Quintrex Hulls

Quintrex's aluminium boats feature technology-driven hulls that leave competitors in the wake.

Our unique ability to stretch form aluminium allows us to create shapes only previously made in fibreglass, delivering the softest, driest riding aluminium boats on the market.


After years of research, Quintrex has released the Apex Hull design set to revolutionise the boating industry. From humble beginnings in 1945 Quintrex has remained the leader in aluminium boat research and development for over 70 years. True to its name, the Apex Hull offers the pinnacle of boating with years of research and development leading to superior performance on the water – You have never seen a boat quite like this before!

Harder, Better, Stronger

The Apex Hull not only provides ultimate on-water performance but are truly built tough to last with increased Hull strength created with 4mm bottom sheets and 3mm side sheets of pressed marine grade aluminium across the Frontier & Freestyler ranges. The 630 size models even receive a standard upgrade to 5mm.

Leading Design

The Apex Hull stands out as one on the most innovative and modern hull designs y ou will see on the water. The lines of the Apex Hull combined with the forked bow and sleek windscreen profile* provide a refreshing, modern look to aluminium boat design, one that has never been seen before that is for sure.

All About the Ride

The future of aluminium boating has changed forever as the Apex Hull delivers unbelievable on water performance created by a combination of these key factors: 

  • The flare is carried further aft to maintain continual contact with the water when on the plane creating an even, smooth ride.
  • The wider, sweeping chine design opens the front of the hull to allow the flaring to carry further forward up the stem line, consequently improving rough water performance. By widening the chine on the Apex Hull, Quintrex have achieved increased stability and grip when cornering.
  • The increased surface area at the bow of the Apex Hull provides much greater lift, ensuring a level attitude.

More Room – 20% Internal Volume Increase

  • The Apex Hull keeps giving with even more internal room making sure it is one of the most user-friendly hulls on the market.
  • The new RSD (Raised Side Decks) featured on selected Apex models is fully-welded and increases the overall internal volume of the boat by 20%. The new RSD also increases freeboard by 80mm, offering extra comfort, safety and fishability. Combine this with a compact side deck design which maximises internal width in the Apex Hull.
  • The overall footprint of the Apex Hull has increased by 5%; the forked bow creates room for a large bow seating area on Freestyler models and a large casting platform on Frontier models.

REDESIGNED FROM THE WATER UP

Created using advanced design software, virtual modelling and 2 new stretch forming dies, the result is an entirely new concave flare in side sheets and bottom sides for a smoother, drier ride and increased hull efficiency on all models.


MORE SPEED LESS POWER

Hull efficiency has been increased by fine tuning the delicate balance between convex and concave shapes. The result is lower planing speeds and improved top-end speed - The Blade Hull can perform better with lower horsepower!


CONVENTIONAL JUST WON'T CUT IT

The Blade Hull cuts through chopppy water and deflects spray with ease - thanks to our unique ability to stretch form aluminium into concave shapes. The variable deadrise of the Blade Hull and the curved side sheets of the Flared Bow make Quintrex boats the softest and driest riding boats on the market.


AN EVEN DRIER RIDE

The Blade Hull performs with a near zero nose high attitude for improved visibility at slower speeds - when getting onto, or coming off the plane.


CUTS LIKE A KNIFE

With a sharper, sleeker shape, increased deadrise and narrow 'shoulder', the new Blade hull cuts through choppy water faster and easier. Purpose built for the harsh and offshore conditions our larger models come up against.


A BOAT WITH LESS ATTITUDE

The Blade Hull releases spray further aft, reducing the possibility of wind buffeting it back into the boat. The side sheet flare has been expanded further mid-ships creating a larger spray catchment area.
