Construction

MOKEN’s hull is constructed of high quality, shot peened ship steel, sand blasted inside and out. The vessel is constructed to China Classification Society (CCS) practice. This includes a CCS certified weld x-ray of the entire hull and internal structural steel, and a CCS incline test to check stability.

There is a watertight crash bulkhead in the bow, with a commercial ship quality, dogged down hatch. Four commercial, dogged down, aluminum seadoors on the interior bulkheads provide 5 watertight compartments.

To protect the hull, three coats of International Paints epoxy primer were applied to the interior and exterior, with four coats of epoxy primer on the bottom.

Below the waterline, the hull was finished with Chugoku bottom paint. Above, the decks are white Dupont Imron and the hull is forest green Alexseal. A light grey Kiwi Grip anti skid was also applied on deck. The hull and topsides are fully faired. In fact, the hull is so straight that it looks like a fiberglass boat. There is a stainless balanced rudder and an integral swim and boarding platform.

MOKEN is built for worldwide cruising in both hot and cold climates with sprayed expanding foam insulation throughout the entire boat. Sound insulation surrounds the engine room to reduce engine noise while underway.

Inside, selected A-grade fine grain teak veneer has been used throughout for a high quality finish.
