Recreational Vessels

Composites for Recreational Vessels

The exceptional performance of composite materials is available to builders of production recreational vessels who are looking to save time in the build process and weight in their finished products.  Our SAN, PET, and PVC core materials offer significant improvements over more traditional core products, while our prepreg and SPRINT™ materials can also be utilized to eliminate waste and provide faster build time.  Gurit provides technical and engineering support as well to ensure that the materials chosen are ideal for their intended use.

Product applications

High performance, proven light-weighting capability, cost effective products for recreational vessel applications.
