The vessel is dominated by an expansive aft deck of 225 square meters of usable area, planked with hardwood and protected by study cargo rails.

An additional 30 square meters of cargo area is provided inside the main deck cabin, allowing for the carriage of items out of the elements, such as food and other supplies. Also housed in the main deck cabin are wet room and laundry facilities.

Baru Gorgona is powered by a quartet of Cummins QSK 50 main engines, each rated at 1,800 hp at 1,800 rpm. Propulsion is by way of fixed-pitched propellers, whilst two 150 hp electric tunnel bow thrusters will enhance maneuverability. The vessel has a service speed of 21 knots.
