The design gives a sensible sea kindly displacement hull. Her underwater profile has a deep forefoot with a classic fishing trawler profile. Twin bilge keels allow the yacht to be beached, protect and propellers and provide lateral stability in running conditions.
They also are effective in reducing rolling particularly at anchor. The twin rudders are mounted at the aft end of the keels immediately behind the propellers
The hull has been thoroughly tank tested by the designer Thanos Condylis at the ship testing facility of the South China University of Technology in Guangzhou. The hull has been built with certified marine-grade BS43A steel that continues to the upper boat deck. The pilothouse complete with Portuguese deck was built with laminates pre-impregnated with epoxy resin and vacuum bagged.
This gives Dragon’s Lair a very strong assembly, and in addition, the windows are fitted with toughened tinted glass.
On the lower deck, there is an aft master cabin that has a queen-size double with on-suite heads and shower compartment. Forward, there are two guest cabins, one with a double and the other with twin bunk beds. Both cabins have en-suite heads with showers.
Further on the lower deck, is a crew cabin with twin “up & over” berths, a head and shower and clothes storage.
On the upper boat deck is an enclosed pilothouse with Portuguese bridge.
