    Right now we are in the process of designing an aluminium Classe 950 boat. However we haven't done any specific cost estimates for it. You can check out our progress here: http://www.classe950.eu

    Robust and durable construction, minimal maintenance, more UFO crash resistant , all within similar weights compared to standard composite construction.
