Unique to our shells, over and above their exceptional quality, performance and durability, is the amazing range of woods and finishes that we offer those who seek a high-performance racing shell of outstanding character.
Our classic and most familiar shell is, of course, the Custom. You may have this in your free choice/mix of Mahoganies and Cedar outer veneers, with Maple deck stripes.
However, the Special model allows you to have the finish and detailing of your dreams, without compromising performance or durability. It is impossible to give the full range of veneer options and pricing as these depend on client preference, current availability and our professional assessment of the suitability of these veneers.
These are some of the more attractive woods that we can build your Special in...
A Dark purplish-black veneer with a fine-featured close grain.
Champagne, with the “bird’s eyes” providing the bubbles – this beautiful yet serviceable finish is best used for decks only.
Strongly-figured grain with blacks through reds to amber/white – a strong and aesthetically pleasing statement.
Rippling, glowing golden colour with holographic shimmer – the boat blazes with flashes of light in low sun.
Hard, black, American Tulipwood, with a soft grain just visible, is striking in its simplicity and makes a very light boat.
Despite the name, a dark purplish-grey wood that mellows to warm ochre and brown, usually with a strongly featured grain. This beautiful traditional wood is very tough and durable and is our most affordable Special.
All of our veneers are from approved sources, sustainably grown and legally harvested. However, due to ethical concerns, we no longer stock Brazilian-sourced veneers.
