Bonito Class

The Alan Buchanan Bonito used a glass fibre hull made by Seamaster.  The hull was a composite construction with wooden stringers running length ways to stiffen the boat. By today’s standards many such boats of that era were over engineered, but the result was a strong and stiff structure.

The hulls were then passed to Stebbings who built the timber deck and interior with traditional methods and materials. The deck was made up of teak on ply laid over a mahogany frame.

The coach roof was made of 3/4 inch marine ply again fixed to a mahogany frame.  The interior was set up to sleep 5.
