Our Range of Aluminium Kit Boats for you to build

Why an Aluminium plate boat?

There are 5 key reasons we think you might want an all Australian - hand made plate Alu boat over a production built boat. 

  1. Customisation - customise the boat to your needs,
  2. Good Value -  we think you get more boat for your money.
  3. Strength - are typically stronger using 3, 4, 5 & 6mm 5083 Aluminium plate.
  4. Functional - designed to be functional for you, not for the mass market.
  5. Survey - boats can easily be placed into Survey.

The range of kit boats available far exceeds the range of production boats; i.e. sizes, variations, barges etc.
