Category Description

As a rule, yachts with aluminum hulls are built through an individual project. Many ocean cruisers choose aluminum for its strength and lightness. A yacht made of quality metal will last forever and will require less repair and maintenance than a hull made of other material.

When it comes to long around-the-world cruises or sailing in areas with difficult weather conditions, such as the northern latitudes with ice conditions, a yacht with an aluminum hull has every chance of being the optimal solution. Unlike steel yachts, which are also very reliable, aluminum boats can also be quite fast and even win prestigious races as has been the case many times in history. Building an aluminum yacht, all things being equal, is more expensive than a steel yacht but less time-consuming. It is also important to note aluminum’s corrosion resistance when in contact with water, including saltwater, is high.

On the other hand, while building such yachts, it is necessary to be mindful of aluminum’s contact corrosion with other metals such as zinc or steel. Rigging and sailing wardrobe for aluminum yachts are selected and optimized according to one’s plans for the use of the yacht and ordered from specialized manufacturers.
