I'm rather familiar with Russian engineering. Definitely impressive stuff. So it depends upon what you want the hull to do. The problem with cored structures is they can be real light weight and stiff, but when they break, it's not pretty. Stronger is a vague term. I personally prefer steel for hulls. Long list of reasons. But certainly recognize the amazing qualities of composites. As long as they are sound, wouldn't turn most of them down..Just search for images of Russian engineering Some impressive stuff, but it doesn't all make sense.
The ultimate hull is a cored, carbon (or even better, boron) fiber unidirectional layup. Use an aramid fiber (Nomex) honeycomb core for best results. It will be MUCH stronger than aluminum, titanium or steel and WAY lighter. Heck, even cored fiberglass panels can be stronger (and WAY lighter) than monolithic steel or titanium panels. Honestly, composites are just better for boat hulls. Maybe steel is still better for ice breakers.
I think I'm in loveTalking about Carbon in boat design, in 2017 Bob Perry was commissioned to build 4 identical carbon fiber boats.
