To maximise foredeck working area the superstructure is positioned well aft and unusually for this size of vessel is split over two levels with the wheelhouse on the upper deck above the saloon. On the port side of the foredeck a hydraulic marine crane is provided and on the aft deck, same side, there is a davit for man overboard recovery.
There is seating for twelve passengers in the saloon at deck level and includes galley, mess and head with shower. There are two cabins with berth below deck, each accommodating two persons

The efficient catamaran hull form was developed after extensive testing and claims to offer good sea keeping characteristics, safe handling and low fuel consumption.

The twin hulled vessel has a LOA of 62 ft (18.9 m), beam of 23.6 ft (7.2 m) and draft of 4.6 ft (1.4 m). Twin 22 liter V12 Doosan 4V222TI diesel engines with a medium rating of 647 kW (880 bhp) at 2,100 rpm , are coupled via a vee drive ZF 2000V gearbox. Each shaft powers a five blade fixed pitch propeller of 34.5 inch (876 mm) diameter to achieve a service speed of 24 kn
