Hull, Deck & Superstructure Construction:
- Basic hull and structure is welded aluminum including superstructure with three full watertight bulkheads and two half-height watertight bulkheads.
- Bottom is 12mm aluminum plate.
- Integral aluminum tanks for water and diesel form a double bottom between the three full height watertight bulkheads.
- 19mm tempered windows with storm boards.
- The hull structure is massively strong with a double bottom throughout the accommodation space. The stabilizers are mounted within cofferdams.
- Matching grey chequer plate decking on exterior decks.
- External handrails, stanchions and foremast, et al are 316 L stainless steel.
- The ‘bolt on’ swim step extension section adds to the waterline length and reduces drag six to eight percent. It also creates valuable space for loading/unloading passengers and stores from the dinghy, exiting to floating docks, and easy access off the stern for swimming. Finally, this extra waterline increases longitudinal resistance, further reducing pitching. In addition, the measured length of the hull? We will just say that the bolt-on nature of the extension offers a degree of flexibility with “official” measurements not available with a welded extension. The extension has a hand rail fitted to it and this has been uprated 2022.
- There is 6500lb of lead ballast, encapsulated within the fuel tanks.
