Ocean Star 56.1
Tested by Yachting World - June 2003
From first descending the wide, flat and solid
companionway steps to see if I could make the
interior doors rattle in their frames, I was impressed.
Seriously impressed. Detail throughout is great, the
general construction substantial and sturdy, the
layout appealing and the finish attractive.
The 56.1 we tested had a five-cabin layout, offering
two aft doubles, two midship doubles and a forward
twin bunk cabin designed as a skipper / crew cabin.
Her five heads might lead you to think the layout
would compromise on space, particularly in the
saloon, but partly thanks to a beamy hull, this is not the case.
All Ocean Star yachts are hand-built and the
laminates are generally 30 per cent thicker than the
design drawings specify. Gelcoat is hand-applied to
the mould; blue gelcoat is standard. The hulls are
built in two halves, which not only means a flange
can be moulded for the hull / deck join, but it allows
the lamination of the two halves to be done in a
relatively flat area on the fore and aft mid-point of the hull.
The laminate is pretty much solid throughout, with
only a couple of foam strips. A two-piece inner
moulding grid is laminated in, as are the bulkheads,
both top and bottom. A 15mm steel plate on each
side takes the load from the chain plates on the 56.1
and is laminated into the hull sides, gaining
additional support from being bonded to one of the
longitudinal hull stringers. As well as flange and
lamination, the hull / deck join is also bolted every 15cm.
