The Insetta i45c is built to offshore racing specifications, giving it a stout hull form. Each and every molded part is created using a vacuum-infused process. Insetta combines vinyl-ester resin and a closed-cell PVC foam core to create a structurally sound boat with an excellent strength-to-weight ratio.

When combined with the twin-hull design, the boat performs well at high speeds in rough seas, while remaining structurally quiet.
