Owen Clarke's 40' lifting keel blue water cruising yacht that's been under construction in Chile has a new look. The deck concept having taken a new turn  during construction,  while the interior  layout has remained much the same. A 270 degree wrap around window coachroof has been designed and engineered, altering the extrnal aesthetic of the yacht from sports cruiser to be more in line with its explorer function
