    Another wholesome vessel, this one by Tad Roberts. The Ocean 55.

    Cruiser and Canal.

    The brief was for a Motorboat sailing the Med with characteristics permitting the use of the French canals.

    Like the Ocean 55, but 2.25 GPH is way to much fuel burn. Buehler uses optimistic burn rates for similiar sizes so maybe thats why I think that. The 6' draft is also burdensome.
