Composite moulding

Over the years there have been many advances in composite construction. One example of this hard won experience is the patented 'Nordseal' laminating system that protects the hull from the threat of osmosis later in life. The three layer system replaces the conventional gelcoat below the waterline.

Hull and decks are heavy duty GRP mouldings, hand laid up to the Nordseal laminate system, with sandwich construction topsides (PVC foam) and a single skin bottom stiffened by foam cored transverse floors and bilge stringer. Bi-axial reinforcements are used with local applications of uni-directionals. The resin system is predominantly DCPD. The composite materials are engineered to produce maximum strength and durability, with minimum weight for high performance.

Craftsmanship

Every aspect of construction reflects the highest standards of British Craftsmanship, from moulding the hulls, fit out of internal joinery, installation of engineering and electrical systems, to finishing, commissioning and launch.

With over 35 years experience in the boat building industry, we have become respected for their quality of build and renowned for combining traditional skills, together with the latest technology.

Combining modern techniques

Modern techniques are combined with traditional skills throughout many areas of the construction process. Once example of this is plugmaking, where laser cut frames are set up to build the hull or deck shape, before conventional methods of fitting stringers, building up layers of diagonal planking, shaping, filling, fairing and finishing, are carried out.

Precision Engineering

3-Axis and 5-Axis milling machines provide total precision. Using the latest computer software, design drawings are data supply linked to command the computerised milling machines which sculpture complex design details with complete accuracy.
