Length w/ Pulpit:
For those who enjoy a little character in their boats, check out the Camano 31 (called the Camano 28 until 1997), a salty sedan cruiser from British Columbia with a trawler-like profile and efficient cabin layout. Shes built on a lightweight, flat-bottom hull with cored hull sides and an unusually wide prop-protecting keel. (Indeed, the keel cavity is big enough to contain the engine, keeping the weight down low for added stability.) The Camanos no-nonsense interior is well finished and her trolly-style front windows are almost unique in the boating world. With the galley down, the salon is big for a boat this size. Visibility from the lower helm is excellent thanks to large salon windows. The Camanos small cockpit has room for two folding chairs and not much more. Note the wide side decks and steep bridge ladder. Updates in 2003 included a standard bow thruster as well as a fuel increase to 133 gallons. Among the most popular boats in her class, a single 150hp Volvo diesel will cruise at 12 knots (1617 knots top). Recent models with a single 200hp Volvo cruise around 14 knots. A sistership, the Camano 28 Gnome (199095), is the same boat without a flybridge. Camano sold a ton of these boats.
