~The more you know about Bullet boats, the greater insight you
will have into our unique advantages: lightweight strength,
rugged durability, and high performance.
The methodology used in the construction of Bullet boats is
termed "hand lay-up," more specifically, hand lay-up utilizing
"sandwich core" construction. By applying material by hand,
large continuous layers of glass fabrics can be utilized for a
distinct advantage in construction. Precise calculations can
then determine which glass material at what exact weight
should be placed in specific areas of the boat.
The same principle holds true for resin applica tions. Precise
application of resins --just enough to saturate the strands--
eliminates weakness and brittleness in composites due to
excessive resin. Too much resin adds unnecessary weight to
the boat and at the same time reduces its strength.
In addition to the preliminary glass laminates, a layer of end-
grain balsa wood is added. Different thicknesses of balsa core
are used, according to what testing and engineering have
indicated is necessary for that area's particular stress and
load. The balsa core is then covered with additional layers of
glass fabrics. This type of composite provides enormous
structural strength and rigidity, yet keeps overall weight very
Along with the glass fabrics used in composites, Kevlar fabrics
are also used. The Kevlar reduces weight while significantly
increasing strength. High-performance marine resins that are
vinyl ester-based are the primary resins utilized at Bullet,
because they too greatly enhance the strength of the boat's
An extended mold time allows a thorough curing for all boat
parts. The curing process ensures a flawless cosmetic finish
and results in a precise hull surface which enhances handling
Nothing is left out of a Bullet boat in order to reduce weight.
Quite the opposite, state-of-the-art materials, utilizing the
painstaking production process of 100% hand lay-ups, are
added to the Bullet boat.
At Bullet, we understand what our customers are looking for
in a tournament-worthy performance boat: speed, handling,
strength, durability, fuel efficiency, and a great fishing
A Bullet boat delivers it all.
