Carbon fiber is widely known for being light, strong and stiff. Depending on the structure and its requirements, weight savings of over 50% can be achieved when compared to traditional materials. In this case, this reduces the pitching moment of the yacht substantially.
In general, fibre reinforced plastics outperform metals (e.g. steel and aluminium) in strength.
