CONSTRUCTION Steel hull, Aluminium superstructure, Teak laid decks
The hull and decks are entirely built of welded steel (shipbuilding quality, grade AH36), according to the Classification Society rules: AH36 is used up to main deck only (including forecastle).
The superstructure is built of AA5083 H321 light alloy (for plates) and 6082 T6 light alloy (for extruded stiffeners and large extrusions used for decks, bulkheads and sides). Depending on strength/stability calculations and detailed design, the first tier is built (in whole or in part) by means of the same steel of the hull (shipbuilding quality, grade AH36).
