The boat is built entirely in carbon fibre pre-preg and cured in custom built oven at Franklin Boat Works in New Zealand. The interior ends are finished in high gloss clear over the carbon fiber while the center area is painted over carbon with American maple trim and red upholstery. Southern Spar (ultra high modulus) carbon rig with EC6 carbon rigging with locking halyards. Extensive sails by North Sails. Deck has all halyards and control lines leading aft under the cabin and deck making for a clean uncluttered deck layout. Three Harkin grinding pedistals are mounted in the cockpit and can run any of 4 differend winches as well as hydraulic deck functions. The keel is a lifting foil with bulb that gets the draft from 16' while sailing to 11' for entering shallow draft harbors and equipped with a kelp cutter. The 75hp Volvo Penta diesel auxillary has a retractrable drive for drag free speeds while sailing. Twin rudders with kelp cutters make steering positive in all conditions.
Extensive inventory of running rigging. Includes fully outfitted 40' container and cradle for dry storage / shipping.
Offwind speeds of 30+ kts can be obtained in the right conditions. The boat is being sold for a fraction of its original cost.
