That essential quality...
APEX® boats reflect the commitment to quality which is an essential ingredient in the conception and manufacture of our designs.
As we insist on the highest quality, naturally we choose Dupont's Hypalon® for all of our boats.
This unique, reinforced fabric used by all reputable manufacturers and requested in accordance with military, navy, and commercial specifications.
This unique fabric provides the best possible resistance to damage from ultraviolet rays, oil and gasoline spills as well as from life's other little knocks - and our easy clean finish makes life easier too!
The overall exterior lengths of inflatable boats are measured from tip to tip. Almost all manufacturers build boats with a long cone at the rear. This is a cheap method of finishing off the stern of the boat. However, this cone adds to the overall length without increasing buoyancy and the usable interior space of the boat and therefore can give a false impression of the usable capacity of the boat.
APEX® boats are constructed with rounded ends and therefore have a shorter exterior length than their major competitors. We build our boats with rounded ends despite the additional cost because we want our tough rubbing strake to extend around and protect the stern of the boat. This shorter length helps for storage on davit or dinghy racks while the usable interior space is actually larger. When choosing a boat, look at the interior space of the models you are comparing.
