OCQUETEAU is the renowned specialist in motor boat with hull made with vacuum infusion for durability, greater security and pleasure sailing, all in the respect of the environment.


Performance and durability: Only the vacuum infusion laminated enable a high-end result with hull both lighter, stiffer and more durable. That is why this technique is routinely used in the fields of space, aeronautics and competition.


Ecology: The vacuum infusion is also the only method for laminating in one pass of the composite sandwich. Also, the infusion is an environmentally friendly composite lamination process, the resins are cured under vacuum so with very low emission. Also, the IFH process allows relief on the lightweight of the ship and a 10 to 20% cut in consuption.


Cost: In 2000, OCQUETEAU developed the process IFH - Infused Fiberglass Hull - to significantly reduce the cost of the infusion, without losing any advantage, and thus put this advanced technology available to the leisure motor boat field. Ultimately, an IFH hull generates additional costs on the price of the boat about 15 to 20% quite acceptable if one takes into account a life doubled and all the benefits in safety,  performance, fuel economy and respect for the environment.
