Innovative Hot Air Welding Technology

Navigator Boat’s unique welding process techniques allow us to join sectional seams and longitudinal ones. It significantly expands the possibilities of our designers while creating new models and allows a higher degree of optimization of vessel shapes and an increase in navigability and safety of the boat. Additionally, this technology makes the seams elastic and solid, making the structure of your dinghy almost stable when fully inflated!

Welded PVC Fabric Seams

Inflatable Boats are assembled from high-quality Valmex/Plastel boat PVC from Mehler technologies with a density of 750-1000g / m2, ensuring their long-term operation without additional maintenance of the welded seams, unlike glued PVC fabric boats. Our manufacturing unit has unique hot air welding machines built especially for our needs.

It is amongst the first in the inflatable boat industry to master and apply the technology of welding the inter-tube partition into the cylinder body. Also, it is meant to reduce the number of external ring seams located from the dinghy’s stern to its bow. This innovative process allowed us to decrease water resistance upon entry of the dinghy into the gliding mode and increase structural reliability overall.

The Navigator’s innovative welding technique sets them apart from other manufacturers. With German PVC at its core, you can be sure that your inflatable boat will last a lifetime.
