This is the largest charter sailboat in San Diego. While the 54 DS design represents a leap into the future, Jeanneau continues to build boats the old-fashioned way. The hull is solid hand-laid fiberglass; it and the keel structure are supported by fiberglass over wood floors and stringers, which create a rugged internal framework. These individual floors are laminated directly to the hull, as are the primary bulkheads and the furniture facings, producing a rigid structure that can take a pounding. This time-consuming stiffening technique is in contrast to those that use molded hull liners.
