From the latest Vacuum Resin Infusion process, using all vinylester resin and PVC closed cell composite sandwich construction, with multi-directional, non-woven reinforcements, and Carbon Fibre strengthening on the full-length stringers. The core increases panel stiffness and reduces the weight usually associated with solid GRP boats. This offers great strength and robustness in the event of a collision.
