"SORCHA" is a tri-deck motor yacht that is fully ABS-classed & MCA-compliant. She is constructed from resin-infused fiberglass composite with vinylester resinused in the hull and polyester resin used in the deck & house. The resin infusionprocess provides the optimum proportion ofresin content to reinforcing material(fiberglass or core). Resin infusion (SCRIMP) has many advantages such as lighter and stronger parts than those built by "hand-layup" or multi-stage vacuum-bagged methods. Her bottom has a double core of 1" cross linked polyurethane foam with a layer of fiberglass between. The deck and house have asingle layer of 1" cross linked polyethylene foam. She has solid glass in the way of stress points, such as windlass, anchor pockets, cleats, struts, bow thruster, rudders, through-hulls, etc. There is Kevlar in the bow from the stem aftapproximately 15 feet on each side since this is considered a high impact area. Thereis also Kevlar used as reinforcement in other areas of stress, such as the windlass,anchor pockets, cleats, struts, bow thruster, rudders, etc. Exterior styling and interior arrangement by the renowned designer Ward Setzer. The final product is a cutting-edge world• cruising vessel with the strength of a trawler and styling that will turnheads with her elegance.
She is built on 10 stations with O being the waterline at the bow and l O being thewaterline aft. She has bulkheads and frames as follows:
• "A" - Full bulkhead- rope locker
• "B" - Full bulkhead- forward chain locker
• "C" - Collision bulkhead- aft forepeak
• "D" - Partial bulkhead with wing frame - middle of crew area
• "E" - Full bulkhead- crew area
