31 Sedan Bridge
Length w/ Pulpit:
While the chief attraction of the 31 Sedan Bridge may have been her attractive styling and affordable price, those who step below will be immediately impressed with the spacious interior packed into this small cruiser. Like all sedan-bridge designs, the sunken floorplan is made possible by locating the engines aft, under the cockpit, rather than placing them beneath the salon sole. The result is a wide-open interior arranged more or less on a single level from the salon forward. There are two staterooms in this layoutno small achievement in a 31-foot boat. The galley is opposite the dinette in the main salon, and a double-entry head offers private access to the forward stateroom. Outside, molded steps lead up to the flybridge with its wraparound guest seating and portside helm position. With very narrow side decks, a walk-through in the bridge coaming provides direct access to the foredeck. The cockpit comes with a transom door, and the entire cockpit sole lifts up to get at the engines. Additional features include a swim platform, molded cockpit seating, hidden swim ladder, and a bow pulpit. Twin 340hp V-drive gas engines cruise at 1820 knots (high 20s top).
