Hull & Deck
If you ever wondered why the majority of charter sailboats in the world are made by Beneteau: think Strong, Reliable, Easy to Handle, Sea-Kindly Performance, and Value.  Wicked Good is no exception.   This 2008 Beneteau Cyclades 50 Sloop has proven her pedigree in five years of cruising in the Caribbean and a July 2013 survey by a credentialed and well-respected marine surveyor found no structural deficiencies. WINDLASS: ‘Quick’ 12-volt vertical windlass with a remote control. GROUND TACKLE PRIMARY ANCHOR: 25kg / 55lb ‘Kobra’ Chain / rode: Approximately 150ft x 12mm chain.

The upper hull is balsa sandwich construction with reinforced areas. COLOR: White gelcoat. FRAMING: A built-in Internal Grid Unit (IGU) is bonded and laminated to the hull at intervals. Its structural role is to absorb the stresses at pressure points (keel, rudder etc.) and it spreads any loads reducing the strain on the hull. Plywood bulkheads rest in liner recesses and are bonded to the upper hull with fiberglass tabbing. Semi-bulkheads are attached with bonding putty. The inner molding with its perfect surface gives extra stowage space under the sole and makes cleaning easier. DECK & SUPERSTRUCTURE: Composite fiberglass with balsa core and a molded non-skid surface provides an optimal strength/weight ratio as well as excellent sound and thermal insulation. The deck is reinforced single-skin under deck fittings (winches, tracks, U-bolts, cleats). A built-in inner deck molding gives the deck a perfect finish. HULL to DECK JOINT: The deck is chemically bonded to the hull in a vertical flange. An anodized aluminum cap rail covers this vertical joint. BULKHEADS: Marine plywood. CEILINGS: White fiberglass moldings. KEEL: Caste iron fin keel with a bulb. KEEL BOLTS: Stainless steel. RUDDER: A fiberglass spade rudder with foam core and a fiberglass rudderstock. BOW & additions: Raked bow with two stainless steel anchor supports. STERN & additions: Reverse transom (walk through) with a hinged access hatch / step covering the liferaft storage locker. There are two transom lockers and a hinged stainless steel swim ladder. THROUGH HULL FITTINGS: Bronze skin fittings with bronze bodied ball valves. The holding tank drain seacocks and skin fittings are plastic. DECK HATCHES: 7 ‘Lewmar’ aluminum=framed smoked plexi-glass. OPENING PORTLIGHTS: 15 ‘Lewmar’ opening portlights. COCKPIT SEATS & TRANSOM: Fiberglass moldings. A skeg is molded into the hull to protect the propeller shaft. Osmosis prevention is by the use of a white vinylester gelcoat.
