POWER PROFILE: PERKINS diesel power provides the lowest ‘cruise’ fuel consumption and the broadest ‘cruise’ range of power options available. Since they are the lightest (lb-hp) of the industrial-duty engines,  You can expect at 7.25 Knot Cruise to sip only 1.4 GPH.

CONSTRUCTION: The RF-35 is uniquely constructed with a molding system that results in a one-piece integrally molded hull with gunwale decks, stern deck, and bow deck flanges.
