The Beneteau 323
Standard Equipment and Options
CONSTRUCTION
Hull of hand-laid solid GRP bonded to a structural
grid/hull liner of directional fiberglass/GRP for a
strong, stiff, light composite. Vinylester hull barrier
coat to resist osmotic blistering and zone-specific
stitchmat laminates for specific increased strength
optimization.
Cored GRP sandwich construction for stiffness, thermal
and acoustic insulation and lighter weight. Solid
fiberglass reinforcements in high load areas. Integral
unidirectional GRP deck beams for added strength.
Main bulkheads bonded 360° to the hull and deck for
rigid torsional and compressive strength.
