Why aluminum? The short answer is it is the best material to build boats with. The longer answer is that over the past two decades we have come to know the material inside and out. We know its strengths and its weaknesses. And the more we worked with it, the more we came to love its characteristics, its versatility and, not unimportant, its recyclability. Yesterday’s coffee capsule is tomorrow’s sail boat.
We have learned from our customer’s feedback, and have kept improving. Today, our customers come to Makkum from as far as Chile and Australia and our yachts can be found sailing literally from pole to pole. Which gives us the confidence that we are on the right track with aluminium.
