This is the "Botin and Carkeek" designed 43. Outstanding construction quality, comprising galvanized steel reinforcing frame to receive the LEAD keel, keel-stepped mast, and the rigging loads. This together with a closed-cell foam core hull above the water line creates an extremely stiff hull with an ultra-low centre of gravity for unrivalled windward performance and overall speed. A true cruiser/racer!! Every aspect of design has been carefully considered, resulting in a faster, stiffer, stronger and higher quality yacht in all areas. Technology and deck ergonomics make this not only faster, but easier to manage whilst sailing short-handed.
The interior layout comprises three double sleeping cabins with two heads compartments.
At Cantiere del Pardo, maximum priority is given to the question of safety and structural strength.
The galvanized steel grid, which is attached to the hull with a metal/acrylic chemical bond and further reinforced with a multiaxial cloth, provides stiffness and strength unheard of in laminated hull structures.
The one piece grid structure is designed to uniformly distribute keel, mast and chain plate loads.
This has the added advantage of lowering the C of G of the boat and also improving the stiffness of the hull thus providing the owner with superior sailing characteristics.
