Moggaro Aluminium Yachts technical staff has extensive experience in the shipping industry. The fact bet on aluminum naval construction is based on a number of advantages:

  • Increased resistance: it is clear that aluminum is more resistant than fiber. This results in fewer breakdowns (no osmosis problems or cracking), and therefore lower running costs. A collision with a rock or iron low in fiber would mean a total loss and very expensive repair and uncertain. Aluminum, because of its high ductility, it is one of the metals less fracture, and makes no cracking problems. Always tend to deform, not to crack.
  • Más ligero y por tanto menos consumo: El aluminio es más ligero que la fibra, siendo la diferencia mayor a medida que aumenta el tamaño de la embarcación. Esto supone un menor consumo de combustible, que se puede cuantificar en un ahorro del 25% en consumos de combustible. Por otro lado, al pesar menos la embarcación, se puede navegar a mayor velocidad con menor esfuerzo y desgaste, y por ello los motores rinden más y son más duraderos.


  • Lighter and therefore less consumption: Aluminum is lighter than the fiber, the difference being greater with increasing the size of the boat. This means less fuel consumption, which can be quantified on a 25% saving in fuel consumption. On the other hand, the boat is lighter so the boatl can sail faster with less effort and wear, and therefore the engines perform better and are more durable.



  • Lower cost of repair: repair of aluminum is very simple, similar to the plates of the cars. A bun in the hull can be repaired in just a few hours, cutting and welding a new plate, returning the vessel to its original state with complete assurance of hull strength. In fiber helmets, blow the phenomenon known as cracking complex, and requires partial and very costly repairs that do not guarantee the original strength.


  • Increased residual value: aluminum will not deteriorate with constant exposure to sunlight. Nor suffers from osmosis, and better resists the algae and barnacles fouling when the boat has long inactive. Trailering fissuring affects to fiberglass, but not aluminum. This assumes that after years, aluminum boats maintain their initial conditions, or what is the same, are newer than fiberglass. And so, the resale value is higher, and depreciation, less.


Did you know that...

  • The quality of aluminium welding is very high, much more than the fiberglass construction process.

    Aluminum welding do not depends in such difficult to control factors such as ambient temperature, or cleaning and suspended dust, as with the construction of fibers and resins.

  • The aluminum construction ensures maximum quality throughout the process: reception of materials, which are already certified and classified (aluminum sheet, wire, gas), and new electronic welding machine, allow the finished product has high reliability.

  • Aluminum is 100% recyclable material, so it is 100% organic. The residue generated with aluminum construction is not toxic, and is also recyclable. Not happens the samewith the fiber and resins, highly toxic and very negative environmental impact.
