Developed from the highly regarded Day Angler 19+, with more beam along the waterline spray chines the 20MkII gives even greater stability without a significant increase in wetted surface The hull features a reasonably deep forefoot with fine forward sections and pronounced flare developing into a moderate V aft. The resulting shape, combined with a moderate beam/length ratio, results in a dry, comfortable ride inrough seas without sacrificing traditional Orkney characteristics such as vice free handling, stability at rest, easy motion whilst drifting or at anchor and the ability to perform well with relatively small engines. The fully moulded cockpit has safe high coamings and is self draining with useful stowage under hinged lids. Wide side decks with practical ‘angled-in’ toerails and pilot style coachroof handrails make going forward to the foredeck simple and secure. Down below the wheelhouse cabin is bright and airy with plenty of upholstered seating, a neat galley below the co-pilot’s seat to port and the option of a toilet starboard. At the same time it is practical with over 6’4” headroom, good grab handles, convenient lockers and easily cleaned surfaces. Combining surefooted handling, workmanlike practicality and comfort below in a boat that is easy to tow and launch makes the Pilot House 20MkII one of the best 20 footers afloat.
