Alignment, balance and weight distribution are the elements where the Apache Team mainly focuses its efforts to build hulls that create fast vibration-free boats in all sea conditions.
These decades-duration hulls are made of Kevlar and carbon fiber and have a quality unmatched by any other high performance deep V hull on the market today.
Apache Powerboats refurbished half of the boats built in the 1980s and early 1990s not because the hulls were in poor condition, on the contrary, the new owners were interested in revamping the boats’ appearance and upgrading to their own taste the graphics of the hull.
This is another particular feature of these hulls which all have unique and innovative hand painted graphics which are simply stunning made according to the owners’ directives.
