Polycraft boats are made here in Australia of high-density polyethylene, constructed by a rotational moulding process which forms a twin-skin hull that has no seam. The cavity between the two skins is injected with foam to increase strength and add positive buoyancy to the hull.
The polyethylene hull is slightly flexible so it absorbs the impact of waves, giving a softer ride than an aluminium boat. This is a quiet running hull due to the density of the material, and when you add the low maintenance, lack of corrosion and electrolysis, you’ll see why we decided on Polycraft as our hire boats at Dundee Beach.
The hull shape is almost that of a tri-hull boat, with the main centre hull and two smaller side sponsons that replace the outer reverse chine. The hull tracks nicely in the water, with a tendency to offer greater stability at rest and on the move. Polycraft boats are very stable in both these situations and you could have the weight to one side without any worry of overbalancing or dipping too far.
As you bump across the chop you can feel the density and solid construction of the hull. There is no jarring, banging or rattling like a tinny. You can’t help but notice how quiet the ride of the hull is – particularly when you have a motor like the awesome new 175hp Honda four-stroke on the back. Both boat and motor are very quiet.
