During the 2019 boating season, IFAI member Tecsew, located in Gosport, United Kingdom, took on a challenging project for a customer located in the United States. Due to the distance between fabricator and customer, questions and answers were exchanged via emails and a few long-distance telephone calls.
The customer provided the fabricator with access to a similar boat at Royal Clarence Marina in the UK so the fabricator could take measurements. The fabricator drew up the designs for the customer to approve. All CAD work was finalized while the boat was being built in France, with the canvas work constructed for fitting before the boat arrived in Gosport.
The Allures 45.9 was fitted with a sprayhood, sprayhood backdrop, bimini and bimini conversion in Sunbrella® Plus Persian Green (fabric supplied by the customer).
