Very stable boat and the contour seats are great but do need a bit of extra padding in them.

Ocean Pro 5m - great handling - really pleased with it. Enclosed anchor well with drain through hull to well at rear. Only got 40hp on her but she will do 30knots(gps reading) and very economical. Wires across deck? Yes but encase them in trunking - for the money I think a good boat. Pay more and get under deck trunking, etc.

This is mine but even with 60hp I only get 30knots. In saying that mine has lots of fuel and equipment on it so is quite heavy for its length,
