The layout for Dawn Treader includes two queen-berth cabins, two heads, a large salon and an "L" shaped galley. Powered by twin diesel engines, the newest charter vessel is equipped with an outboard-powered dinghy, generator, flat screen TV, DVD and CD player, icemaker, microwave, GPS, autopilot, radar, heat and air conditioning.

Dawn Treader, the fourth 42-footer in the fleet and the third Grand Banks 42', is available for charter at $3,668 for seven days in the summer and $4,587 for seven days in the high season. In addition, during the company's 25th anniversary celebration, through 2010, charters receive extra days of cruising for charters of three days or longer.
