This version was designed by John Welch and broke with tradition by offering the main living accommodation in the rear cabin with its very generous beam. The galley and dinette berth fit well in the aft cabin. 115 of these craft were built. The shallow to medium V hull has a long shallow keel making the boat suitable for inland or coastal cruising. It was normally fitted with a single or twin BMC, Ford or Perkins diesel. Top speed was tested at 12 knots.
