The boat was built in Norway in 1968-69 of welded aluminum construction. The boat weighs approximately 14,000 pounds (light and dry), and 20,000 pounds fueled and fully loaded with typical cruising gear. It has a hull length of 37 feet (41 with pulpit), a beam of 13 feet, 8 inches, and a draft of 32 inches at rest. The boat is 12 1/2 feet tall (air draft, above the water) with Bimini and antennas folded down. It is of typical Striker configuration, with a flybridge helm and a lower (levers only) station in the cockpit. Inside, a v-birth forward is followed by a lower cabin with upper and lower bunks on the starboard side. The head is on the port side aft of the v-birth. The main salon had a steering station on the starboard that was removed and relocated to the cockpit in 2003-04. The front windows were eliminated from the salon, and new 315 hp Yanmar 6LY-UTE propulsion engines were installed at this time. The galley is on the starboard side.
The forward salon windows have been removed and replaced with a forward-facing padded loveseat with storage under.
The interior helm station has been eliminated and a lever-only station has been added in the portside cockpit.
A removable aluminum dive platform has been attached to the stern. It is accessible through a lift-out transom door on the starboard stern.
A SCUBA tank rack has been constructed to fit over the fighting chair pedestal. It holds 10 SCUBA cylinders. It can be removed and replaced with a cocktail table or a classic Lee fighting chair (all three will be sold with the boat).
In 2003, Yanmar 6LYA-UTE engines were installed, rated at 315 hp at 3300 rpm. This engine displacement is 5.2 L (316 cu in). This engine has the turbo transverse mounted on the back, with a 5” exhaust coming off the left rear. The engine overhaul interval is said to be 10,000 hours. Turbo boost at full load is 25 psi. The engine has an 80-amp alternator driven by a single v-belt that also drives the water pump.
The transmissions were purchased in 2003 with the new Yanmar diesels
