It's a wood composite, designed by Tom Wylie and built by Schooner Creek Boat Works in Portland, Oregon. Very high tech-- stronger and lighter than fiberglass per foot. They also built Ocean Planet, an Open 60 designed by Wylie and raced in the Vendee Globe.

Schooner Creek is my chosen yard in Portland, Oregon. I like the owner and he does good work for designers like Wylie and Robert Perry. I've seen several of their boats, and they have clean lines and interiors. If I could afford a custom build, I'd give him a call.
