Hull and superstructure are heavy duty hand lay-up GRP mouldings. In the hull, woven rovings and chopped strand mats are used in combination, with thickness increasing progressively towards the keel area. There is a balsa core in the topsides that stops just above the waterline. The deck is of sandwich type construction using balsa core stiffening, with plywood in high stress areas where fittings are positioned. Bulkheads are glassed in, and the entire deck is bonded to the hull, resulting in a strong and integrated unit. A teak rubbing strake is fitted externally. The interior joinery is of teak faced plywood, with solid teak trims built onto GRP base modules which are also “glassed” into the hull.

The cast iron grounding plate is bolted into a recess in the hull using stainless steel bolts. It acts as transverse stiffening in way of the keel slot and protects the hull when taking the ground.

The swing keel is raised by an electrically operated hydraulic ram with manual backup, which is attached to the swing keel by a pulley system.
