At Triton, we’re proud of the way our boats look, but we believe it’s what’s inside that really counts. Triton boats feature the most advanced design, materials, construction methods and safety engineering in the entire fishing boat industry. As you’ll see, we use aircraft technology in our hull construction – there’s no wood in a Triton boat. Our innovative engineering approach enables every Triton hull to carry a lifetime warranty, plus a three-year warranty on most Triton-installed components. And, most important of all, every Triton boat is designed and built with your complete safety in mind.
Most fiberglass fishing boats are built with wood in such strategic areas as the stringer system, transom, deck and floor. Over time, wood can rot, leading to structural failures. Even wood thoroughly encapsulated with fiberglass still contains water and can expand and contract over time, which may lead to delamination. It’s impossible to bond wood and fiberglass chemically. Also, wood softens when wet, causing fasteners to pull loose. For these and other reasons, there is no wood in a Triton boat. Instead, Triton insists on space age Tri-Core composite construction. Tri-Core, a high-tech, super-strong polyurethane core material used in high performance aircraft, can never rot, bonds chemically with fiberglass, and is unaffected by climate changes. In addition, structural tests show Tri-Core to be lighter than wood, yet stronger than most wood/fiberglass laminates.
As you’ve seen, Triton’s state-of-the-art materials and construction methods give our boats tremendous strength without excess weight. You benefit from faster acceleration, greater top-end speed, a soft, dry ride in rough water and increased fuel efficiency for both your outboard and your tow vehicle. Greater strength means a longer-lasting boat with the best warranty in the business. Extra flotation means greater safety for you, your family and your fishing partners.
