The 5.2 is our flagship model. It is designed for venues with open or rough water and is a dry ride. It has a self bailing cockpit and bilge. The most popular seating configuration is a leaning post and center console with a forward seat attached to the console. When the console is mounted in the center, there is enough room to walk around both sides of it. If you prefer to sit down during operation, a bench seat or jockey seat configuration is available. A large bulk head in the rear provides storage and supports a tow post.
