Aluminium hulled yachts:
Builders use marine-grade aluminium to build a hull when the yacht needs to high structural rigidity and to save weight at the same time. More often than not fast displacement and planing mega yachts have aluminium welded hulls. Usually, a yacht with aluminium hull will have less weight than both steel and fibreglass boat of the same length. Last years have seen the arrival of fast Mangusta Gransport 45 and 54 with their hulls made of aluminium, while Dutch superyacht builder Heesen is building aluminium boats for many years. Largest superyacht in Pershing model line-up, Pershing 140 is built entirely in aluminium too.
