It has a free-standing masthead sloop rig, with a "Bierig" jib, an internally-mounted spade-type rudder and a fixed fin keel. It displaces 6,370 lb (2,889 kg) and carries 2,540 lb (1,152 kg) of lead ballast.[1]

The boat is fitted with a Japanese Yanmar 2GMF diesel engine of 13 hp (10 kW).[1]

The design has a hull speed of 6.47 kn (11.98 km/h).[4]
