We use marine grade aluminium plate BS5083 or BS5251 for all hull skins. External surface protection is not required as a hard oxide film forms on the surface quickly and becomes the hulls long term protection, meaning there is no requirement for additional protection such as painting.
If however you do require painting, we will happily advise as there are some excellent paint schemes available on the market.
In 2019 Thanetcraft celebrated its 70th year of building aluminium boats. When Thanetcraft first started, aluminium alloy was virtually unknown as a boat building material.
M Hall associates Ltd. have full manufacturing facilities available to produce standard or
bespoke aluminium boats, able to withstand heavy and continual usage on boating lakes, within commercial fisheries and for general working purposes.
