Epoxy is the standard for luxury Sailing Yachts as the Baltic and Wally Yachts. This Epoxy Boat construction is also used by Hanse Yachts. Hanse Yachts is one of a few production boat builders who have implemented the use of Epoxy resin into their new e line: Hanse 470 and Hanse 540 and Hanse 630. In the past, Epoxy resins have only been selected for semi-production and race boats, where reduced weight and laminate quality are key factors. Changes in boat style, onboard equipment and expectations of boat owners means that Epoxy resins are becoming necessary to offer a boat that performs well on the water. • Hanse Yachts: Advantages of Epoxy • Better adhesive properties (the ability to bond to the reinforcement or core) • Longer working time, reducing building phase and secondary bonding • Superior mechanical properties (particularly Strength and Stiffness) from material itself and through process ability (vacuum bagging, optimum strength to weight ratio) • Improved resistance to fatigue and micro cracking. Epoxy resins are superior at withstanding cyclic loads and therefore Epoxy boat hulls stay stiffer for longer. • Reduced degradation from water ingress. Due to the building method chosen by Hanse Yacht, the effect of osmosis is completely removed, but limited to the outer surface of the boat. There is no possibility of osmosis on the structure. • Reduced hull weight compared to Polyester through increased strength and stiffness of Epoxy laminates (at design stage). • As a guideline, a 45-50 foot boat built in Epoxy can weight up to 1000kg less than it’s equivalent polyester version.
We wish her new owners fair winds and following seas.
