Construction

Hull, Deck & Keel

  • One piece hull and keel, featuring the unique ZERO™ Keel with internal lead ballast. Solid fiberglass hull of a general layup thickness of 18mm from the bottom of the keel extending to 40cm above the waterline. Stiffnesss, rigidity and excellent thermal insulation is achieved by the addition of a foam core to the lay up from 40cm above the waterline to the topsides and deck.
  • Extensive use of Aramid fibres (Kevlar™) are used to strengthen and provide increased impact resistance at the stem, forebody of the hull, and in the base and the base and leading areas of the Zero Keel™.
  • Heavily reinforced and solid crash protection area from the entire base of the chain locker back to the first sealed bulkhead providing ultimate protection at the stem of the bow from 20 cm, 6 ” above the waterline to 45cm 1’6″  below it.
  • Structural components are individually bonded during the hull layup stages with no prefabricated structural (Grid Matrix) components used.
  • Vacuum bonded foam cored deck and superstructure with high density inserts and single layer GRP laminates in load bearing regions. Deck hardware is mounted to areas of extra reinforcement and strength.
  • Two sealed bulkheads at bow to prevent water ingress to the interior in the event of heavy collision.
  • Sealed watertight bulkhead at the transom forward of the rudder shaft to eliminate water ingress to the interior via rudder shaft or bearing damage.
  • All bulkheads are foam cored and FRP laminated for maximum strength and rigidity.
  • Integral Kraken moulded safety bulwark with concave internal surface for superior deck safety at sea.
  • GRP moulded deck with intergal foam core is bonded to the hull flange, which is further bonded over by the seperatley laminated and cored bulwark moulding to acheive a higher level of integrity to the hull and deck joint.
  • The hull, deck and bulwark is bonded together using structural epoxy adhesives. No mechanical fixing are used thereby eliminating the potential of water ingress completely.
  • Ultra-high impact resitant laminated glass comprising of a special integral security/breach film in wrap around saloon windows. Port lights in the hull.
  • Standard hull gelcoat colour Signal White. Many colour options available, owners choice.
  • 3 x coats of primer and sealer applied below the waterline before standard antifoul in black – other colours available upon request.
  • Designed and built to meet and exceed RCD Category ‘A’ – Ocean, ABYC or local area equivalent at client request.
