Factory Description

Comfort underway is derived by many factors, one of which is hull shape.  The KEELFORM® hull does not “roll” like a full displacement hull form and does not “pound” like a planing hull form.  The Camano KEELFORM® is unique.  Forward, her stem is deep, as it would be in a displacement hull.  Aft, the bottom flattens out into hard chines, just like a planing boat, but has a huge keel and barn-door style rudder that would never be found on a planing yacht.  The keel, which provides about 28 percent of the hull’s displacement, is one of the elements of design that makes the Camano an adept performer at any speed.

The 200 hp Volvo® turbo-charged engine is placed deep in the engine compartment, along with the fluid storage.  This places the center of gravity lower than in most boats, thus allowing a steady and level ride. Comfort is also derived from the low noise level, when underway, because of a combination of a quiet diesel and a well-insulated engine room.

Brokers Comments

I'm not one to crow about a boat being the "best" on the market, because I have and can not see them all.  However I have been doing this 18 years and "12 Volt Man" condition is superb and has to be in the top boats.  With her pampered diesel, optional generator, 2000 watt inverter, A/C, spotless interior, bilge and engine room, lift kept, etc., she is cruise ready and turn key.  These owners purposely awaited the 2003 model, over an earlier model,  as Camano added a standard bow thruster and increase the fuel by 1/3 to 133 gallons.   Owners have completed cruising and are seeking offers.  If vessel condition, equipment and buying from a caring owner is important to you, "12 Volt Man" is the boat for you!
