This aluminium yacht built by Bendie Shipyards is designed by the American yacht designer C.W. Paine.
Not only can this strongly built CE-category A yacht cruise the French canals due to its low air draft, but it is also possible for it to make a transatlantic crossing at a cruising speed of 8 knots. The hull has a deep curved V-form through which there is little water displacement.
The interior is entirely custom built. For this trawler we have chosen a teak interior combined with white sprayed surfaces (old English style).

The large salon has an L-shaped dinette on the starboard side. As with all seagoing yachts, the ample steering position conveniently sited at the front of the salon has all the necessary apparatus for an adventure at sea.  The galley, which is U-shaped and fitted with all the modern conveniences, is well prepared for all conditions. The salon is fitted with large windows all round that let in lots of natural light, and can be entered from both port and starboard decks as well as through a door leading from the external steering position. 

with beds on port and starboard sides and a desk for studying charts or writing. The entrance to the engine room is via a stairway amidships.
The external steering position is above the aft cabin and has a U-shaped bench seat.

The trawler is fitted with two 135 hp Perkins Sabre engines. The two diesel tanks, with a total capacity of 5260 liters, can be cleaned separately using a Fuel Polishing System. With 5260 liters of fuel and a cruising speed of 8.5 knots it is possible to cover a distance of 2000 miles.

In the engine room, where much attention has been given to acoustic and thermal insulation, there is a generator and a hydraulic unit for the stabilisers. The Mastervolt apparatus, in combination with the six 200 Ah gel batteries, provides for sufficient electrical current on board.

Through the facilities on board, the excellent sailing properties and the large fuel tanks it is possible to stay away from home for a considerable time and to cover great distances.
