One-piece Triaxial hand laminated GRP hull and keel with encapsulated lead ballast. Topsides professionally sprayed dark blue with Awlgrip Awlcraft from new to first owners specification. Cream GRP superstructure and PolyCore decks with moulded non-slip surfaces. PolyClad 3 gelcoat system for superior gloss retention, durability and osmosis resistance.

The SP Cruiser offers year round boating comfort, trawler-like livability and motoring performance, simple and versatile sailing and legendary IP quality and value. Among many unique features are the SP Cruiser's twin cockpits. One aft, perfect for the morning's first cup of coffee, plus one forward, just the right place for a group to sit while cruising or at anchor on a beautiful day. Large opening side and back windows in the enclosed deckhouse offer panoramic views while the center windshield panel hinges upward to allow socializing with family and friends in the forward cockpit. Control of this vessel is made easy and comfortable with dual helm and companion chairs plus a large console forward of the wheel for engine controls and instrumentation. An optional autopilot gives you the ability to steer the boat from virtually any location aboard with a wireless handheld control. And with the dual swivel chairs and L-shaped settee with folding table, this is a wonderful spot to have a meal or play a game of cards regardless of what the weather is doing outside.
