WARRANTY CONDITIONS

Dual SkinAll Polycraft boats are manufactured from marine grade, UV stabilised Polyethylene.

The hull has a unique seamless dual skin, with each skin having a thickness of approximate upto 10mm. This makes Polycraft boats not only exceptionally strong but the design also displays flexible characteristics providing a very soft ride on the water.

Polycraft boats excel in choppy conditions, absorbing wave impacts between the dual layer hulls. The subsequent lack of noise is a real bonus when fishing, especially when trolling or stalking the shallows with an electric motor.

Furthermore, Polyethylene is not affected by electrolysis, a major concern in aluminium boats, or dry rot, which is the bane of many fibreglass boats.
