A heavy displacement cruiser in the style of government vessels built to patrol BC waters in the late 1950’s. Designed for heavy sawn or bent frame wooden construction, she could also be economically built of steel. Accommodation includes a large pilothouse with raised dining/observation seat, and galley and saloon in the aft section of the deckhouse. Galley and engine room each have separate entrances from the deck. A small aft cabin can serve as a workshop, crew or guest cabin, or ships office. Forward on the lower deck is a full width owner’s suite under the pilothouse, and a guest cabin forward.
