The hull was built of R 41 corrosion-resistant steel above the waterline. This has resulted in virtually no rust anywhere on the vessel. The hull was substantially overbuilt (approx. 25% in excess of Lloyds requirements) to meet the owners strict guidleines to survive anywhere under any conditions. Even with three compartments filled with water the vessel is designed to maintain full longitudal integrity. The key operational areas of the machinery and controls have a double skin hull as to be able to withstand an armed attack. All areas of the vessel have been continuously maintaned to Lloyds class requirements by mostly the same crew who built the vessel in 1983.
