The hull is single-skinned GRP construction.
Reinforced points (keel, rudder, chain plates, hull-deck joint) help to strengthen the structure.
A structural inner moulding is bonded and laminated to the hull. Its structural role is important as it takes and absorbs the stresses at pressure points (shroud chainplate tie rods, keel, rudder, etc.), and spreads any loads guaranteeing reduced strain on the hull.
The surface of the inner moulding makes cleaning easier and provides a better finish.
The standard hull colour is white with blue and gold decoration; Steel Blue is available as an option.
