Carbon Fibre in Marine

There was a time, more recently, when Kevlar was touted as the be-all and end-all for composite boat construction. Today, the magic words are carbon fiber.

Carbon fiber has long been the construction material of choice in the aerospace and military industries, before becoming the norm in high level yacht and auto racing.

Carbonfiber technology decreases weight and increases stiffness in boats and accessories.

AFI can build any object in carbon fiber — whether a boat, car or airplane — it is lighter and you’ll get more speed and better fuel efficiency.

Boats

Carbon fiber is stronger than fiberglass, so it adds extra strength to the equation, which is why the driver of the first McLaren carbon-fiber Formula One race car walked away from a major crash when the car’s surrounding “tub” saved him.

A material that is stronger also allows builders to use less of it to achieve the original strength, and once again, lighter is faster and more efficient.

Strength is obviously desirable, especially when it comes with the bonuses of lightness and stiffness. All these features are valuable assets when building a boat and make carbon fiber the new buzzword

Speed...

Why carbon fiber? This is a three-word answer: lighter, stronger, stiffer. These are the qualities that have endeared carbon fiber to the aerospace, automotive and military industries.  

If you build a boat that is lighter with equal strength, you’ll spend less time at the gas dock and more time fishing or doing whatever it is you like to do while boating.

You can build an object in carbon fiber — whether a boat, car or airplane — that is lighter than a similar object in fiberglass, you’ll get more speed and better fuel efficiency.

Carbon fiber has a strength-to-weight ratio about twice that of the S-glass used in most boats.

That translates into the same strength at half the weight of fiberglass, or twice the strength at the same weight.
