Rather, it's a boat that is super comfortable, has good guest quarters (their own head and shower) A fair turn of speed (10 to 20 knots), and suits the Southern Cal region to a tee. (Long distances to any of the offshore islands.)
We cruise her at 10 knots but she will easily run all day at 17 knots. When the sea gets a little "bumpy" adding a little coal in the ER tends to smooth things out nicely.
Sister Ship (this boat has a down helm which we did not want. Ours has a dinette in that location, side x side twin beds in the guest SR & a hard top on the fly bridge.)
