Hull 4005 has been christened as "Gene Machine" following, "Namaste" (4004), "Mustang Sally" (4003), "Aphrodite" (4002) and the first hull, "Miss Michelle". Gene Machine has been manufactured in composite materials like her sisters. The design is by Taylor Olson, William Garden on the naval architecture while the interior was in-house by Westport.
