|All About the this Boat|
Construction and Exterior Equipment
Construction of the 520 is straightforward. Its hull is hand-laid solid fiberglass below the waterline and PVC-cored above, as is the deck. Polyester resin is used throughout, and E-glass is added to the layup to reinforce high-load areas such as around the chainplates. A structural grid is glued and tabbed into the hull.
Water 180 gal
75 HP Volvo engine w/saildrive
Topside aft, an enormous, two-level swim platform folds up when on the move to secure the cockpit and provide seating for the helmsman at either of the twin wheels. At anchor, with the platform down, it gives the chef a place to stand when using the outdoor sink and grill. A drawer-style fridge under the drop-leaf teak cockpit table completes the outdoor gallery. Forward of the wheels, the crew can relax against the cockpit coamings on bench seats while underway; at anchor, panels fold up to turn those seats into sun lounges or outdoor bunks for sleeping under the stars.
This is the 3 Cabin, 3 head layout. Numerous overhead hatches let in light and air, and ports in the hull let you enjoy the view when seated below.
To starboard, at the foot of the companionway stairs, a desk to port slides ahead to become a forward-facing nav station while underway. It can also be tilted, depending on the tack youre on. When in port, the desk can be pushed aft and turned into an end table, and a fill-in cushion creates a full-length settee or extra sea berth.
The galley is located athwartships at the main bulkhead, leaving the beamiest part of the salon dedicated to living and entertaining space.
