All GRP, with non-slip finish on deck. Deck painted 2018, centre cockpit, and deck saloon.
Built in a negative mould.
The hull was reinforced in 2006 with 6-12 layers of Biax fibreglass roving up to 30cm above the waterline using West System epoxies, prior to my circumnavigation by a professional company, costing around 35,000 dollars. This has given the hull extra strength.

Long distance cruiser set up with generators, solar panels and a watermaker. Ideal for exploring the islands, no need to put into port every day. Well known designer.
Tried and tested having completed a circumnavigation, and over 10 Atlantic crossings.
Proven and comfortable long distance cruiser, ready for new adventures. Lots of on-board systems for an independent life style living in comfort in far off islands. I have made 7 Atlantic crossings during my ownership, and also sailed to Madagascar and Mozambique.
I have owned her for 18 years, only she is only for sale as I am now working on a new project.
