We launched and sea trialed the 50' KOAN the summer of 2003 and found her to run well at 20 knots loaded with all the luxuries. The great visibility from the upper helm station and the comfortable lounge area forward of the helm make for a great place to relax on a summer's day. We finished off this custom sportfishing machine with a traditional Herreshoff styled interior full of mahogany and Corian(R) counters that add to the warm feel below. The lower cabins have the classic look with warm, off-white panels trimmed in teak. The raised galley and main salon are primarily mahogany with large windows that provide a light and open feeling. Powered by a single 1500 hp Caterpillar 3412 diesel and a 32 kw Westerbeke generator, she is a great running boat that handles a seaway kindly. KOAN is equipped with a full array of electronics for serious fishing as well as two large fish holds with ice makers. Her exterior shows off her sportfishing heart. Making those runs out to the canyons will be smooth and comfortable with lots of room for exciting offshore hunting.
