or limited production working craft are often made in aluminium.
Particularly if they are designed to be fast, because of the relative
lightness of the material combined with it's ruggedness. Examples are
patrol boats, fast fishing boats and most fast ferries.
Large yachts are also frequently made in aluminium, because above about 100ft/30m it is rarely economically viable to invest in the mould needed to build them in fibreglass.
The major drawback of aluminium boats is that they can be vulnerable to corrosion, so the maintenance schedule needs to keep on top of this.
