Swarbrick Yachts in Henderson, Western Australia have just completed the CNC profiling of our composite nose moulds. The design of this nose has taken several years to complete.

The extensive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has been carried out by the Soto Group in NSW and Curtin University in Perth. Our completed nose will use Nuplex Composite products exclusively, is designed to minimise lifting moments and is capable of withstanding the extreme forces and heat generated by a car travelling at speeds up to mach 1.4 (450 metres per second).
