Offshore hulls feature a generous beam and finely-veed, deep, forefoot tapering to a 12-degree deadrise at the transom. This design produces a hull that is quick to get on plane and knifes cleanly through waves and chop throughout the speed range. A long shallow keel, low center of gravity, and substantial displacement result in a gentle easy motion with excellent directional stability and boat handling characteristics
Offshore utilizes the best frp materials available including solid hand laminated "Knytex" bi & uni-directional fabric and vinylester resins below the waterline. This provides greater strength and reduced weight over conventional woven roving / mat construction. Above the water line closed cell "Core Cell" material is vacuum bagged to the same bi and uni-directional fabric using isothalic and vinylester resins.
Below the waterline, Offshore's solid hand laminate achieves maximum strength and maximum osmosis protection while providing the best compression strength for the installation of running gear, "V" struts, stabilizers and all through the hull bottom fittings.
Above the waterline vacuum bagging assures the best saturation and adhesion of the foam core sandwich material and eliminates excessive resin.
The main deck and cabin is one laminated component which is laminated to the hull. The boat deck, fly bridge, and pilothouse roof is one fiberglass component which is laminated to the cabin structure. When these three individual modules are laminated together an extremely strong, rigid and water tight uni-structure is formed that meets or exceeds ABS requirements. Four massive full length stringers and multiple thwartship frames are laminated and bonded in the hull to minimize panel size and achieve incredible hull strength.
Heavy laminates at the bow form a watertight compartmentalization of the bow area creating a "crash bulkhead". Bilge areas are divided into four sections to further increase water tight integrity. Each section has its own automatic bilge pump. Massive main bulkheads consist of multiple layers of balsa cored fiberglass and each are insulated with multiple insulation materials designed for each bulkhead's sound requirements.
Engineered insulation at engine room overhead & bulkheads and master stateroom bulkheads utilize multiple layers of varying types of sound deadening/sound absorbing materials to minimize engine noise and to also insure maximum privacy.
Incorporated in the hulls construction are two heavily laminated rub rails that are structural components of the hull. The substantial rub rails, capped with solid stainless steel, increase the strength of the hull sides & protect the hull when coming alongside a piling or dock. The joint between cabin sides and overhead is bonded with frp and finished in gel coat, not caulking.
