Hull and deck structure moulded to the designer's specification by Colvic Craft Plc in Lloyd's approved facilities under controlled conditions.
All laminating carried out by hand to a high standard.
Hull topsides are finished with a navy blue cove line and navy blue boot top.
The area below the waterline is treated with three coats of West Epoxy, two coats of G.P. Primer and two coats of undercoat before anti-fouling.
The deck is moulded in GRP (with Blakes anti-slip paint) with a balsa core for stiffness, and thermal insulation being replaced with plywood for additional strength where solid pads are required for through-deck fastenings.
