Built of mahogany on oak they come with a pair of leathered sweeps, a pair of bronze rowlocks, a brass ringbolt in stem and sternpost, a brass keelband and brass bilge rubbing bands, mahogany capping rails and fitted sole boards. The standard finish is an oiled interior, with gloss varnish topsides, capping, gunwhales, thwarts and knees, a gold inlaid cove line and carved scroll work and paint below the waterline.
