Construction of the 56 is in GRP - foam sandwich, using unidirectional and bidirectional cloths, bonded together with isophthalic resin, and a PVC foam core. The boats are laid up in a female mould, with vacuum-bagging to ensure a complete bond between the laminates and foam. The concept is a craft designed for the sunniest regions of the world, both for private owners or charter use, but with the capabilities of long passage-making or ocean crossings if required. Special features of the design aimed for use in hot climates include the overhang of the cabin roof, which stops the direct rays of the sun from hitting the windows, and prevents the greenhouse effect from raising the interior temperature. This is combined with ten wide-opening hatch-windows around the saloon, plus hatches in the insides of the hulls, to give excellent ventilation in the hottest of conditions. The sail plan is designed for ease of handling, with a big main, but small, easily tacked jib, with no overlap.
