Cape Scott Yachts
Cape Scott’s styling and comfort, fuel economy and sea kindliness all speak for themselves, but safety is Cape Scott’s primary mission. Safety and freedom from worry by enhancing the vessels lifesaving structural integrity that allows you to safely cruise anywhere in almost any weather conditions. Using “Lloyds Registry” rules for building steel hulls and following their guidelines for building the Hull structure to comply with “ice class IC “ regulations, Cape Scott also adds additional watertight and fireproof bulkheads. Other safety measures include four independent bilge evacuation systems, fully equipped fire stations, and many more.

Beaching & Haul Out
Armoured Hull
The hull is divided into six watertight compartments for increased protection against fire protection and flooding, and to maintain stable upright buoyancy in the unlikely event of a breach in the hull. Watertight compartments are accessed through dogged watertight doors and/or hatches.
For added security and safety, Cape Scott offers, as a standard feature, a hull built to comply with Lloyd’s Registry Ice Class. Although most vessels will never encounter ice , the increased framing and hull plate thickness in areas most susceptible to damage are reinforced to resist any type of impact, enhancing a Cape Scott’s survivability and durability.

Beaching & Haul Out
When beached, Cape Scott’s have a specially designed box keel that supports the vessel’s weight on virtually impenetrable 1 3/16th inch (30 mm) plate steel, with additional lateral stability provided by the protective propeller skegs that are engineered to smooth water flow over the propellers.
"Propellers and rudders are protected by reinforced structural steel skegs and shoes which are built to support the vessel when it is hauled out or beached."
