Innovation in aluminium boat building is hardly new. In fact there are multiple companies using proprietary manufacturing processes to build aluminium craft that ride remarkably like fibreglass boats. It has traditionally been a difficult thing to do, but advances in technology have enabled companies like Quintrex to develop some very sweet riding boats.
