A new boat series for professionals

The material used in our boats is HMWPE, High Molecular Weight Polyethylene, which is a durable polymer. The abrasion resistance of this material is superior and is suited for rough use and also for oil spill recovery.

The sea keeping characteristics of our boats resemble the characteristics of the RIB boat. The boat interior is spacious thanks to D-shaped fender. Unlike the RIB boat, the pontoons of the RBB (Rigid Buoyancy Boat) boat never loosen up or flatten, making the boat safe and resilient.

Our HMW boats represent a new sort of thinking in professional boats. Serving as an alternative for RHIB and aluminium boats – the HMWPE boat has an economic lifetime up to 20 years. This is made possible due to our polymer material which provides for better durability of the hull compared to GRP or aluminium. The polyethene polymer pontoons are more durable than inflatable rubber tubes and can be filled with flotation material for superior safety. The HMWPE D-fenders never need to be refilled or pumped with air.

In comparison to aluminium, the resistance of HMWPE to chemical substances is higher. The material offers great durability in many other areas – for instance running the boat ashore. Our HMWPE boats are welded from water cut sheets with double seaming, making the hull extremely strong. The material is 100% recyclable and there are no harmful gas emissions during the welding process.

The layout of our standard boats can be tailored and optimized to almost any clients needs. Tailoring has a minimal effect on the price since our boats are always hand made.

Also we are happy to design completely new vehicles for different purposes, ex. plastic waste collectors.
