COMPOSITE

BENEFITS

Our engineers have set up a construction methodology that meets the five most important specificities :

performance
PERFORMANCE
Our structures such as the hull, decking, roof and superstructure are entirely made of foam / fibreglass sandwich. The reinforced areas are assembled with specific materials such as carbon and Kevlar®. The overall weight saving obtained by the use of these materials allows higher sailing speeds than those made of steel.
amagnetique
AMAGNETIC

Use of non-magnetic materials: hull and superstructure composed of a glass-resin sandwich (CVR)
In addition to these natural characteristics, we are implementing specific magnetic immunization studies to reduce any residual magnetic influence on board in order to define a very low acoustic signature to avoid triggering acoustic ignitions.

corrosion
CORROSION RESISTANCE
One of the most remarkable features of this composite is its total insensitivity to oxidation. This quality allows considerable reductions in maintenance costs and downtime.
climat
CLIMATE RESISTANT
Composite offers natural insulation through the succession of layers that compose it. We generally find a thickness of foam in the middle of this assembly which will bring stiffness but also an important sound and thermal insulation. Thanks to this technology, our vessels adapt to all environments and navigate in the worst weather conditions without any difficulty.
shock
SHOCK MITIGATION

The custom design hull provide better shock mitigation with specific FEA studies about the sea impact on the hull. Ours vessel are equipped by special shock mitigation seats to increase the operator comfort on board

EASY REPAIR
In the event of an accident, repairs to fiberglass, carbon and Kevlar® structures do not require any special equipment, power supply or major welding equipment. Nor does it involve certification of the repair by an outside agency. Our teams are authorized to train you to familiarize you with its repair techniques and then do it yourself, with ease.
