Construction

RCD Status: The yacht conforms with the essential safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC or RCDII (2013/53/EU as appropriate (Recreational Craft Directive) and is categorised A – “Ocean”

 

Hull Construction:

  • The single-skinned hull is GRP and glass fibre construction with balsa stringers.
  • A structural inner moulding is bonded to the hull.
  • Its structural role is important as it takes and absorbs the stresses at pressure points (chain plate tie rods, keel, rudder, etc.) and spreads any loads, guaranteeing reduced strain on the hull.
  • The surface of the inner moulding makes cleaning easier and provides a better finish.
  • The hull gel coat is steel blue.
  • Air Draft: 69’1” / 21.05m.
  • The hull/deck joint is formed by an unvarnished teak toerail, bonded and screwed in position.
  • This assembly technique ensures water-tightness of the hull/deck joint and provides safety during movement on deck.
  • Hull was polished in May 2021.
  • Below waterline sanded and antifouled, including new anodes fitted in August 2021.

 

Deck Construction:

  • The deck is a sandwich (glass fibre, balsa, polyester resin) construction for an improved strength/weight ratio and optimal insulation.
  • All working and circulation areas of the deck are treated with ‘Picot’ non-slip coating.
  • An inner moulding is bonded to the deck interior to improve its finish.
  • The deck is teak.
  • Teak decking refurbished.

Keel & Rudder:

  • Under-hung rudder with glass fibre and vinylester composite stock.
