The "extra strong" Akes 23 model has
been designed as an
entirely customized version of the Akes 23 original boat.
This hull has been reproduced in - no less than - 6 mm
thick 5083 Aluminium. The same material of 8 mm thickness has been used for
of the internal frame and the transom has been built in
25 mm plate.
The bottom of the boat can bear a stress three times as
high as the one caused by the design loads provided by the CE regulations;
the transom bears a stress 10 times as high. So it has been easy to rig the
boat with massive 2x225 HP for 50 knots .
