hull is based on the successful Deep V hull design of the rest of the
Interceptor range but has been developed into a unique twin reverse chine
design, offering significant seakeeping and performance advantages over
conventional craft. Her wide 13ft 10” beam makes her exceptionally stable with
a high GM and impressive GZ curve. Her deep, full length keel provides
directional stability as well as good attitude to the wind in drift. It also
provides protection to the stern gear and allows for a
large diameter propeller to be turned in big single engine installations

sections forward ensure that she can maintain speed into steep head seas without
slamming and her large freeboard means her decks always stay dry. She has been
fitted out to a very high standard for a commercial vessel, with a large
luxurious main cabin with seating for 10 persons as well as a comprehensive
galley and cooking facilities. Her fore cabin has a large double berth as well
as a large shower / heads compartment.
