My team and I have taken over Aquaflyte and are hand building them in South Devon. The boats are made by people highly experienced in manufacturing with composite materials. We are encouraging customers to have an input into the design of their new boat and they can also come to our premises and have a hand in building their own hull. The boats are category B rated. Aquaflyte are currently offering 6 - 9 metre boats.

We expect to launch a newly designed commercial specification cabin RIB in the new year.

not as expensive as you might think
tubes have been raised in the bows and slightly tapered hence the reason it looks different from original aquaflytes

Hi Nick

Thank you.

The website is new and is still being added to. It only went live on friday - lots of work to do yet.

We have produced quite a few boats so far this year two of which were support boats for Spindrift France - quite a nice project.
