Kevlar/Glass Hybrid used in New Reflex Spyder

14 May 2008

Just launched, the new Reflex 850 Spyder by Reflex Advanced Marine Corp (RAM) is a modular, centre console craft which uses the company’s patented “tri-hull technology.

The single skin flexing planing surface hull is resin infused using Kevlar/glass hybrid fabrics and vinylester resin. This provides a high strength, low weight composite structure. The centre hull extends aft to supply structural and buoyancy support to the stern platform and the dual outboards.

This novel hull design has proven fuel effecency and provides high speeds with lower than normal horsepower. Other features include shallow draft, high stability and a low wake and wash signature.
