The HEAVY GATE is a Classic Down East Style Flybridge Cruiser built of fiberglass and keeping the “Lap Strake” appearance of the original boats. The HEAVY GATE is the most recent model of this builder that I can find for sale. Powered with 210 HP diesels, the boat provides comfortable speed and terrific economy in this era of higher cost fuel. A great couples or small family boat for cruising. From all appearances and reports, this vessel is ready to go!
