A brief description about the building process.
The seller and designer started from scratch. Seller wanted to have a yacht which had to be safe, light weighted, easy to handle (like a small open boat), capable of sailing shallow waters, had to have performance qualities and a spacious interior with comfort.
During the designing and building process, seller and designer consulted and collaborated with renowned professionals from various industries among which craftsmen from Fokker Aerospace, the professionals from Polyworx, which are specialists in building Composite / Core-Cell structures and of course several highly skilled specialists from the Dutch boating building industry.
The hull requires almost no maintenance and there is no risk of rotting, delaminating or osmosis. Vacuum infusion method is used to built the hull instead of the hand lay-up, which can cause problems.
This infusion method assures an extremely high quality and resin-fiber ratio. The inherently high strength and light weight make this material ideal for a performance cruising yacht. An added advantage is that the closed cell structure makes it air-tight and extremely suitable for vacuum infusion.
High-density foam has been used in critical places in the hull and deck to enable an extreme strong mounting surface of the rails. This technique has also been used for deck - hull connection. Main rigging chain plates are mounted directly on reinforcements which assures no stretch on the through deck connection. Front and backstay chain plates are fabricated of extra wide laminated and multiple layers of carbon band. Forces are very well distributed over a large surface.
Keel area / surrounding is a solid laminate. Inner and outer laminate come together to assure a bullet-proof structure .The keel box runs through this surface and is casted in reinforced epoxy, all the way up. This assures that the keel box is completely clamped-in and is much stronger compared to a bolted keel.
