Hull and deck         A vacuum bagged high tech sandwich construction. only uni- and bi-directional glass were

                         used (exception surface mat) oriented in directions of the calculated stress factors. Only

                         Isopolyester of highest quality was used with 20mm Divinycell as core material. This Construction

                         is essential to assure a high sheer resistance.

                         The result is a tremendously strong, stiff and well insulated yacht in spite of the fact that the

                         weight of the hull and deck is only about 450kg.

                         The composite construction of the mast-step to carry the load from the mast and the fiber glass

                         reinforcement of the hull for the chain plates, the longitudinals and the keel area is one integretad


                         The hull is treated with epoxy below waterline and painted with Awl-Grip on freeboards.

Keel and rudder      The ballast bulb keel is of lead with antimony. The keel-bolts and the rudder post are of acid resistant stainless steel.
