If you mean by "utility" that it is a very versatile boat then you are correct.Originally Posted by Hydrocruiser
It has a good ride in moderate water and the speeds are acceptable for what it is. There is plenty of room to move around the boat if you have friends aboard and you do not have to trip over each other. If you like to fish or snorkel/scuba it works out great. If you have to do maintenance on the outboards you do not have to be a contortionist to get into the bilge. The open area is easy to clean with a hose and scrub brush.
As far as the styling goes mine might be old and have outdated graphics but there are plenty of newer models being built with the latest technology available along with some great paint schemes.
I love my "Grandpa boat"!
