Elio construction

ELIO is considered a true innovator and is recognised as of the leading European manufacturers.

Innovation is not only applied to a new boat model or to a new accessory but to the entire production.

New techniques and strategies; new ways of working; or a new composite combination, creating more advanced constructions; are a few examples of innovation, always with the aim of making your boat stiffest, stable and comfortable, with never forgetting high-level performance.

Our products are all hand made by experienced and skilled workers, mostly former athletes of the sport. They are divided in teams and through the different stages of ELIO production.

The first step of our production is the mould.

This is built using high quality gelcoat and resin with a variety of fibres combined. The goal is to extend the use, keeping the shape and quality of the products.

Painting and laminating are the following stages.

This one is when we set different fibres (carbon, kevlar, etc.) on the mould to create shape and give strength to the product. Then it dries and we remove it from the mould.

It’s ready now for the finishing stage.


Fibreglass sandwich with an epoxy vacuum system. Produced in one piece only inside.


Carbon/PVC/Fiberglass around the cockpit. Fibreglass/Spheretex sandwich.
Produced in one piece only inside in Epoxy vacuum system.


Carbon/Glassfiber/PVC. Produced in one piece only inside in Epoxy vacuum system.


Carbon & Kevlar and/or Kevlar with Epoxy. Produced in one piece only in Epoxy vacuum system.


Honeycomb/PVC/Carbon and/or Carbon & Kevlar and/or Kevlar with an epoxy vacuum system.


SPRINT SPECIAL CARBON. Carbon/PVC/Carbon. Produced in one piece only in Epoxy vacuum system.


Match high structural strength with a great lightness. Thanks to the vacuum system the resin excess is eliminated making the product really light.


Kevlar is the name given by DuPont and it’s a type of highly resistant and lightweight synthetic fiber. It became famous by its use in bulletproof vests and its applications are varied.


Carbon fibre is used on yachts, paddle boats, kayaks and canoes, as well as oars and paddles. Its use has allowed boat builders producing light and very resistant vessels. The carbon, together with other fibres, replaces more traditional materials such as laminated wood or fibreglass in many types of applications.


The composite material is produced essentially from agglomerating very fine flexible glass filaments with polyester resin (or other resin). The resulting material is generally highly durable, has excellent mechanical properties and low density and it can be used to produce with a variety of shapes and sizes.
