Our construction methods are what separates us from the other boat manufacturers. Our hull starts off with only the finest materials; biaxial fabrics, vinylester resins, vaccum-bagging Corecell foam, and high-density foam transom.
3" longitudinal, foam-encapsulated, full-height stringers are fully laminated to the hull on its bottom and sides. 2" transverse bulkheads are then laminated to the stringers, hull, bottom, and sides, creating all compartments to maximize all usable space (no liners).
Custom, aluminium fuel tanks are custom fit into sealed compartments, bolted to stringers and bulkheads, foamed in, then fully fiberglassed on top to prevent water intrusion.
Our 1" foam-composite deck is bonded to stringers, bulkheads, and cleat with methacrylate adhesive, then fiberglass-laminated 360 degrees on top and to all stringers and bulkheads below deck.
Since there is not a deck inner-liner, each boat's deck and interior sides are faired, primed, then painted with Awlgrip paints.
Our foam composite gunnel is bonded to the hull with adhesive, thru-bolted, and then fiberglassed to support gussets and bulkheads.
Our console is bonded to the deck with adhesive, thru-bolted, and fiberglassed on the inside to the deck and stringers. Stainless Steel hardware installed with thru-bolts. Rub rail is installed with thru-bolts and tapping screws.
