The hull is a heavy duty GRP moulding, hand laid up to the Northshore's Nordseal laminating system. Thickness increases progressively towards the keel area, and additional stiffening is provided by a sandwich construction panel which runs the entire length of the hull. The keel box is an integral part of the hull lay-up. All main bulkheads are glassed into the hull at main lay-up stage. The underwater section has clear gel coat which was copper coat anti-fouled in 2011.
The deck is hand laid up GRP and is of sandwich construction. The lay-up commences with two coats of high specification gel followed by one back-up mat and two main lay-up mats. Balsa stiffening is then incorporated in all horizontal areas with plywood infills in way of deck fittings followed by a further two main lay-up mats. Heavily stressed areas are additionally reinforced with unidirectional glass reinforcement. The deck is bonded to the hull through the entire length and to all main bulkheads resulting in a strong and integrated unit. The hull to deck joint upstand is capped with teak; this was reworked and the teak capping reseated in 2015 for improved integrity.
