THe construction of the hull is done with 12 layers of fibreglass alternated with 13 coats of resign. The hull is strengthened by six longitudinal stringers and crossed by five transverse ribs and bulkheads. The unidirectional fibreglass is impregnated with vinylester resign in the first layers, the structural strength obtained is well in excess of construction norms. For durability and water proofing of the external surfaces, NPG isopthalic gelcoat is used. The stainless steel reinforcements and supports are of stainless steel AISI 316 externally and AISI 304 internally, welded with tungsten electrodes through Arcotic process to resign corrosion. 
The bulkhead is marine plywood of 7 laminates and bounded to the hull with 60mm width of lamination applied to the edge of the bulkheads by hand, shaped and filleted to avoid any sharp sectional variations.
The deck is reinforced with termanto sandwich. This provides great shear strength, longevity, thermal and acoustic insulation.
The hull and deck are bonded together with a special structural epoxy adhesive which seals the surface perfectly to ensure a perfect bond between hull and deck.
The keel is bolted to the hull with eleven bolts of 22mm and 2 bolts of 14mm. The 7mm galvanised U metal brackets are positioned to distribute the keel loading over the strongest and most extensive layers of GRP. The resistance of the watertightness of the connection is highly improved with the application of an epoxy resign which acts as a structural glue.
THe chainplates are made of 12mm stainless steel and are fastened to the hull by 20mm stainless rods which in turn are secured to a fixing plate integrated into the main rib which supports the mast base.
The rudder shaft is 70mm diameter stainless steel bar with the rudder blade internal structure also being made of 300 mm stainless steel plates. The shaft turns in two bearings 755 mm apart with self-aligning ball bearing system which reduces friction to a minimum.
The hull has been coppercoated.

Liferaft X 6 persons.
Raymarine plotter with repeater at helm.
