Owner's art work and personal possessions
HERCULES was designed and fabricated for serious voyaging and living aboard. The Molokai Strait 75' is inspired by the Romsdahl fishing trawlers of Romsdahl Norway. This type of design is characterized by a relatively clear foredeck, a superstructure set amidships to aft and a rounded,"cruiser", stern.
The hull is a heavy displacement type with a bulbous bow to reduce resistance. The hullform is designed for generous interior volume with standing headroom in the engine room.
HERCULES reflects the exquisite taste of it's owner. There is a keen attention to detail that gives both guests and crew a comfortable long range cruise.
