Construction:
The hull material selected is the M-Foam sandwich rein-
forced with fiberglass and epoxy resin. All the bulkheads,
frames, and storage areas onboard are made with this ma-
terial. The joining of all these parts create the global
strength of the structure. This assembly gives great rigidity
to the hull at low weight.
The flat-panel technology reduced the need for special tools
by the shipyard and decreased the construction lead time
for this semi custom project without using mold. The result
is a magnificent boat with high standard of finish built in
just 6,000 hours of labor.

Efficiency:
The beautiful design of the hulls provides performance be-
yond our expectation both from the point of view of con-
sumption or maximum speed:

LPH
At its medium cruise speed of 15 knots, it consumes 2 x
20.6 LPH
At its high cruise speed of 17 knots, it consumes 2 x 23.9
