The layup you have described contains no epoxy at all.
I don't think even a good marketing department can stretch the truth, for the optional epoxy option, that far
Epoxy is indeed an elastic word. And it is legally impeccable the way Hanse uses it. People actually think Hanse build epoxy boats but they use one layer of an epoxy based vinylester only which is no epoxy.

Re: Polyester versus Vinylester

All the Hanse epoxy boats have an "e" in their number. I think the link you supplied was to one of their polyester boats.

They used to offer most models with the e option and it appears from a quick look at their web site that they now only offer their largest yacht with this feature.
This is a link to specifications of one of their e boats. The details of the hull construction are not extensive (why do yacht manufactures burry such vital, and fundamental information on how the yacht is constructed?), but they do say
Epoxy resin infused closed cell sandwich core construction

Thanks for the information Noelex. Yes, there is this (hardly sold) super expensive option. When Hanse came out with the announcement "we build epoxy boats" it started sticking in people's minds and most believe Hanse boats were generally made of epoxy. I consider this a nice strategy.
