INTELLIGENTLY DESIGNED FOR ABSOLUTE PEACE OF MIND
Unlike most other boats on the market, we utilize proprietary SPI (Single Piece Infusion) Technology. Vinylester resin is chemically bonded in a close-mold vacuum infusion process that bonds the hull with composite structural beams, creating a single structural unit. The result is a stronger, safer and more efficient boat that's just plain better. By focusing intensely on safety, EdgeWater let's you focus on making the most of every moment on the water.
Our boats are used by serious sportsmen, active families and commercial clients who demand practical features, reliability and durability. That's why we strive to build the safest, most versatile boats imaginable. Our boats are great for fishing, diving, skiing, cruising and anything else you could possibly want to do on the water. Our Boats are ones that handle exceptionally well in a wide variety of sea conditions.
At the heart of our company is a philosophy that deeply thoughtful design and intelligent engineering will produce a uniquely superior product. A strongly held conviction that quality matters goes into our Boats. A belief that uncompromising standards for safety and durability can be incorporated into a boat that is well-suited to its purpose and yet, still elegantly styled.

By carefully focusing on the needs of our customers and drawing from a network of talent and expertise, EdgeWater delivers a high level of usability, technological advancement and overall boating enjoyment. Innovative and technologically advanced, EdgeWater’s Power Boats outperform every other boat in their class.
Critical to ensuring a safe, superior ride is building a Deep V Hull that is rigid and strong enough to stand up to the punishment of long offshore runs.
We know the seas can be unpredictable and every excursion onto the water has the potential of becoming uncomfortable. For these reasons EdgeWater has developed some of the most advanced Deep V Hull structural designs on the water.
Unsinkable safety - While not every EdgeWater will venture beyond the inlet, every model is designed to do just that.
Unsinkable Closed-Cell Foam Flotation
Our first priority is building the safest boats on the water. Below our decks, all structural components and spaces are filled with 100% composite closed-cell PVC foam for maximum buoyancy and level flotation to make them unsinkable. Every EdgeWater, from the smallest to the largest, is completely self-bailing and has exceeded all industry standards for Unsinkable boats.
Deep Secure Hulls and Gunwales
EdgeWater's deep-V hulls are designed to run safely in the most extreme offshore environments. Decks and cockpits are also deeper and feature oversized rails and handholds for the ultimate in Unsinkable security.
Super-Strong, Proprietary Structural Systems
EdgeWater has developed some of the most advanced structural designs on the water. Utilizing opposing right angle beams, the composite foam and fiberglass reinforced stringers are permanently bonded to the hull, deck and transom to create a super-strong, one-piece, Unsinkable boat that can endure even the most extreme stresses.
Cutting-Edge Construction Innovation
On our largest, unsinkable boats, where weight is critical for superior hull performance and fuel economy, Single Piece Infusion® achieves a strength-to-weight ratio significantly greater than on open-molded, polyester boats.* In SPI, our high-density foam grid is vinylester resin infused at the same time as the hull to create an incredibly strong, one-piece structure. *According to Owens Corning laboratory results.
Every component is carefully selected for long life, easy maintenance and uncompromising reliability. We feel that a high level of reliability is critical to safety on the water. That's why every EdgeWater is rigged with industrial-grade electrical and plumbing components and all hardware is of the highest-grade materials and over-sized for increased durability.
Performance that's Unmatched
Like any high-performance vehicle, the test of engineering excellence is in the ride, and on this point EdgeWater is unmatched.

Our composite, aluminum, steel and electrical suppliers also contribute their expertise to the process.
By including these resources in the early stages of development, we create new products faster and to a high degree of technological precision.
Hull Design & Performance
Like any high-performance vehicle, the test of engineering excellence is in the ride, and on this point EdgeWater is unmatched with its Hull Design and Performance. From our smallest tender to our biggest offshore center console, every EdgeWater rides on a uniquely innovative variable deadrise Hull Design and proprietary structural system for maximum performance and safety. Created by a team of the industry's most respected engineers, naval architects and marine designers, it reflects more than four decades of research, testing and refinement.
Variable Deadrise "Deep-V" Hull
With a sharp entry point, the deep-V Hull Design found on all EdgeWater boats has a high entry angle that delivers a sooth dry ride by displacing water away from the boat while a wide bow flair keeps it from rolling back into the boat. Our hulls also feature a higher degree of deadrise at the transom for added stability.
Large Reverse Chines
The large chines of the Hull Design on an EdgeWater deflect water down and under the hull, acting as two points on which it balances. These points provide a great deal of dynamic stability for a more solid ride while also increasing lift and reducing drag for a faster more efficient running hull.
Padded Running Surface
A clean, flattened keel area at the stern of the boat improves running at higher speeds by letting the boat sit back on the pad, providing a comfortable bow angle and not locking the boat into an undesirable, low running angle.
High Transom Angle
Through the incorporation of a higher transom angle, the engines can be tucked under the boat for getting up on plane quickly and by trimming the engines up, control the bow angle without depending solely on trim tabs.
The long sweeping lines of an EdgeWater make it pleasing to the eye, but they also serve a greater purpose. The style lines provide stiffness to the sides of the hull and act as secondary water deflectors, keeping water from running up the sides.
Higher Freeboard and Wider Beam
EdgeWater's benefit from and are typified by their higher profile on the water. A deep freeboard creates a safer cockpit while the wide beam creates a roomier and drier running boat. While not every EdgeWater will venture beyond the inlet, every model is designed to do just that.

Single Piece Infusion®
In SPI, vinylester resin is vacuum infused into our grid structures and the Deep V Hull laminate in one step. By infusing them together, the resin in the grid cures at the exact same time as the resin in the laminate, making the entire hull bond as one. This process achieves a strength-to-weight ratio greater than on open-molded, polyester boats.
These proprietary technologies produce self-bailing, Deep V Hull boats with levels of strength, durability and flotation that are unparalleled. EdgeWater's focus on technological advancement and modern construction techniques has placed us well ahead of our competitors and continues to drive our customers satisfaction and their enjoyment of our product.
