Description:

Lots of boats claim to have that ‘Tardis’ quality – a feeling of interior space apparently quite unsupported by the hull length. The Draco 2500 is a good contender for this description, and particularly with the full-length, full-height, cockpit covers fitted to this tidy example. The layout is unusual, with its raised helm alongside a generous sunpad. There’s good visibility all round with the recently-renewed covers up. On a nice day, take the covers off and enjoy the spacious seating in the cockpit. Down below, the interior is cosy and comfy, with all the facilities you need. This is a versatile boat with the twin outdrives giving a useful turn of speed.
