The ship's hull is made of monolithic fiberglass and shaped by vacuum infusion, a modern construction method which results in a lighter hull with a longer service life.
According to the shipyard's representatives the first ship's hull was shaped within one and one-half days, making it a world record.
On 7 June 2016 a fire occurred on a second ship, Georgiy Kurbatov, while it was under construction. According to shipyard officials, the fire would not delay the construction time, however, the launch date was later postponed.
On 9 June 2017, the Russian Russian Ministry of Defense announced that it increased the number of ships to be produced from 20 to 40, and that the first two ships would be delivered in 2018. Russian Navy Deputy Commander Vice-Admiral Viktor Bursuk added that the Srdne-Nevskiy Shipyard in Saint Petersburg would produce two ships per year. A total of 11 vessels has so far been ordered.
