Each boat is constructed to a strict process, using tight specifications and tolerances to ensure high quality and longevity. Construction is using vinylester with a gelcoat finish, and featuring a number of innovations ‘out of the factory’ to create a boat that is fast straight out of the box. The boat uses a twin spreader carbon mast from C-Tech (www.c-tech.co.nz) combined with light weight composite construction to achieve a total displacement of approximately 335kg including 125kg in the keel/bulb.
