This is a true rough water vessel able to set out and stay out safely in pretty bad weather. Construction is 6-8mm 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 design  for longlining, cray (lobster) fishing or as a small  trawler. A simple, economical, comfortable, safe, profitable vessel with excellent resale value as a Chris Williams design. Variations would make an excellent Expedition Yacht for World voyaging.
