Perhaps counterintuitively, this is the quietest Aspen ever, and she scoots across the bay smoothly, under power from either one or both of her outboards rated for 200- and 70-horsepower engines. The outboards provide a balance for our Power Proa hull, though we changed the starboard hull so it no longer has the keel form and prop pocket. The engines are rated for the same maximum rpm range of 5,000 to 6,000, have the same lower-unit gear ratio, and use similarly pitched props. The hull shape at the bow still lets the boat run in balance: No helm correction is needed, and hands-free tracking is on par with our inboard design.
The C107 has a comfortable salon area with galley to port and a dinette to starboard. The galley is equipped with a propane stove and oven, and a refrigerator. The dinette seats four and converts to a double berth. Belowdecks, accommodations include a master forward with a king-size berth, and a separate enclosed head with shower, and there’s a quarter-berth beneath the galley. She’s nicely appointed with Burmese teak, a custom-selected tile backsplash, and more. The C107 is a true cruising yacht that makes the most of today’s outboards for quiet, efficient operation.
