Keel & Safety Equipment
- 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
- Open stainless bow pulpit easing access aboard and spinnaker handling
- 2 stainless stern push pits
- Bracket for lifebelt, flag, and outboard bracket
- The boat is ringed by 2 rows of guard rails supported on stanchions fixed to bases bolted to the deck
- 2 large gates in the guard rails
- 2 teak handrails on the coach-roof make getting around easier
- Handrail astern of cockpit table
- 2 handrails above companionway
- Chain-plates for safety harnesses
- All running lines pass beneath the deck, leaving the coach-roof clear
Deck & Helm System
- 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)
- 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.
Engine & Hull
- 110 hp Volvo engine with prop shaft transmission and folding propeller

- Fuel filter with water separator, plus sea-water filter, anti-siphon valve
- Engine compartment light
- 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
