At Marine Frontiers, we pride ourselves in being the first and the largest manufacturers of Aluminium vessels in India. Aluminium, as defined by SOLAS ( Safety Of Life At Sea) standards, is non-flammable and non-combustible. Because of this, aluminium vessels can be made to comply with new, stricter I.M.O ( International Maritime Organization) commercial boat rules that are nevertheless appropriate for all oceangoing vessels.

Aluminium combines light weight, high strength, easy workability / pliability, and affordable cost in one package. A comparison between vessels made of deferent material demonstrates the benefits that Aluminium offers :

MATERIAL CHARACTERISTIC STEEL G.R.P ALUMINIUM
WEIGHT 60% heavier than Aluminium Heavier than Aluminium and absorbs water well Lightest
SPEEDS(keeping HP constant) Lower than Aluminium Lowest Highest
ENERGY EFFICIENCY Lower than Aluminium Lowest Highest
FUEL CONSUMPTION More than Aluminium Highest Least
STRENGTH(Interlaminar) Good Strength Low inter-laminar strength Strongest and most resilient
MAINTENANCE Constant maintenance due to corrosion Frequent maintenance Nil
RESISTANCE TO IMPACT Good Poor Highest


A proper weld in Aluminium is at least as strong as the metal it joins, so an aluminium yacht, including frames, stringers, gussets, bulkheads, deck, and all the other endless pieces, becomes essentially a one-piece structure. Being the most exible of alloys, aluminium yachts can be.
