All the decks and hulls of Aureus Yachts have an infused sandwich structure with a closed cell foam core. This guarantees great rigidity and lightness for the topsides (25% lighter than for monolithic fabrications, without any foam core). Closed cell PVC foam is very lightweight and adds rigidity (by its thickness) whilst keeping the weight of the composite to a minimum.
Aureus XV is available in the following versions:
• Absolute: Full Carbon structure (carbon/PVC foam sandwich with epoxy resin). Absolute hulls are painted.
• Essential: Hybrid structure (glass fibre, carbon fibre reinforcements, PVC foam. Gelcoat and exterior insulation are made with the vinylester resin, the rest of the structure uses an epoxy resin)
