The Tinn-Silver boats up to 6 metres are built with 4 mm seawater-resistant aluminium while the types from 6 metres upwards are built with 5 mm seawater-resistant aluminium. And there are reasons for this. Aluminium is a special metal and is valued for several reasons:
Aluminium has a long lifespan and retains its shape. It is not affected by UV radiation or moisture and cannot rust, rot or warp. Aluminium boats retain their value much longer than boats built with another material. This ensures an optimal price-quality ratio.
For many people, the maintenance of their boat is an annoying but necessary side effect. If you want to take good care of your boat and enjoy it for a long time, good and regular maintenance is important. That is precisely one of the most important advantages of an aluminium boat: it is virtually maintenance-free. Do you need to paint? No, not necessary. Besides a lot of work, it also saves a lot of money. Aluminium gives good resistance to corrosion, a protective oxide layer forms naturally.
It may surprise you because aluminium is a type of iron, but an aluminium boat is relatively light. That makes an aluminium boat not only manoeuvrable in the water, but it also makes aluminium boats easy to trailer and therefore easy to transport. With the same dimensions, an aluminium boat has more speed and uses less fuel with the same propulsion power.
STRONG AND SAFE
Unlike other common boat building materials such as polyester and wood, aluminium is not flammable. In that respect, an aluminium boat is also a safe boat. Aluminium is also very solid and robust, which means that your boat can certainly take a beating... Aluminium can withstand powerful deformations that cause steel or polyester to crack, whereas aluminium only bends.
SPECIAL AND SPORTY APPEARANCE
There is no accounting for taste. Not every boat lover is equally charmed by aluminium. But with an aluminium boat you buy a boat with a special look. An aluminium boat is certainly not a boat with which you sail unnoticed on the waters and you can often take that as a compliment.
Sustainability and environmental awareness are becoming increasingly important. Aluminium is 100% recyclable and therefore the most sustainable material for boat building. A solid, shape-retaining and durable boat: you don't want to miss that boat, do you?
