Construction of the hull

The shell and decks are made by vacuum process in sandwich construction with epoxy resin.
The outer layer of the shell and deck is made of carbon fiber, diagonally layered in the bow to give more torsional stiffness.

The inner layer consists of Kevlar fiber or alternatively of the pricier fine carbon fiber fabric. The sandwich core consists of a Nomex honeycomb.

Seat deck and bulkhead are made of carbon fiber sandwich with a foam core under high pressure and CNC milling.

The gunwale is provided with a multiple carbon fiber doubling and on the inside is reinforced with a carbon layer across the entire inner surface. The profile is a carbon angle edge.
