The construction materials used are resin infused epoxy in combination with Carbon, Twaron, Nomex and Divinycell foam ans is spray painted with 2 K paint in order to keep the weight as low as possible. She has Twaron/ Kevlar protection both on the inside and outside of her hulls from the waterline down, since this yacht will operated in areas with coral.
