The deck and deckhouse sides are cored fiberglass sandwich with a foam cored flybridge molding.  Frameless deckhouse windows with half-inch thick laminated, one-piece side windows that give the boat a great dock appearance.

Boat has been painted with Awlgrip from hardtop to rubrail 2021, Cockpit and aft deckhouse bulkhead 2022.  Forward deckhouse mask is a vinyl wrap.
