Boat’s interior was finished by Kaz Zatec (European Custom Yachts). All joiner work is mahogany, finished in the old world fashion. The interior of this boat is unsurpassed. This craftsmanship is of the highest boat building quality.

Home ports were on Grosse Ile, MI. GIYC & FYC, and Cheboygan, MI at the Duncan Bay Boat Club (DBBC).
