AB inflatable tubes are constructed from a 5-ply Hypalon® fabric that is specifically manufactured to resist scratches and UV damage, while retaining its durability. This fabric is covered by a ten year limited warranty, the longest in the industry. AB seams are overlapped a full inch and reinforced by taping on the inside.
The rounded tube ends allow for extension of the rub rail around the tube to protect the stern, and their graceful lines are unmatched by other manufacturers. AB inflatable tubes boast a larger diameter that improves safety and seaworthiness, increases payload capabilities, and helps to ensure a dry, comfortable ride. Every AB tube features a minimum of three air chambers, divided by a special baffle system that equalizes the pressure in all chambers. This results in performance that is more balanced and stable.
Each AB model has tubes that are individually proportioned to compliment the hull dimensions. Precision design and craftsmanship means AB customers will always enjoy the greatest possible function and comfort.
All AB hulls are constructed from either double-molded, hand-laid fiberglass, or high quality, marine-grade aluminum. The unique forward hull design extends the hull further forward and increases the length of the keel, as well as the interior space. The elegant lines produced by this design are characteristic of all AB boats.
Our forward hull design creates a raised bow and deep "V" hull which enhance the performance of every AB model. The deep "V" hull allows AB boats to plane more easily with less horsepower, and cut through wakes and chop, virtually eliminating spray, for a smoother, more stable, and drier ride.
Inside the boat, this design extends our floors forward and creates a wider, longer bow. This results in a roomier, more comfortable craft with plenty of storage for gear and provisions. AB hulls are more costly to build, but the increased performance and comfort they provide are well worth it.
