The shipyard in Solin combines traditional Croatian shipbuilding design with application of modern technics and materials. All the construction’s key elements are produced according to the highest standards of the compositional shipbuilding, beside the significant role of the manual production which is of particular importance in the process of manual laminar production and which gives the sailers’ hulls Salona particular strength and safety. The inox mount, which is integrated in the hull of the ship, absorbs all loads of the keel and the steel ropes. Thus it becomes the key element of the ship’s strength.
