The Tiderace layups are designed by and unique to them and not shared across the other manufacturers based at Cobra.
Some processes are shared, such as the interlocking 'biscuit-tin' deck/hull joint, curing and so on, but there are many differences, too.
What is clear is that the factory in Thailand can produce specification far better than could be found in the UK or Europe. That particularly includes the Tiderace models built in Finland, which were nice looking but nowhere near the quality or technology now found from Thailand.
