Today marked the completion of the carbon bowsprit. The first series of the Alpha 42 catamarans will receive a clear carbon bowsprit as standard equipment. It will extend more than 5′ beyond the reverse bows of the boat and will be self supporting (without bobstays). This bowsprit will form the tack point of the powerful Gennaker or Code-Zero which will provide extra horsepower in lighter winds. Work on the interior is progressing with most of the oak veneer cabinetry completed. Presently the main systems and the electric nervous system of the boat are being installed.
