Best Performance in Aluminum boats

Aluminum boats perform better than fiberglass

Fiberglass is 50% heavier than aluminum, so you get better performance from a smaller engine

Aluminum boats offer a number of advantages:

  • Plane faster and stay on plane at slower speeds
  • Provide better fuel efficiency and easier trailering
  • Offer unsurpassed handling and performance
  • Require less maintenance than fiberglass
  • Can be beached on a rocky shore without chipping or cracking the hull
  • Are more durable, which is why they manufacture airplanes and semi-trucks from aluminum

Stronger Aluminum AlloyBuilt using a stronger aluminum alloy : 5052-H36

Why do we use the toughest aluminum ?

  • We insist on H36 throughout our boats because we won’t compromise on durability
  • H36 is 25% harder than other aluminum alloys used by some competitors
    • Provides uniform strength and a truer hull shape
    • Provides a better ride, more durability and lasting value

Hulls that perform better for a variety of reasons

  • Princecraft hulls are precision-tested for enhanced performance and safety
  • Our engineering has lead to some breakthroughs in hull design :
    • Wider bottoms for unmatched stability
    • Reverse chine hull design (most models) :
      • Provides lift so the boat gets on plane faster
      • Lift also provides less hull resistance in the water
    • Double-reverse chine hull design :
      • Adapts to the speed and load of the boat
      • The outer chine enhances performance at slower speeds or heavier loads
      • The inner chine enhances performance when the boat is running at higher speeds or with lighter loads
  • Performance-proven hulls offer better handling and control
  • Lightweight aluminum hulls that perform better are also more fuel efficient
  • Deeper-V hulls cut through the water better and offer a dry, comfortable ride

Quality Boat ErgonomicsPrincecraft State-of-the-art CAD Design and Engineering

  • Develop hulls and features for performance and styling
  • CAD and solid works 3D software ensures every specification is precise

Durable, High Quality Fishing BoatsTesting and Re-testing

  • Our history of innovation demonstrates our unyielding quest for better boats
  • Every hull is tank tested – from the largest to the smallest
  • Ensures water tightness
  • Prototypes are tested for performance and durability
  • Final adjustments are made to hulls and components

Optimum Boat DesignEvery Component Fits Better

High-tech CNC cutting equipment so cuts are extremely precise

  • Every component fits precisely, performs better and lasts longer
  • The biggest difference in assembly from model to model are the serial numbers

Structural Durability

The best combination of structural components for each boat size and usage

  • We maximize the structural strength of hulls with H36 aluminum transverse and longitudinal framings
  • We further reinforce hulls with :
    • H36 center keel from stern to mid ship
    • H36 brace-plate from mid-ship to bow

Best in Aluminum BoatsReinforcing at the Stress Points

  • Boats absorb most pounding at the bow
  • Princecraft twin-plates many hulls from bow to mid-ship
  • Go the extra step of double-plating at the chine where the hull is fastened to the hull sides
  • Transfers the stress from the bottom to the side panels
  • Prevents cracking of the side panels or bottom

Best Boating ExperienceProven fastening methods

  • Rivets are the most dependable fastening method
    ever invented
  • High-stress vehicles like airplanes are constructed with
    riveted seams
  • Princecraft boats, like airplanes, are engineered with riveted seams for decades of reliability
  • Princecraft double rivets where the hull bottom is joined to the sides and stern
  • All 18' boats and bigger are completely riveted with 1/4" solid-aluminum rivets—not just at wear point

Best Boats for FishingWider, more-stable bottoms

  • Princecraft has some of the widest bottoms in the industry for increased stability and fishability
  • Up to an 18-degree deadrise depending on size of the hull for much more comfort especially in big, rough water
  • Princecraft hulls offer unmatched handling and performance at a wider spectrum of speeds and loads

Best Boat ErgonomicsErgonomic interiors

  • Boats designed by fishermen for fishermen
  • Floor plan is built around how people fish
  • Helm stations with everything within easy reach
  • More room for rods, gear and buddies
  • Spacious casting platforms
  • Clean sight lines
