This is a simple barge with flat bottom single chine shape and a "ramped" shaped bow and stern. Despite the fact that this is a 'static' boat, the hull has been drawn to give a tough basis for whatever top is required. the drawings give the details for a basic cabin/superstructure which can be modified to suit. Details for a typical layout which includes 2 single berths in a separate cabin; separate shower and wc rooms; large galley; dinette and lounging areas, are given, which again can be adapted.
The design could be lengthened or shortened and because she has a simple box shape the beam could be altered too.
