Aluminium Kit Boats

Aluminium Kit Boats

This is normally restricted to trailable boats and low end moored boats, as each boat design requires substantial preparation work by a (boatbuilder) supplier. It is relatively new into the boatbuilding market, and is available to both the amateur and professional builders. The latter are commonly on sites dispersed from the component supplier.

Individual plate parts are supplied in “full plate” form, cut out but held together by bridges. The parts are separated at site, and assembled to generate the framing, with shell plating wrapped around it. Progressively the components are tacked and welded together.

See Aluminium page for general information on this technique.
