The sandwich design of the hull makes for very good thermal and acoustic insulation. The lamination of the network of ribs reinforces the hull’s solidity and in this way makes allows very good spreading of the forces from the keel and rigging. The inner molding liner with its perfect finish produces additional stowage space under the floors and makes for easier cleaning. Prevention of osmosis on hull with the use of a NPG gelcoat.
Her deck is produced by infusion for an optimum rigidity/ lightness ratio along with excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, and has an inner moulding liner for a perfect finish. All working and traffic areas have a ‘diamond-point’ non- slip surface. Localized monolithic reinforcing areas are included under deck fittings (winches, tracks, chain-plates, cleats). To increase durability, Dufour’s team of engineers have opted to minimize wooden structural inserts beneath deck fittings..
Hull Deck Junction
A straight sheer strake forms the join between the hull and the deck. This assembly ensures the watertightness of the hull/deck join and increases safety when moving about on deck. The wooden toe-board emphasizes the deck line, and offers non-aggressive protection for the feet. The join between the transom/hull is built flat for greater aestheticism.
For maximum life, keels undergo factory treatment before fitting (anti-corrosion and improved finish thanks to epoxy-based paint and coatings). The keel with a large sole-plate is fixed to the boat with a system of stainless backing-plate and nuts. Her bulb keel is in cast iron: 1.90 m. As an option, a long, mixed cast-iron/lead ballast keel with a draft of 2.25m allows superior (stiff, close-winded) performance, while maintaining an acceptable draft, lowering the center of gravity, and increasing her stability.
