This is a boat designed to maximize living space for two people. It has large separate head and shower compartments, it is built on one level, no climbing up on narrow gunwales to go forward for anchoring or line handling when passing through locks. It does not have an expensive diesel engine(s); instead it is propelled by quiet, smooth outboards that provide an easy 22-26 knot cruise speed.
Extraordinary safety and convenience: Explorers are available in a number of length/beam combinations. The 34 and 36x12.5 with a salon width of nine feet is specifically designed for the size slips commonly found along the Loop. This configuration allows for almost eighteen inches of width on the side decks, more than enough room to move quickly from one end of the boat to the other, with approximately thigh high freeboard for safety, plus an optional bow and side rail for additional security.
