Capable at sea

The 316 DC offers a sea-capable hull with the company’s VDS (Variable Degree Stepped) design with three step angles. The deepest of the three treads features a 24 degree angle designed to cut through water, with a second 23 degree surface allowing air to flow efficiently under the hull for less friction and greater fuel economy. The third, outermost step measures 22 degrees to improve stability at rest. Power choices include twin Yamaha or Mercury outboards up to 700 total horsepower. The 316 DC’s Sailtech construction incorporates materials such as Kevlar, quad axial fiberglass mat, spray core and Trevira to ensure reliability, strength and durability in harsh conditions.

Angling services

Fishing features include a spacious aft cockpit made possible by a 9ft 9in beam. A 30 gallon livewell is nestled in the harbor area; a transom door is on the starboard quarter, and there are two fish boxes in the sole with overboard drains, plus a pair of insulated fish traps, forward. The 316 DC has a total of 14 rod holders, and an inward-opening door on the port aft cockpit allows you to carry a large tuna or swordfish on board.

Coaming pads surround the cockpit to cushion the legs while fishing.
