43 Super Sport
Length w/ Pulpit:
A lot of boat for the money in her day, the Ocean 43 SS delivered more than just a rakish profile and better-than-average performance; she also boasts a well-finished interior with a spacious salon and an innovative master stateroom layout. Built on a tapered, modified-V hull with a shallow keel and a well-flared bow, the 43 SS came with a long list of standard equipment and relatively few options. Her spacious two-stateroom floorplan is arranged with a private head in the master stateroom (located in the bow of the boat) and twin single berths in the guest cabin. The wide-open salon is created by extending the house well forward on the foredeck and tucking the guest stateroom under the galley. The cockpit has a freezer, a huge fish box, transom livewell, washdowns, tackle storage lockers, and a transom door. Additional features include a central vacuum system, wide side decks, engine room washdown, and a bow pulpit. Note that the engine room is a tight fit. Among several engine options, twin 480hp Volvo (or 500hp Yanmar) diesels cruise the 43 Super Sport at 25 knots and reach a top speed in excess of 30 knots.
