37M Trawler superstructure and hull joined

We are proud to announce that recently the hull and superstructure of our largest project ever, the Continental Trawler 37M, have joined. The hull and superstructure have been sandblasted and preserved both internally and externally.
Plumbing, piping and initial preparations for interior carpentry have already been started up.
Moreover the final interior design has been determined and approved. The classic (art nouveau inspired) Guido de Groot Design interior will be made of Entandrophragma cylindricum Sprague Mahogany combined with Mahogany Crotch and Madrona Burl inlays.
She features a 4-cabin layout (owner plus 6 guests) and accommodation area for a 6 person crew (divided over 3 cabins), incl. captain.
Her hull is equipped with the all new AntiRoll 2 axis retractable fin stabilizing system (the first yacht worldwide fitted with AntiRoll). As the owner was very open to adopt new and innovative features, he decided to implement this particular system.
The fins rotate during sailing (underway) and move up and down when moored or at anchor (zero-speed). The curved, high-aspect ratio fins reduce drag compared to conventional fin systems and have a positive effect on the fuel consumption.
The Trawler 37M is due for delivery in spring 2015.
