There will be 2 steps from the cockpit
down to the saloon
and the cockpit space under the floor will be open. to increase bridgedeck height.
We will not offer shaft or sail drive , green motion will be the only possibility so these will be retractable saildrives that come up under the bridgedeck as attached.
The spaces forward of the major bulkhead can be used in different ways,
workshop. extra bunk , separate shower
, storeroom etc.we leave this for our clients to fill in.
All our hatches are always raised with 15 mm to prevent water
coming in after opening always a problem.
We will use marguard in all the glass hatches , portholes and windows to prevent heat coming in and we will have forced ventilation like the st francis 48 / 50 having a hole for air under the trampoline that is vented thru out the boat so even when anchoring
in rain fresh air can come in, for the rest the complete boat will benefit form the experience with the FastCat
435 so all lighting will be led or cold cathode.
openings will be recessed, the complete boat and all parts
will be epoxy
resin infused and no gell coat will be used. to keep weight down as much as possible
It will be a challenge to keep the ready weight at or under 3600 kilo,s or 8000 LBS
but I am sure we will get there.
there will be hatches in the rear cabin under the outside seats facing backward.
