For heavier loads and greater passenger capacity, consider the DR 520/570 series. Still remarkably portable and lightweight, these models feature wide beams for greater interior room, and enhanced lateral stability. The hull’s deep-V forward transitions to a keel pad aft. This combination affords a smooth ride while also promoting quick planing and low fuel consumption. Integral fuel tanks in the 520 and 570 provide increased range
 
capability and free up deck space for passengers and gear. Storage is available in the large bow locker. At the stern there is an inspection hatch which affords direct access to the bilge and the standard automatic electric bilge pump. These are the smallest models in the DR series which can be equipped with an optional center console and backrest seat for piloting from a standing position.
