Built 2006, Mahogany hull with walnut and teak topsides, the interior is lined with kevlar and carbon fibre. The whole boat is encapsulated in epoxy and polyurethane resins, inside and out. The finish is protected by multiple layers of protective coating similar to that on a metallic car paint. That results in long life with low maintenance. The construction techniques used are similar to those used to produce aircraft and racing craft, giving a very high strength to weight ratio.The stiffness and thickness of the hull is much greater than a typical boat, but is lighter.
