BABE was originally built for an owner who was quite tall. The forward berth is over 7’± long and headroom is 6’4”± throughout. BABE has several unique features—from the roof mounted solar panels to the forward cabin floor plan. She has been very well maintained, has low hours on the engine (645±) and will provide many adventures to her new owners.
