The accomodation comprises, starting from the companionway: a galley with ENO cooker with oven, Fridge (Isotherm) and 2 sinks, storage for plates and crockery behind the cooker. On the port side is a chart table with seating position and drawer for charts and various documents. At the bottom of the companionway on the port side is a cabin with a double bunk and storage. Forward from the galley and chart table is a saloon with folding table. On port side the settee doubles up as a single bunk with lea-cloth. On the starboard side the settee can be puled out and transformed into a double bed. The bulkhead separates the saloon from a Heads on starboard side. In it a marine WC currently discharges at sea but the boat has a holding tank that has been decommissioned and could be reinstalled. The heads has a sink/shower with hot/cold water. The shower tray is emptied by an electric pump. Access to the heads is through 2 doors; one opening forward of the bulkheads coming from the saloon and another door opens directly in the forward cabin. The forward cabin has a double V shaped bunks with plenty of storage under it. A layout plan is included in th photos.
Wauquiez constructs solid fiberglass hulls, laid up by hand, that consist of several layers of bi-directional fiberglass. Six longitudinal stiffeners that run the entire length of the boat are glassed in and integrated to fiberglass beams running athwartships that provide additional structural integrity. Bulkheads are bonded to the hull and deck.
The modified fin keel — approx. 6.400 lbs. of lead— is fitted to a keel stub, and bolted to the hull with 3/4" stainless bolts and nuts on S/S back plates. The rudder is attached to a skeg running aft from the keel, and mounted on a stainless-steel bearing assembly. The deck is balsa cored, except in areas where hardware is to be attached, where it is solid fiberglass. The hull/deck joint is a flanged arrangement that is glassed over and reinforced by stainless steel fasteners. The toe rail and stanchion bases are also fastened through this joint. The engine compartment is insulated from the sounds of engine. The boat is designed to be equipped with a saildrive.
The teak deck is reaching the end of its serviceable life; it could be renewed at a reasonable cost but a better option could be to replace it with GRP with non-slip paint. Both jobs that can be done at very reasonable cost in the boatyard where she is laid-up.
