Hull Design and Build

Designed by Bernard Olesinski and the Fairline design team. Deep 'V' forward: 18° deadrise aft. Isophthalic gel coat backed by an isophthalic resin-rich powder-bound glass mat. All gel coat is laid up by hand, incorporating chopped strand glass mat, unidirectional, biaxial and woven roving’s. Transverse and longitudinal strengthening stringers throughout hull. Full length molded spray deflectors. The integral bathing platform gives the boat a longer waterline length for improved performance, particularly at reduced power settings.

Engine bearers are molded into the hull. The propellers are set in semi-tunnels enabling the engines to be located further aft whilst also reducing draught and improving efficiency by reducing the shaft angle. Hull/deck join is both bonded and through-bolted. The deck incorporates polyurethane foam cores for high strength and excellent thermal insulation. 25hp bow thruster with controls at both helm positions.
