Offering the confidence and comfort of big boat ability in a package under 7m. Encompassing a very capable seagoing hull, large fishing space, and an interior finished to the highest standards. The Commander delivers quality and comfort beyond any other for its size
With 60 degrees of entry at the bow, the hull splits the force of a wave before it arrives at your feet. And with a relatively flat aft area she is both stable under way and at rest.
As a side effect of the Herley hull and combination with the wheelhouse design the Commander delivers superior interior space for a vessel of her size. The plumb bow brings extra cabin space up forward, and the absence of an anchor well increases this further. Inside the wheelhouse the helm position is not forced further aft into the boat due to pilot house windows, and creates a spacious interior flow. Overall these design elements allow the Commander to maintain a very large working area within the cockpit where lean lines, and practical solutions are the key. Featuring systems like flip seats, hinged storage bins, and unique bait board that reclaims the space of the outboard well.
The windscreen design gives an uninterrupted view from the helm and also provides zero dash glare during the day, no instrument glare at night, and when sea spray hits the screen it simply falls away rather than slowly running down.
The Commander interior can be customized to suit your style of boating. From a day cruise with the family, a big fishing weekend, or a purpose weekender with overnight capabilities.
