Prestol’s composite system incorporates the most innovative resins in the industry along with the highest quality carbon fibre and other composite materials. All Prestol boats are manufactured employing vacuum infusion technology and a post-heating process to achieve high performance, stiffness and durability. This process takes place in a closed environment, which limits direct contact with the resin system increasing the safety for both the environment and worker.
