Prices & Specification for v6.1 GRP Hull with Teak on Glass Deck

Petticrows “Teak on glass” Dragon combines the beauty of a wooden deck with the practicality of a GRP boat. Unlike a wooden decked boat, they require minimal maintenance and are a great solution for sailors who love the traditional look of the Dragon.

The hull and deck are GRP but during construction we create a small recess in the deck to allow a teak veneer deck to be laid in the recess. We carefully calculate the construction so that the boat weight and weight distribution fall within the usual parameters for a racing Dragon.

All other aspects of the v6.1 Dragon are the same as a standard GRP v6.1 Dragon

New features include:

  • Cockpit “side tanks” to reduce loose water moving around the cockpit with improved drainage systems
  • Increased cockpit size – by shortening the cabin roof
  • Double high-speed electric pump with solar charging and Bluetooth battery checkers
  • New deck non slip design – with great grip for the crew!
  • Option of traditional backstay/runner position or the new “aft cassette” which improves the angle of pull on the rigging- reducing mast compression for given load
  • Option of pump outlet on deck or topsides of boat (keeps the crews bum drier)
  • New cleat arrangement on cuddy top with visible cleating arrangement
  • 1 pull furler standard
  • Improved shroud adjustment and calibration at deck level and below deck

  • Fittings selected from Harken and Allen ranges as well as many custom designed and engineered fittings
  • New style low stretch, lightweight sheets
  • Option of traveller/barney post and chute/cockpit launch
  • New Evolution mast with modernised, light, low drag, easy serviceable fittings and improved mast bend characteristics. Used by winners of the 2018 Gold Cup and 2019 World Championship
  • Option for fixed or rotating gooseneck
  • Option for rigid or pneumatic boom lifter
  • Redesigned deck chocking system for the mast and breakwater feature
  • Improved detailing and simplification of fit out
  • Rope loops for mooring as standard
  • Crew hiking wedges as standard and ergonomic cockpit coamings
  • New improved construction methods for accurate alignment of hull, deck, keel and mast step/gate
