More About Our Small Aluminium Boats for Sale

All our boats are built entirely in-house, right from the cutting of the materials to the painting and upholstering. We ensure top-quality finishes on all our boats so that our customers get the best we have to offer. As we’ve expanded as a company, we’ve not compromised on quality.

  • Aluminium hulls: Our hulls use 8mm 5083 marine-grade plates with full-depth intercoastal frames and girders. Our non-developable, warped aluminium hulls have a variable dead rise, creating a stable and smooth vessel on the waves.
  • Top designs: Our vessels are designed by qualified naval architects using the latest maritime architecture and engineering software. Much research goes into all our designs to ensure they outperform and outlast our competition.
  • Certification: All the materials we use are explicitly chosen to fulfil their function. We only use European-sourced aluminium plates that meet B.V., D.N.V., or Lloyds certification. You can rest assured that purchasing a Makaira Boat is a sound investment.
