BUILT FROM TUFF-PLATE – 15mm-thick Tuff-plate™ specifically engineered to withstand the harsh marine environment.
Unlike their aluminium counterparts, boats built from Tuff-plate™ will not corrode. An excellent boat-building material, Tuff-plate™ floats, resists harsh chemicals and marine growth, and has a carbon footprint approximately five times smaller than aluminium plate. The body of the Tuff 540 is filled with hundreds of so-called red cells—small, air-filled pockets that not only make the material shock and sound absorbant but also give it added buoyancy making the vessel robust, quiet and unsinkable, thus ensuring an extremely smooth, soft, and safe experience that aluminium built boats won’t give you as they pound through the water. And, after a hard day’s fishing, there’s no need to hose her down because Tuff-plate™ built boats are not affected by saltwater, fish guts, and any of the other harsh chemicals you’re likely to encounter at sea.
