With its sleek and unbroken sheer, the 53 has classic lines, while a sharp entry and moderate deadrise provide notable sea keeping. The hand-laid fiberglass hull is solid glass in the keel, chines and bottom. The hull sides, decks and cabin top are cored for stiffness and strength. Premium vinylester resins are used for skin and secondary laminates to prevent osmotic blistering.
With plenty of fishing room, the 11-foot, seven-inch-long cockpit includes a top-loading freezer, removable in-deck fish boxes, transom baitwell, fresh- and salt-water washdown systems, tackle storage and bait-prep center.
