The ECO 6 looks like the ECO55 cruiser, but it is a completely new design. The small increase of only 0.5m and increasing the total beam to 2.84m created a lot of possibilities. The cabin is much bigger; the boat now sports an enclosed bath room. There is a lot more stowage room.

The most obvious differences are the Gunter rig, the trampoline at the front and the seat extensions which can be used as back rests too. A nice feature is the front seats.

The extensive drawing set and the description will help you to build the boat and the Gunter rig too. This will safe you a lot of money. The rig is the most expensive thing you have to buy.
