Sea Dragon is extremely efficient, being capable of maintaining 10 knots (over 12M.P.H) on only a 10 HP. This is about the maximum comfortable travel speed on water and is much faster than the fastest sailboat.

Sea Dragon is long enough to stretch over the waves in a normal chop, delivering a smooth comfortable ride. The motor is far enough away that it doesn't intrude on your awareness, a major consideration in cruising. Her efficiency is demonstrated by the fact that she makes practically no wake.

Of course with only 10-15 HP she daintily sips teacups of gas instead of gulping it by the gallon. Sea Dragon has room for two comfortable forward berths (sleeps 2) , A full galley and A full head, Plus a main salon (sleeps 2).

Using plywood and epoxy construction, Sea Dragon is inexpensive to own and operate, especially when compared to what is available and will maintain her value for years to come. While almost 30FT long, in terms of trailering, Sea Dragon is a small boat, easily carried on a simple single axle trailer behind a compact car.

Sea Dragon is by far the best value going in a OB cruiser.
