The first of three Vertue class yachts to have their keels laid in 1999 two of which were to be ordered by German clients, this with the increasingly popular and well tried Vertue II hull was built using strip planking on plywood frames and web-frames. The layout of frames being coordinated with the interior arrangement of the first G.R.P production boat Vertue Voyager and coincidentally that of the much earlier Vertue XXXV.
Dietmar selected the masthead rig with aluminium spars. Deck layout is short cockpit and long doghouse which became the trend in most of the later yachts.
