the Powerboat Guide says......
A lot of boat for the money in her day, the Ocean 43 SS delivered
more than just a rakish profile and better-than-average
performance; she also boasts a well-finished interior with a
spacious salon and an innovative master stateroom layout. Built
on a tapered, modified-V hull with a shallow keel and a well-flared
bow, the 43 SS came with a long list of standard equipment and
relatively few options. Her spacious two-stateroom floorplan is
arranged with a private head in the master stateroom (located in
the bow of the boat) and twin single berths in the guest cabin. The
wide-open salon is created by extending the house well forward
on the foredeck and tucking the guest stateroom under the galley.
The cockpit has a freezer, a huge fish box, transom livewell,
washdowns, tackle storage lockers, and a transom door. Additional
features include a central vacuum system, wide side decks, engine
room washdown, and a bow pulpit. Note that the engine room is
a tight fit. Among several engine options, twin 480hp Volvo (or
500hp Yanmar) diesels cruise the 43 Super Sport at 25 knots and
reach a top speed in excess of 30 knots.
