BUILT TO PERFORM
At Ultimate Boats, our design philosophy starts with a clear vision for the future of safe and powerful boats - boats that are created with the user experience in mind. From the first sketch to reality, we strive to make each boat better through thorough testing and analysis, constantly improving upon its usability and ease of interaction.
Our Foam D-Collar, High Gunwail Wall, and Self-Draining Deck are just a few of the features that set us apart. As a company based in Scotland, we are proud to be at the forefront of premium craftsmanship and innovative boat design. In addition to delivering exceptional performance, we are also dedicated to making our boats more sustainable and our manufacturing methods more intelligent. Our goal is to provide the ultimate boating experience, with the safety and power to tackle any adventure on the water.
Introducing the Moxham Hull: A Revolutionary Design for High-Performance Powerboats
Crafted by renowned designer John Moxham, our hulls embody a legacy of innovation and excellence. From his design work for the Special Boat Service to the creation of the fastest lifeboat in the RNLI, the E-CLASS (Mark 1), and his involvement in the development of the iconic supersonic Hawker Siddeley Gnat fighter, John Moxham has established himself as a visionary in the field of design.
Our patented Moxham Hull represents a quantum leap in hull technology, drawing upon dynamic principles from the XB70 Valkyrie high-altitude bomber to deliver unparalleled hydrodynamic performance. The "golden ratio" and passive hydrodynamic performance modification system ensure that each craft is intelligently designed for its specific purpose, with improved water flow beneath the craft generating hydraulic lift and enhancing propeller grip for superior manoeuvrability.
This revolutionary design allows the helm to effortlessly maintain a constant visual on the horizon with linear transitions onto the plane and reduced stern squat and bow lift. The 25-degree deadrise ensures that the Moxham Hull slices through rough waters with minimal slamming and launching, delivering exceptional handling, seakeeping, and directional stability.
MEET THE DESIGNER
UNMATCHED DIRECTIONAL STABILITY AND EFFORTLESS HANDLING
Our patented hull technology elevates the standards of powerboat design and engineering. Designed to conquer rough offshore seas, it boasts a sleek attack angle and a 25-degree deadrise that effortlessly slices through choppy waters without any excessive slamming. The innovative water flow management increases grip for superior manoeuvrability and tighter turns without sacrificing speed. The helm will always have a clear and steady view of the horizon, thanks to the hull's linear transition onto the plane, which eliminates stern squat and bow lift. Experience the ultimate in comfort, no matter the weather, with our boats delivering unparalleled handling, exceptional seaworthiness, and rock-solid directional stability.
Craftsmanship Meets Sustainability with DANU. At Ultimate Boats, we understand the importance of durability and eco-friendliness. That's why we use DANU, a patented super-strong composite material created by our parent company, ExoTechnologies. This innovative alternative to glass reinforced plastic (GRP) combats the growing problem of disposable boats and their impact on the environment. With an estimated 250 million kilos of GRP being dumped in Europe each year, we're proud to offer a solution.
DANU is made of styrene-free resin and sustainable fibers, offering exceptional strength and versatility. Not only is it stronger and lighter than fiberglass, but it's also less brittle than carbon fiber and costs the same to produce. The material can be recovered, recycled, and reused multiple times without losing any of its tensile strength, making it a smart choice for both performance and sustainability. The manufacturing process of DANU is familiar to the industry and uses the same vacuum infusion method as other boat-building materials, eliminating additional costs for our customers.
FOR STRENGTH AND DURABILITY
Regarding composites, Resin infusion or Vacuum Infusion is a process where the voids of an evacuated stack of porous material are filled with a liquid resin. When the resin solidifies, the solid resin matrix binds the assembly of materials into a unified rigid composite.
What makes Infusion superior to other forms of resin applications is:
The Layup is done with dry-fibre so tailoring and ply layout is not constrained by resin gel time. (So you can make it look nice!)
No autoclave or oven needed for curing.
High quality laminates with low void content.
Clean, worker-friendly layup process, you only mix resin once and don’t get it on you.
Consistent part-to-part quality and repeatable weight.
Ability to laminate Hull, Deck, Wheel House and potentially stringers and other structures in one shot.
Production-friendly for moderate volumes.
Easy to control and train others once you have a system.
