THE AKILARIA 950 is built from female tooling. The hull is infused using vinylester resin, glass and balsa core. The deck is infused using vinylester resin, glass and foam core. All the internal structures, transverse and longitudinal bulkheads are infused using vinylester resin, glass and foam cores. The centerline structure and keel box area are built using the infusion process and are solid glass and vinylester resin.
Plexus (méthacrylate) adhesive is used through-out. This material guarantees a mechanical as well as chemical bond. The deck to hull joint is also glued together with Plexus. All stanchions, pushpits and pulpits are through bolted through the hull to deck joint. All the internal structures are in composite: bunks, furniture, etc. Every piece and component is carefully built. A comprehensive practice of weighing each part during the building process is used to guarantee that each boat is the same.

Steering System:
Upper and lower self-aligning JP3 bearings. Centerline, bearing supported jump shaft incorporates twin tiller arms. Port and starboard adjustable con-rods attach centerline tiller arms to rudder stocks. One centerline tiller with extension controls both rudders. Rudder stocks are built in F16PH stainless steel. Stock diameter is 44 mm to align with rudder profiles.

Deck and Cockpit:
The cockpit was conceived in order to optimize the ease and efficiency of sailing maneuvers for either single handed or crewed sailing. The center line tiller is equipped with a large bearing and Spinlock tiller extension to give the helm nice response and make driving fun. Cockpit tooling, including seats, helming station, foot rests and line organization have been designed and laid out to optimize ergonomics and sailing enjoyment. Transom security has been established with a central arch stanchion spanning the life raft box which can also be used for antennas and the LED stern light. Pushpits on each aft outboard corner allow for secure attachment of double life lines. All stanchions are fabricated in 316L stainless steel.
