Boat Construction

Below is a description of the various levels of constructions Nelo manufactures.  Please note that not all boats are available in all constructions. The available constructions for each boat is shown on the boat's product page.

(P)   Polyethene   Built-in polyethene material, with 50% recycled plastic
(A1)   Fiberglass Polyester   This is the basic construction that is thought to be an economic option for touring and learning boats.
(F)   Carbon Foam Epoxy Vacuum Heat Cured   One of the most popular constructions, it’s defined by being extremely resistant and rigid, ideal for sprint training and competition.



  Carbon/Kevlar Epoxy Vacuum   This construction is designed for river descents, marathon training, and sea competition. His main features are: stiffness and impact resistance.
(G)   Extra Carbon Foam Epoxy Vacuum Heat Cure   High-quality construction, prepared for high performance.
(E)   Carbon/Kevlar Vacuum Heat Cured   Was specifically developed for marathon events, it stands out for the balance between its lightness and stiffness. These features gives it an excellent performance in competition.



  Solid Composite System   Construction with an excellent performance level because of it’s extreme stiffness. Those features are possible because of the high-technology that we use in the moulding of composites. Ideal for high-competition. This construction also stands out for the extras, such as, weights and cover for the boat, and also the possibility of customizing the painting (not included in the price of the boat).
