Additional comments:
NARWHAL was commissioned in 2000 and is in fantastic original condition. She is stored indoors for the winter and maintained by the builder’s boatyard. If you know these boats, NARWHAL is one of the original hot rods and a real joy to drive. The Runabouts are known for their extraordinary manners and smoothness underway. There is no comparison with other offerings in this class of boat in terms of handling, speed, fuel economy and style. She’s the best of her kind.
