Hull and deck of sandwich construction of carbon fibre reinforced vinylester with a 20 mm core of Divinycell. Solid laminate used for rudder, engine bed, keel attachment, all through-hull and other fittings. Vacuum bagged laminate to hull and deck for maximum control of laminate thickness and fibre content. White hull and deck are standard with two inserted dark blue waterlines and racing stripe. The deck is glued to the hull with winylester glue.
Construction of Arcona boats is highly advanced. We don't believe in cutting corners. Instead of using inner liners, we laminate bulkheads and berth fronts to hull and deck, providing unsurpassed strength and torsion stability.
The Arcona 465 has all structural bulkheads laminated to the hull and deck. A centrally placed steel girder bolted to the main bulkhead and to laminated glass fibre stringers efficiently takes up the loads from the keel and rig.
The keel is an antimony hardened T-shaped lead bulb bolted to a cast-iron fin, to obtain the lowest possible centre of gravity. Steel blade protected from rust by a layer of glass fibre faired to a smooth finish.
The rudder is made of carbon fibre, filled with polyurethane foam; rudder stock of solid water-resistant aluminium laminated into the rudder. Self-aligning roller bearings to minimise friction; the rudder is also supported axially by ball bearings.
Arcona 465 is fitted with twin carbon wheels and cable steering for optimal responsiveness and feel., rudder quadrant mounted on rudder stock. Emergency tiller mount on top of rudder stock. 2 steering pedestals equipped with sturdy stainless steel pedestal guards, room for a 12” plotter on each guard.
