Do you know the name of the boat
or the original owner's name?
The boats were custom finished but all the hulls were solid glass - very solid! Some hulls were insulated as well.
The early decks were all solid glass - the flush decks were cored with plywood
and all the trunk cabins were cored with 1" balsa core
The cost of building the hull and deck at today's material and labor prices would be about $60,000.00
A completely finished cruiser would cost about $400,000.00
The glassing workmanship and materials are both top quality. I used isothalic resin on every boat we built.
The only Amor 40 not built by me has a vertical trailing edge on the keel
and was built by Joseph Corria (yacht designer). He modified it to be a purely racing experiment
- so it was built much lighter making it a much less desirable rebuild
My goal was to build a safe offshore
boat and most of my customers did indeed take their boats offshore
and some of the original owners still have their boat today!
