  • 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 surface finish produces additional stowage space under the floors and makes for easier cleaning
  • Prevention of osmosis on hull with the use of a NPG gel coat



  • The 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’ nonslip surface
  • Localized monolithic reinforcing areas are included under deck fittings (winches, tracks, chain-plates, cleats)

Helm System:

  • 2 leather-sleeved stainless steering wheels, 1100 mm in diameter.
  • The steering wheels are easily controllable from a seated position on the helmsman’s side bench seats.
  • Transmission system via chain and cranks connected to the rudder quadrant.
  • The rudder blade is semi-elliptical in shape — taking advantage of the latest research in hydrodynamics — and filled with very high density closed-cell epoxy foam to avoid any ingress of water.
  • The solid stainless rudder stock is mounted on self aligning bearings for greater precision and lightness of the helm whatever the wind conditions.
  • Stainless steel emergency tiller
  • Access deck-plate for emergency tiller.



  • 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 bolts.
  • The (bulb) keel is in cast iron: 2.00 m.
  • Mixed cast-iron/lead ballast keel with a draught of 2.35 m allows superior (stiff, close-winded) performance, whilst maintaining an acceptable draught, lowering the centre of gravity, and increasing the boat’s stability
