Mainly for training purposes, although with only a small weight disadvantage over honeycomb boats, can still be highly competitive.
Hull: Lantor coremat core with kevlar skins, and carbon reinforcing.
Saxboards and canvas decks: Honeycomb core with carbon and kevlar skins, and carbon reinforcing.
Seat deck: High density closed cell PVC foam core with kevlar skins.
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 our lowest cost boats (Club A and Club B) use honeycomb cores on the canvas decks and saxboards, and PVC for the seat deck and keel in order to provide additional stiffness and minimize the overall weight.
We use 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.
