Description / Construction
Extensive hydrodynamic research has been invested in this new high performance cruiser.
The hull and main stringers are moulded in a one-shot process using highly advanced technology.This technique is said to improve the strength and mechanical properties of the hull laminate by as much as 50%. The hull's powerful inner structure ensures that all loads from the keel and rig are distributed effectively with minimum hull flexing.
This attention to detail gives the helmsman and crew a confident feeling of safety, control and comfort during navigation in every kind of sea and wind conditions.
