Hull and deck:

The vessel was designed by Doug Petersen, (3 time America’s Cup winning designer) and built by the Formosa Boat Building Co. for the Georgian Custom Yachts Inc to a very high standard of quality. The underwater configuration is a modified modern keel with cut-away forefoot. The rudder and propeller are protected by a heavy skeg.

She is a fully molded fiberglass hull & keel with encapsulated lead ballast. Hull to deck joint is fully through-bolted and bonded with a teak cap rail. When first commissioned by the previous owners, the hull was stripped to the gel coat below the water line and coated with 2 coats of Interprotect 2000, barrier coat. Above the water line the vessel was completely sanded, faired, primed and painted with three coats of International paint.

The fiberglass deck has a mahogany core with teak overlay on main deck and fiberglass non-skid on cabin top. The teak deck was bonded to the fiberglass with adhesives without the use of metal fasteners (new 2009)
