Advantages of using aluminium for building boats

Aliboats hulls are built out of marine grade aluminium alloy 1.6mm to 20mm thick (depending on the use of the hull) to give a lightweight, durable boat with a very high load capacity on relatively low horse power and fuel consumption. Aluminium is the chosen material because of the increased usable space in the boat relative to other materials.

A well designed 'Ali' hull has almost double the useful space of a comparable size fibre glass boat. In addition aluminium will not corrode in salt water or be affected by extreme temperatures and harsh sunlight. It will not degrade like fibre glass or other materials used for boats.

Aluminium tends to dent and deform on impact – retaining water tight integrity – as opposed to shattering and breaking as with other materials. Sharp objects like rocks will puncture aluminium but this is normally easy to repair in the field with silicone, pop rivets and a plate of galvanized iron or similar.

Aluminium boats do not try to compete with the looks of fibre glass hulls, but offer better all round value, with longer life, more usable space, better layout options, slower fuel consumption per load, higher re-sale value and better warranty.

Boats built by Aliboats 25 years ago are still smart working boats today.
