The hull is of single-skinned GRP construction. Local areas of reinforcement serve to strengthen the structure. A structural inner moulding is bonded and
laminated to the hull. Its structural role is important as it takes and absorbs the stresses at pressure points (chainplate tie rods, keel and rudder etc), guaranteeing
reduced strain on the hull.
The surface of the inner moulding makes cleaning easier and provides a better finish.
The hull is in white with blue and gold decoration; Steel Blue is available as an option.
