Carbon composite toughness proven in extreme trials
Your vessel faces long hours of the sea’s punishment on a daily basis. We knew our carbon fibre composites were tough enough to take this punishment, but we wanted to find out just how much they could take. So we conducted several trials that subjected our vessels to extreme conditions. The evidence is clear: the carbon composite sandwich is the most robust construction technique available.
Trial by ice
To see how well our carbon composites could withstand both extreme temperatures and blunt impacts, we sent our vessel out among heavy ice drifts. The composite hull proved itself resilient and unfazed.
Trial by waves
We also tested the composite’s ability to take a pounding in high speed trials where we pushed the vessel hard on choppy seas. At speeds that would be unsafe for an aluminium vessel, the hull remained intact and undamaged.
Trial by dynamite
In the ultimate test of toughness, we subjected our composite sandwich hull to a hefty dynamite blast. The vessel made it through with flying colours.
