ESMERALDE went into construction in mid-February, 2005. 

The gel coat, which is Smoke White, was sprayed around February 15, and the glass work and Divinycell core were laid up in the following week.  She was popped from the mould on February 22, and went into the "alignment" (interior) stage the following day.  On March 30 she entered the "Decking" stage.  On Friday April 15 she entered, the Keel, or final completion, stage.

It was incredible to watch the progress!  The Sabre crews truck right along.  Thanks to e-mail photographs from trusty Amanda and a few road trips to Maine, we were able to watch the process unfold before our eyes.

Now it's your turn to enjoy the construction process.   Check out the progress of the boat in its successive stages of completion,.
