Tiburon's Patented* "One of a Kind" Hull Design
Tiburon's Patent Pending hull design was derived by adapting the same aerospace principles that are used in developing fighter jets. Designed on the most advanced Computer Aided Design software available, the hull design was computer-optimized before the hull was even machined. Digital design and manufacturing results in an extremely efficient hull design that reduces drag, provides lift and literally feels like it glides on the water. Tight tolerances translate into a lightweight, strong design unlike anything on the market. We have seen over 6 MPG with a 200 Hp engine!
The propeller and skeg run completely above the planing surface. The unique hull design allows the engine to be trimmed even higher than shown in the picture without losing water pressure or bite.
Many boat manufacturing companies copy hull designs from existing hulls and then modify them slightly for rebranding. Not Tiburon. All Tiburons are designed from the ground up. NOTHING is copied. There is nothing like it on the market...and there is nothing that can compete with it on the water!
I'm another title
Tiburons do not allow the propeller to touch the sea grass resulting in greatly reducing unsightly and harmful seagrass scars. The pictures on the left and middle were taken in 3-6 inches after repeated runs. Pictures like the one on the right are a thing of the past!
Tiburon Boats is a truly custom boat company. Utilizing CAD and CAM software, Tiburon Boats can quickly react to customer and market drivers. For example, our new "stand on top" console went from concept to completion in two weeks.
Tiburon Utilizes State of the Art Design and Manufacturing
Quality is not something that is checked for after a boat is completed...at Tiburon Quality is designed into every Tiburon Boat. By utilizing state of the art design and manufacturing tools, all Tiburon Boats exceed the industry in fit and finish. Master Patterns (Plugs) are machined to 1/1000 inch tolerance resulting in highly effiecient hulls that reduces friction and improves performance. No other boat company can match Tiburon in its design to manufacturing processes. No other boat can match Tiburon in its performance and fishablity1
For decades, mankind has been putting machines into the sky and into space. Because of the life-threatening aspects of that proposition, huge investments have gone into the design techniques and materials to build aerostructures. But the marine vessel industry has changed very little. In particular, the recreational boating industry is rife with copies and re-dos. Many manufacturers will literally take an existing boat hull, modify it slightly, make a mold from it and give it a new manufacturer's name. Not at Tiburon. We leveraged the best that aerospace design and technology has to offer for the marine industry. We utilized their same CAD technology to design this boat from its hull to its deck and console. We were able to send that digital information to a CNC machine to make a precision-cut plug and mold. The result is a boat with tight tolerances and a crisp fit and finish.
NOT YOUR FATHER'S BOAT...
When it comes to boat manufacturing, little has changed as well. Boats from the 1950's had very similar construction techniques and materials as many boats still manufactured today. Boat owners had to learn the hard way that wood rots, chrome coatings deteriorate and heavy materials can make a boat too heavy to use in shallow water. At Tiburon, we use space-age composites and polymers to give our boats both extreme strength and durability while also keeping it very lightweight. Incorporating this state-of-the-art technology with tried-and-true boat building practices makes for a dependable, strong and extra-capable vessel. Tiburon has manufacturing facilities in Texas and Florida. Combining years of traditional boat building experience with cutting edge design and manufacturing practices, Tiburon brings the best of best of both worlds to its customers in the form of a best in class high performance flats boat.
