Hull & construction

• Hull construction is a vinylester laminate vacuum bagged with CoreCell core laminate locally reinforced with carbon fiber. 

• The vacuum-bagging process and strict resin control through use of resin impregnators
produces a hull laminate with 65% glass reinforcement content.

• CoreCell closed cell linear polymer foam coring is used for maximum impact resistance,
stiffness, strength, and light weight. The cored hull also offers superior hull insulating properties, both thermal and acoustic.

• The laminate in the keel area is reinforced with multiple plies of high-tensile carbon-fiber
unidirectional reinforcements

• Premium grade gelcoat provides superior gloss, fade resistance, and resistance to surface crazing.

• Interior is completely painted out for enhanced cosmetics and to seal interior laminate surfaces 



 Deck is a balanced composite laminate utilizing vinylester resin, uni-directional "E"-glass reinforcement, and high strength/stiffness Baltek premium AL 600 balsa coring

- Deck is locally reinforced at high load areas with additional plies of bi-directional "E"-glass reinforcement

- White non-skid

- Premium grade gelcoat provides superior gloss, resistance to fading, and resistance to crazing

- Deck coring windows are located at all hardware installations to maintain the watertight integrity of the deck coring

- Molded in aluminum backing plates on all highly loaded deck hardware

- Hull to deck joint is secured with 1/4-20 stainless machine screws installed on 4" centers through the full-length 6061 T6 aluminum backing plate imbedded in the hull flange. This method exceeds the recommended installation requirements of the ABS scantling for offshore sailing yachts.

- Hull to deck joint is sealed with 3M 5200 adhesive sealant

- Composite light RTM match-molded deck locker hatches assure strict thickness controls allowing accurate gasket seal of cockpit openings. Conventional construction uses single-sided moldings with painted raw fiberglass underside.

- Double lifeline gate at transom

- Instrument pod integrated onto coach roof with convenient wire chase for instrument installations or additions
