessels can be driven into steep seas at full speed without pounding, even when the bow is driven through into open air.

You would be very happy indeed with this well proven vessel for longlining, cray (lobster) fishing or other passive fishing as a simple, economical, comfortable, safe, profitable vessel with excellent resale value as a Chris Williams design.
