Trim and displacement will vary with owner’s specification and equipment loaded aboard the yacht.

Hand laid up glass reinforced plastic. The laminate is a cored sandwich structure comprising glass filament mats and polyester resins with pigmented gel coat finishes. Two applications of hand brushed isophalic gel coat (Scott Bader enhanced Optima) with pigmented hull topside finish in dark blue. Gel coats are checked for thickness prior to the application of the first laminate. Initial lay-up also in isophalic resin combining with powder bound mats. The hull laminate with DCPD modified orthophalic polyester resin is a modern composite structure of varying layups and mat configurations to match the hull panel analysis. The hull core comprises 25mm end grain balsa put down on a polyester core bonding paste for maximum skin adhesion. The sandwich structure gives increased panel stiffness associated with weight savings to optimise the yacht’s centre of gravity. The underwater sections from midships forwards are further stiffened by utilizing an Aramid (Kevlar) bi- directional 0/90 laminate to increase underwater impact resistance. Hull stiffening is a complex mix of glassed in floors and stringers through the keel bay and main bilge area, plus structural bulkheads and chain plate supports. Structural bulkheads are bonded in and through bolted to the bonding flange. Structural support is also provided in the forward and after ends by bonded in tray mouldings creating flange and girder section support. Keel floors are moulded down into a deep keel sump. All structural areas in way of the keel box and holes cut through the laminate for skin fittings, transducers and under water appendages are in solid laminate. Ring floors carry chain plate loadings through the hull floor and are slot bonded to the main bulkhead. The transom is stiffened for the option to fit davits at a later date. Floor structures are a combination of foam cored floor girders through the keel floor area, over-laminated with bi-directional stitched mats to maximise the modulus of rigidity. Floors through the mast heel area are hardwood cored with over-bonding as above to carry the mast compression loadings. Bulkheads are structurally bonded to the hull skin and the underside of deck and coach roof with 100mm of glass bonding on both surfaces plus through bolting at 225mm spacings. Aft saloon bulkhead, forward saloon bulkhead and aft skippers cabin bulkhead are foam cored to give high panel stiffness and are designed to counter the hydrostatic loadings of watertight compartments if the yacht is required to be MCA compliant.

Hand lay up in glass fibre. Flat areas of the deck and coachroof are balsa cored for good panel stiffness and to improve insulation using 20mm end grain balsa, 140kg per cubic metre density. Vertical faces are cored with 12mm balsa of the same density. Load bearing areas within the deck where fittings and fastenings are fixed, the balsa core is replaced with 20mm or 12mm marine plywood to the depth of the surrounding core. Inner and outer skins of the deck sandwich are laid up with chopped strand mat in way of re-enforcing pads and the inner skin is increased to laminate thickness. The ring deck (side, aft and fore deck) plus forward and after coachroof are laid with a solid swept teak deck. Major deck beams in way of the coachroof, mast and mainsheet areas have additional stiffening in the form of carbon fibre tapes running the full length of the moulded beam. Hull To Deck Joint The hull is moulded with a return flange onto which the deck is landed; the transom is an integrally moulded part of the hull moulding. The deck is bonded to the hull flange and also mechanically fastened. The deck edge bulwark is then fitted with a laminated teak cap rail. The cap rail is stopped off and capped in way of the two spring cleats per side, stanchions are fixed to be bonded in under deck stainless steel support spigots.

The transom door is hydraulically operated from the binnacle and opens to reveal a teak deck area, a boarding ladder to allow access to the aft deck, mountings for the swimming ladder and automatically fold out stanchions to either side of the platform.
