The hull is monolithic GRP and glass fibre construction. Its overall structure is reinforced by longitudinal and local reinforcements (e.g. near keel, rudder, chain plates, deck line). The hull is given optimal protection from osmosis by applying a first coat of protective resin. A structural monolithic inner moulding of bi-axial and unidirectional fabrics is bonded and laminated to the hull at various points.
Its structural role is important as it takes and absorbs the stresses at stress points (e.g. chain plate tie rods, keel, rudder, etc.) and spreads any loads, guaranteeing reduced strain on the hull. It also ensures a good finish to the bilges and makes cleaning and maintenance easier.
The floors support the mechanical elements (engine, et.) and wate tanks. Structural marine plywood bulkheads are fixed to the hull for improved rigidity. The hull is white or grey in colour with grey livery.

The deck is manufactured by infusion (sandwich/glass fibre/balsa/synthesis polyester) construction for optimal strength/weight ratio. Reinforced monolithic areas are laid under the deck gear (winches, rails, chain plates, cleats). All working and circulation areas on deck are non-slip. An inner moulding is bonded to the deck interior to improve its finish.
An integral monolithic inner moulding containing the structural deck-beams is bonded to the deck for a perfect finish (integral lighting, finish, acccess to screw points for fixing the deck gear, etc.).

HULL/DECK JOINT The deck is fixed mechanically to the hull by screws fixing the teak toe rails and items of deck gear (cleats, chain plates, bow fittings etc.).
The deck is bonded to the hull with polyurethane bonding for improved holding, and a joint guarantees watertightness.
At stress points the hull/deck is reinforced with lamination around the transom.
