About this MARTEN YACHTS Judel/Vrolijk Marten 80



RCD Status: The yacht conforms with the essential safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC or RCDII (2013/53/EU as appropriate (Recreational Craft Directive) and is categorised A – “Ocean” (or Cat B – whichever is appropriate)


The structural design has been carried out in such a manner that it complies with both the spirit and intent of Germanischer Lloyds and the in-house experience and capabilities of High Modulus NZ to produce a sound, reliable structure.


Hull, Deck & Superstructure Construction:

  • The hull is built on a male mould using a sandwich construction based on a PVC foam core with an E-Glass laminate. The basic hull thickness is approx. 56mm.
  • The hull core is a mixture of three densities of core material – 130kg/m3 Corecell in forward bottom sections, 100kg/m3 Corecell in forward topsides and aft bottom sections and 80kg/m3 Herex in aft topsides areas.
  • The skin laminates are primarily E-glass with areas of carbon unidirectional to increase longitudinal bending stiffness and transverse stiffness in the area of the main mast.
  • The laminate has been reduced to solid skin or unidirectional tapings have been added locally to reinforce areas such as bow thruster, keel area, port lights, propeller shaft, propeller p-bracket and lower rudder bearing.
  • The laminate structures have been consolidated using vacuum bag techniques with an elevated temperature post-cure process in accordance with the resin manufacturer’s specifications to ensure the resin system is cured to a level which will provide the correct mechanical properties, resistance to chemicals and stability.
  • The internal structure is a combination of full composite bulkheads, stiffener reinforced plywood bulkheads and composite deep frames and structure.
  • The deck structure is built in five sections on a female mould using a sandwich construction based on a PVC foam core with an E-Glass laminate. The basic deck shell thickness varies.
  • The deck core is all 80kg/m3 Herex PVC foam with local areas of reinforcement for highly loaded areas. These areas are reinforced with additional E-Glass and balsa core.
  • The main deck, cockpit deck, cockpit seating, and coaming around the cockpit are covered with laid teak. The deck is laid with 15mm teak planking bonded to the composite deck. All the teak decking apart from the cockpit was replaced during the 2022 as in poor condition. The deck today remains in excellent condition.
  • Chain plates are of a composite construction.
  • The yacht (hull and topside) is painted with a two-part Awlgrip HDT ‘Off White’ finish (2022) The deck and coach roof surfaces are painted using International ‘Off White’ of the same type. Cove stripes and Boot top stripes are painted in International Oxford Blue.
  • The underwater sections are painted with Copper Coat antifouling (Renewed August 2023), giving maintenance-free underwater.
  • Spare anodes are carried on board for the keel, engine shaft and bow thruster. Anodes last changed May 2024.


Keel & Rudder:

  • The keel consists of two halves, an upper foil section fin and a bulb. Total weight of the fin and bulb is approximate 17,500kgs.
  • The upper foil section of the keel is fabricated from stainless steel of varying thickness.
  • The fin is bolted into a recess in the underside of the hull with 26x M30 countersunk head cap screws and five centre line studs.

  • The bulb is fixed to the stainless steel fin by 13x 1 ½” UNC studs.
  • The approximate weight of the cast bulb is 14,500kgs.
  • Keel bolts checked in August 2023 while keel was re-faired by Berthon (Spain)
