As a boat material, aluminium excels in every important category…
An all-welded aluminium boat weighs 1/2 to 2/3 the weight of a well “laid-up” fibreglass boat.
Less weight means greater performance, better fuel efficiency and easier trailering.
You can do things with a quality aluminium boat that you would never dream of doing with a fibreglass boat: dock it against your favourite ledge, repeatedly beach it hard on shore, plunk your anchor into the cockpit. Unlike brittle fibreglass, aluminium can take repeated abuse given the forgiving and yielding nature of this metal. Bang it, bounce or bump it into rocks, quay’s, beaches and even other boats and your aluminium boat will withstand it,
The two most dangerous hazards in boating are sinking and fire. Our boats are both unsinkable and fireproof. If you have ever seen a fibreglass hull bum to the waterline, you already know the safety advantages of an aluminium boat.
A naval architect once said the hardest thing to design into a boat is usable deck space,
Our hulls are only 3/16″ thick allowing us to easily exceed fibreglass boats when it comes to usable space inside the boat. Fibreglass boats commonly lose up to 6″ or more of deck space over the entire length of the boat due to their thick sides.
