64' Progress

The W64' Hull Design has been completed and the jig is assembled.  Once Rhodes Yacht Design completes the 3-d Hull Design, the model is taken to 2-d and a framework (or "jig") is created in AutoCAD.  The jig is cut from plywood with our in-house CNC machine.  Essentially, the hull jig assembles like a big puzzle.
We are all excited about the construction commencement of this vessel.  Though, currently, all specifications of this Rhodes Design are confidential, we can say that this 64' is designed for long range travel and low fuel consumption.
