This 23-footer is an experienced world traveler.

With increased outboard engine horsepowers, it has been practical within recent years to operate some fairly large cruisers and other types of craft with this form of 2-cycle power. Wanderer is a big beamy craft which certainly represents the larger classification of outboard cruising boats. Because of her size and design characteristics, several cabin arrangements are possible within her spacious hull. Within reason, her performance will not be appreciably affected by certain optional interior arrangements as they will not cause significant differences in loading characteristics. She possesses a fairly deep-V entrance and a good clean run of her aft body lines which will give her a good turn of speed with a minimum of pounding. Recommended horsepower is two 35 or 40 horsepower outboard engines in either long or standard shaft versions, depending on the transom height chosen. "Wanderer’s" stability is excellent due to her considerable beam and ample deadrise. With a generous flare in her topsides, she will be a dry boat when running in choppy seas.
