Why People Are Choosing Polycraft

Polycraft boats have been manufactured for over 20 years, and are still in service all around Australia, proving the benefits of polyethylene as a boat-building material. This demonstrates the longevity and low maintenance attributes of Polycraft boats in varied applications by recreational and commercial users.

Ask anyone who owns a Polycraft boat, and they will emphasize the boat’s soft ride, trouble-free boating, and durability characteristics. The boats do what we say they will do. No showbiz or fancy marketing, just Aussie-made boats for everyday Aussie boating.

We believe in providing a quality product that performs well, and is easy to maintain at an affordable price point. There is a Polycraft model that will suit your needs. Just add water for instant fun and adventures.

STABILITY – The unique hull design features pronounced reverse chines, which contribute to unmatched stability at rest. The reverse chines also promote lift when accelerating onto the plane and allow for tighter cornering at high speed.

SOFT RIDE – Polycraft boats feature a unique, soft ride. They flex to absorb the impact of the sea, just like the shock absorbers on your car absorb and deflect the jarring from potholes in the road.

QUIET RIDE – Polycraft’s dual wall hull absorbs both engine noise and the noise of the sea. This results in a quieter ride and a more enjoyable day on the water. If fishing is your passion, you may benefit from quietly approaching your favourite fishing spot.

FLOTATION – Polyethylene has natural buoyancy, and will float unaided when placed in water.
The unique dual wall construction traps air in the cavity between the dual walls and helps contribute to buoyancy.

STRENGTH – Polyethylene has been shown in independent tests to have five times the impact resistance of fibreglass. This makes Polycraft one of the strongest boats on the market providing trouble- free boating for many years.

LOW MAINTENANCE – Polyethylene is very easy
to maintain, clean and repair. In addition, it is less susceptible to marine growth than many other materials.

NO CORROSION, NO ELECTROLYSIS – Polyethylene is an inert material that is not affected by electrolysis that may be found in aluminium boats, or by osmosis that can affect fibreglass boats. In the harsh marine environment, a Polycraft will keep looking good for longer.

UV STABILIZED – Polycraft boats are manufactured from UV-stabilised marine-grade polyethylene designed for extended use in direct sunlight. The colour is part of the material so your boat should retain the original colour and will never need painting.

DUAL SKIN HULL – The unique dual wall hull is manufactured in one piece. There are no seams, welds or joins, so the hull is extremely strong and durable.

4-YEAR HULL WARRANTY – If used for recreational purposes, Polycraft offers a four-year manufacturer’s warranty. A one-year warranty applies for commercial use (see warranty statement for full T&Cs).

AUSTRALIAN-OWNED AND MANUFACTURED – Polycraft boats are manufactured in Bundaberg QLD, Australia and are Quality Management System Certified.
