The Garvey 11 is a versatile small power boat. Her ample beam provides exceptional stability, room, and carrying capacity. She has a moderate deadrise of 10 degrees to provide a softer ride than a flat bottom boat. When you compare her to a similar length inflatable boat, you will see that the absence of the inflatable tubes gives much greater interior volume. Her upraised bow and spray rails gives a very dry ride.

A 5-6 HP motor will plane the boat with 1 person, an 8 HP with 2 average adults. This boat can use a smaller motor, but she is really designed to go fast on a plane.
