Outdrive is deeply tucked underneath the platform, therefore, swimmers’ safety always comes first. The ladder is installed to the starboard while the handy grab handle is placed to the transom. A ski tow pylon pops up with just one press, and can be pushed right back down if one does not need it. Brake lights on the transom enhance the safety. The transom is also furnished with a mounting bracket for an optional table.
