This beautiful yacht is the 'cruiser/racer' of the 376 range. She has a Vinylester composite hull and deck, with a high quality gelcoat finish. Main differences which set her apart from her sister models are the cockpit which is enclosed at the stern, and the fact that all her rigging controls are routed back to the cockpit differently. She is supplied with an alloy Selden rig, North Sails genoa and mainsail, and a 20hp Volvo inboard engine with saildrive and fixed prop.
The Hull is built using vacuum bagged hand lay-up.
The Vinylester construction incorporates balsa as sandwich material. Internally the laminate is sealed using topcoat.
