Swift Racing Boats

Swift use a range of materials to offer 4 "grades" of boat. Each grade is finished to the same high standard, but has a different price point to match a variety of customer requirements, needs and environments.

All Swift boats share these features;
  • "Sandwich" composite construction (ie. a core material such as Nomex Honeycomb, Lantor Coremat, or PVC foam is sandwiched between 2 "skins" of Carbon, Kevlar or Fibreglass).
  • Use epoxy resin, cured at high temperature.
  • Bonded under vacuum.
  • 100% full Carbon shoulders
  • Enclosed seat decks for maximum buoyancy (exceeding FISA's requirement).
