Construction and layout

Hunt Deep-V hull design with a broad flaired bow and a 58 degree dead rise at the bow and a 22.5 degree dead rise at the transom waterline that tends to a  soft, dry ride with exceptional directional stability.

There are four full length longitudinal glased over foam cored stringers inside the hull for hull re-enforcement, with additional transverse stringers. Port and starboard below the waterline are lifting strakes that give the hull lift, and directional stability. The hull, trunk cabin and deck (with molded-in non-skid) are all finished in gel coat.
