The hull is a single-skinned GR laminate. A structural inner moulding formed with unidirectional materials is bonded and laminated to the hull at various points. This plays an important structural role by absorbing the loads and pressure points (shroud chain-plate tie rods, keel, rudder, etc) throughout the structure, spreading these to reduce stresses on the hull. The surface material of the inner mouldings make it easier to clean and provides a better finish. DECK
The deck is of injection moulded (glass fibre /balsa/resin sandwich) construction for enhanced strength and optimal insulation.

The hull deck joint is formed by an unvarnished teak toerail, bonded and screwed in position. It's mechanised assembly ensures that the hull deck joint is watertight, and provides extra safety while moving about on deck.

The cast-iron keel can be pivoted and manoeuvred by a manual worm-screw system, operated by a winch handle. To improve their durability, the keels undergo treatment prior to assembly in the factory (anti-corrosion and improved finish, being coated and painted with an epoxy-compound based material). Adjustable runners are used for controlling this assembly.

The twin GRP rudders are raised by a sleeve system. The teak tiller has an extension with universal joint roller.
