Below are notes from the local John Simpson Ltd Marine design team when she was completed: Banks Marine Ltd was the builder – 50 Pilothouse is the model:
Objective: A coastal cruiser with an efficient hull at modest speeds (8 to 12 knots) but with the ability to achieve higher speeds 12 to 20 knots) if required. Hull Form- The hull is of a moderate deadrise ‘V’ type semi-displacement hard chine with molded in spray rail above the waterline. It is most suitable for vessels operating at moderate speeds (speed/length ratios of 1.5 to 3) and offers good performance potential with economy of operation as well as excellent tracking and sea-keeping properties. And, since there is no chine ‘flat’ near the water there is no annoying ‘wave slapping’ when moored on a quiet night. Construction The hull is of welded marine grade aluminum with scantlings in compliance with American Bureau of Shipping rules. Framing consists of longitudinal ‘T’ bars spaced approximately 14″ on center supported by transverse web frames spaced approximately 45″ on center. We have used full conically developed panels on both bottom and topsides to facilitate plating and to minimize the use of fairing compounds in finishing. The superstructure is of welded aluminum similar to the hull with special attention to fairness and corner detailing.
