It is unclear whether the second batch of the Gading Marine will be the same as the first but from the Gading Marine website, it is likely that it will be slightly different. From website, the first batch is now described as the G2000 FIC 18m class. The second batch is likely the G2000 Mk II FIC 18m class which is also featured on the website.

  1. The cabin is at the same location.

    Only the windshield rake has been changed from aft-swept to forward-swept. The new arrangement will provide cooler cabin and reduced glare from the sun. Better for the crew in my opinion.
