|The design brief was for this boat to be stable, responsive, easily handled, with sparkling sailing performance and in practise it has surpassed these expectations. Solidly built, it has an "A" class CE rating, for bluewater or offshore sailing. From stem to stern it is built to be functional, solid, and very reliable in harsh weather conditions, and guarantee the occupants a high sense of comfort and safety. The cockpits generous size with teak laid seating and open quick draining transom also allows easy "stem on" access on the marina. Inside, the D31 is a perfect combination of space and ergonomics, with panoramic windows and opening hatches and port lights providing good natural light and ventilation. This boat is well specced for Australian conditions. With all new interior fabrics and sumptuous settees providing sleeping accommodation for 6 in double private cabins fore an aft, and 2 single settees. The drop leaf table will comfortably seat six, and the L shaped galley with stove, sink and 12V refridgeration is equally good at sea or for entertaining at anchor. Standard interior finish is light mahogany providing a warm ambience. Underneath the hull there is a cast iron fin keel and a balanced hi aspect ratio low drag rudder, combined with good hull form provides sparkling sailing performance and stability. AND----the best part of this is the very low introductory price. No need to consider used boats with the amazingly low price of this new 31 footer. Also available in shoal draft wing keel with centrboard and twin rudders. Price is indicative of standard factory spec boat, but can vary with equipment changes and currency exchange fluctuations. Prices correct, January 2014. Ask for an update.
