Hull and deck of sandwich construction of multiaxial glass 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.

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 rudder is made of glass fibre with multiaxial roving, 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
