Boat description:

  • General description
    It was launched with the slogan ''It's the young people's rocket''.
    Its distinctive features include the open design of the cockpit and sundeck and the white painted sides for ease of maintenance, a clue to its principal target market, the USA, where owners tended to take care of boats themselves. 

    ARUNI is a Sanskrit name for babies meaning the dawn, sun, morning; the sun-god.



  • Layout
    Introduced in 1966 to replace the Florida. Conceived for utility use and ease of maintenance, both for fishing and water skiing, it was typified by a large cockpit that could be walked round, protected by the bulwarks, around the engine cover and driving seat. The sides and transom were painted white for easy maintenance and the style winked at the USA fashion for ''utilities''. The design of the transom, also used for the Olympic, had the purpose of protecting the passengers from spray from the stern. It also had great success as a tender for large yachts.
  • Equipment
    The instruments were again SW/Chris-Craft. The cockpit was also equipped along its sides by a large mahogany grab rail with an elaborate front stay of chrome plated bronze incorporating the engine air intakes. In 1967 the hull was lengthened from # 125 and the bottom cross-sections changed from #129.
    VDO instruments, but with pastel green faces, were fitted from # 162. # 239 of 1967 was the trial boat for the 1968 series with a definitive bottom (a ''V'' of 10° at the ransom and of 18° amidships). The starter button was protected by a rubber cap from # 612.
  • Exterior
    The upholstery was turquoise and white and was also used to cover the dashboard.
