Egrets are constructed like no other boats on the water. From their unique design, their top-of-the-line materials, and their solid construction, Egrets are simply the best skiffs available.
The hull of an Egret is offered in two materials:
- The first is a high-quality fiberglass, supplied by one of the industry’s leading manufacturers and applied with a 50/50 resin mix, which no other boat builder can claim.
- The second material is carbon kevlar, the same material used to make airplane wings and bulletproof vests. Carbon kevlar is lighter by about 120-150 pounds, stronger, and safer, offering a much better impact resistance over fiberglass. And, not to put too fine a point on it, it looks fantastic.
Every Egret is designed from the beginning to be as light and stable as possible. The goal is to build the boats so that you can cut out any part of an Egret, throw it in the water, and it would float. You can put a hole in the bottom of an Egret and it would still float.
Another important factor is the sandwich construction of the boats, which features a layer of fiberglass, a layer of high-density foam to create thickness, then another layer of fiberglass. Every boat is built primarily out of just three molds—a hull, a liner, and a deck—with only 3/16s of an inch tolerance between them. Finally, they’re glued together so they become a solid body. This means that Egrets run through the water like one solid piece, not a collection of parts.
