The hull is a foam cored carbon fiber construction with aramid and carbon fibre reinforcements built in a female mould using epoxy resin. The top sides are of sandwich construction. The bottom laminate from the waterline down is monolithic. The structural bulkheads are of pre-preg foam cored carbon sandwich construction laminated to hull and deck.
The composite chain plates are built using wet epoxy and unidirectional carbon fibre straps laid over stainless steel bushings. The chain plates are post cured according to resin manufacturer’s recommendations. The carbon fibre main shroud and split backstay chain plates are attached to the hull structure.
The topsides are painted in Awlgrip AwlCraft Snow white with dark grey metallic cove and boot stripes. Below the waterline, the boat is finished in black antifouling, Micron 77 most recently applied on February 2019.
The ballast bulb is lead casting with 4.5 % antimony and attached to a Weldox 900 steel fin. The keel is attached to the hull with AISI 329 bolts. The fin is faired using templates to a tolerance of +0/-3mm.
The rudder is supplied by Isotop and built using carbon fibre/epoxy skin on a foam core, with a tubular carbon fibre stock. The lower tip of the rudder is designed to break before the stock. There is also a weed deflector in front of the rudder. The rudder is supported by two self-aligning bearings supplied by JP3. The lower bearing has double seals to prevent leakage. There is a lightweight aluminum steering quadrant bolted to rudder stock.
Two custom built composite pedestals with compass, navigation and sail control systems. There are two 1200 mm clear-coated carbon composite wheels, which can be independently disconnected.
The transom door doubles as a bathing/boarding platform. carbon fibre pre-preg construction for maximum stiffness. There is 9 mm teak on the topside. The door is hydraulically operated by two custom-built stainless steel rams. Two stainless/teak ladders, one to provide access from deck to the platform, the other a swimming ladder. Hot/Cold water shower on swim platform
