The Features and Construction of the Bullseye Sailboat

Construction by the current boat builder, Cape Cod Shipbuilding Co. ®, begins by prepping and spraying the gelcoat into the molds. Fiberglass mat is then hand-laid into the gelcoat. The flat area of the deck is reinforced with Corecell, a structural closed cell foam core. This core material enhances rigidity of flat surfaces without problems of rot, delamination or saturation.

The hull, floor, and deck are then fiberglassed together, which also creates the two flotation tanks, one under the floor and the other in the bow. Together, these tanks keep the boat afloat when full of water.

The lead keel, weighing 750 lbs., is then externally installed with five stainless steel keelbolts. Not only is this ballast part of what makes her such a sturdy vessel, but if put aground, the keel absorbs the shock, making her a safe vessel.

In the final stages of construction, vinyl rubrail is installed for protection. Teak toerails and coamings are handmade, and installed with screws and bungs. The varnished ash tiller and fiberglass rudder are attached with pintles and gudgeons.

The Zephyr aluminum mast and boom come standard with roller reefing boom and stainless steel standing rigging with turnbuckles. The varnished spruce self-tacking jib club comes standard with every Bullseye. This allows the skipper to tack the boat without adjusting the jib sheet. The jib club is bent to giver the working jib shape on either tack.

Any one design that has been in steady construction since the 50's is proof of its success. Boats built then are still competitively racing with boats built today.
