The boat was built in Norway in 1968-69 of welded aluminum construction. The boat weighs approximately 14,000 pounds (light and dry), and 20,000 pounds fueled and fully loaded with typical cruising gear. It has a hull length of 37 feet (41 with pulpit), a beam of 13 feet, 8 inches, and a draft of 32 inches at rest. The boat is 12 1/2 feet tall (air draft, above the water) with Bimini and antennas folded down. It is of typical Striker configuration, with a flybridge helm and a lower (levers only) station in the cockpit. Inside, a v-birth forward is followed by a lower cabin with upper and lower bunks on the starboard side. The head is on the port side aft of the v-birth. The main salon had a steering station on the starboard that was removed and relocated to the cockpit in 2003-04. The front windows were eliminated from the salon, and new 315 hp Yanmar 6LY-UTE propulsion engines were installed at this time. The galley is on the starboard side.
