The general appearance is rich and eye-catching, with the unique transom treatment and impeccable glass and gelcoat work. Most of the hardware, including the 10-inch pop-up cleats, the transom trim, grab rail and anchor guard, is heavy-duty polished stainless steel. Almost everything is blind-fastened — no screws visible — which is more expensive and time consuming, but it adds to the clean, plush look. The 33 features a level-deck design, and the FE (Family Edition) version has forward seating with lockable compartments long enough to hold 7-foot fishing rods and deep enough for a small mountain of gear. A removable table fits snugly between them. When lowered, it creates an expansive casting platform. With cushions in place, it’s a comfortable space to lounge or entertain. The boat’s wide beam is carried well forward, which adds more square footage to the foredeck. The anchor locker houses a Lewmar windlass (standard equipment) and has room for all the rode you could ever want.
