Our Biggest Project Yet

 

The  Year Was 2019 and we had a thought ?

 

Can You make ? A narrow boat out of HDPE  formation plastics we took that thought and made it a reality.

 

Building boats in HDPE is not a new concept in fact they have been building them for many years,

 

The majority of them are vessels from small dinghy’s to large see going vessels some with big twin outboard motors, even some small ferry vessels

 

They have the advantage of being able to run up on the beach over pebbles etc with very minimum wear and being very robust.

 

The material does not require any maintenance and nothing will stick to it,It is UV stabilized and virtually unbreakable

 

10 REASONS TO CHOOSE A HDPE BOAT

1. Super buoyancy – lighter then water

HDPE is a multi-talented material. Let’s start with its density: it can range from 930 to 970 kg/m3. That makes HDPE lighter than water. And that makes HDPE extremely buoyant, even when submerged.

2. Zero corrosion – zero maintenance

Oxygen, salt and water have no effect on HDPE. HDPE will not be affected by the ravages of time. Paint system: obsolete. Salt water: no need to rinse. Simply put: HDPE offers zero corrosion, zero maintenance.

3. Resistance to marine growth – no anti fouling needed

With an HDPE hull you will never have to deal with marine growth: it just doesn’t stick. So thanks to its continuous clean and smooth bottom the fast HDPE boat keeps its speed. Without anti-fouling,  So no toxic pollution, no environmental damaging.

4. Aggressive liquids? No harm done!

Working with chemical or fuels? Great news: HDPE can hardly be affected by any aggressive liquids.

5. High impact resistance – not afraid of sharp rocks

RIB tubes are quickly damaged when bumping into a sharp rock or rampart. Not HDPE. Its viscous and elastic characteristics prevent from both deformation of cracks. HDPE is both tough and flexible thanks to its elastic properties A strong HDPE hull is perfect if you work close to the shore.

6. Black strength: UV resistancy

HDPE because of its UV resistancy. Black HDPE is mixed with carbon, which prevents the material to become brittle due to exposure of the sun in tropical conditions.

7. Production flexibility

Our HDPE boats are constructed by plate welding, giving great flexibility in creating a boat shaped exactly to your needs. This includes the installation of additional components like benches and storage compartments. Need adjustments in lay-out? Easy as pie with HDPE.

8. Easy of repair

What if you need to repair something on your HDPE boat? Mind you, this is a big IF, because these situations rarely occur with HDPE. We just get that question a lot. The answer is simple: we can do it for you.

9. Low carbon footprint

The carbon footprint of HDPE production is 5 times lower than aluminium! And that’s only one aspect when it comes to durability. Another: an HDPE boat is indestructible, so will stay with you for 10, 20, 30, 40 years.

10. Durability: 100% recyclable

GRP boats have a limited lifespan and are impossible to recycle. The same goes for aluminium: metal deterioration will send any aluminium boat to the scrapheap at one point. HDPE, however, is a different story. It can be 100% remelted and recycled in a new PE blend.
