Swift Racing Boats are manufactured in a modern, fully integrated factory, using proven materials and production processes. All boats are heat-cured under vacuum using epoxy resins for maximum structural integrity and stiffness. Even the lowest cost boats (Club A and Club B) use honeycomb cores on the canvas decks and sax boards, and PVC for the seat deck and keel in order to provide additional stiffness and minimize the overall weight. Swift uses different materials to offer 4 “grades” of boats. Each grade is finished to the same high standard, but has a different price point, and may be more suitable for certain situations and environments.
