With a reputation for handling the nastiest seaways with ease and an equally enviable reputation as a fish-raiser, the 43 is a soft-riding and very dry boat - as advertised.
There is a distinct feel of quality to the boat - not the sometimes chintzy impression that gold plating and flash cabinets lend to a craft, but rather a machined from the solid feel that you experience every time you tie off on one of the oversized stern cleats or grab a flybridge handrail.
With Stebercraft now operating under ISO9002 quality assurance accreditation, military, institutional and commercial work makes up a large part of the company's turnover.
