- IThe hull construction is of diviny-cell and
"E" glass, and is nicely flared with 'U' shaped sections forward
running into flatter sections aft.ot house. The upper cabin top has a pair of ventilation
hatches and some grab rails but is otherwise clear. The genoa tracks are
inboard on the side decks and the sheets lead aft to just behind the
helmsman. The cockpit is split into two separate areas. The top section is
raised to help see over the pilothouse while steering and has a ice box
built into the centre to help brace oneself while heeling over. The seats
are on top of the coamings which are extra wide for this purpose. Just
behind the helmsman are the sail control winches for the headsail and
gennaker sheets, the windward side also doubles as the running backstay
winch. These are mounted on pods which are at standing height from the
second cockpit. The mainsheet is attached to the traveller which is raised
above the tiller in the upper cockpit, This can be easily removed from the
main car so a bimini cover can be installed over the cockpits from the radar
- The aft cockpit is open plan with a
large shallow locker under the sole for such items as dive bottles. Aft
is another locker which was designed as a live bait tank that would have to
be pumped full by the deck wash pump, as it is completely above waterline.
Each side of the cockpit is a locker built under the side decks. The transom
door is hinged and stayed horizontally to increase floor space. This area
becomes ideal for pulling the dinghy up while motoring from bay to bay.
- The rig is a triple spreader fractional configuration,
with topmast stays. The spreaders are slightly swept aft and the cap shrouds
are attached at the gunwales while the lower are inboard on the
coamings, for easy movement to the foredeck. The headsail is slightly over
lapping and is fitted to a roller furler. The gennaker prod fold up
vertically to reduce length whilst on the mariner. The sail plan is large
but is offset by a deep bulb keel with high lift foil shapes on the fin.
- The interior layout has a double bunk forward
with the toilet just aft and off to starboard. This has a separate
shower compartment with a seat built in that has the holding tank below. The
shower area is vented by a opening port light in the coaming. In the
companionway to port is the navigation area with a freezer built
underneath and stowage lockers forward. Stepping into the pilothouse is
a interior helm station to port forward of the adequate galley unit.
Opposite to starboard is the raised 'U' shaped dinette for visibility while
seated. The table can lower for another bunk if required. Under the saloon
seating is the engine room amidships and outboard is a single bunk. Aft
under the raised cockpit is another big double bunk which can be slept
on fore and aft or athwartships.
- The motoring performance comes from a
80hp diesel which should drive the light to moderate displacement vessel to
approximately 10 knots. The hull has a trim tab that can be lowered to help
prevent the stern from squatting.
