Powered by a Gardner 6LX 150HP Marine Diesel, Twin Disc 509 Gearbox Everything is Built Tough, Coupled to a 3 Bladed Prop via a 2" Stainless Shaft.
Following Her Life as a Pilot Boat, a Neat Conversion Was Undertaken Resulting in a Cruising Boat for 2 Plus, or an Amazing Dayboat For Larger Groups With The Safety of Wide Wakaround Decks and a Large Covered Rear Deck. The Gardner was Rebuilt And With a Range of 600 nm She Will Offer Her New Owner Years of Fun/Adventure.
