Our mother corporation, United Plastic Fabricating (UPF), developed the leading Poly Tank and Poly Body water tanks for the manufacturers of firetrucks. Hence, our desire to innovate inspired us to design more solutions across new industries (such as poly custom hulls for houseboats and floating homes). Providing houseboat builders with the highest value houseboat hulls available is our commitment.

Poly houseboat hulls are durable, flexible, and rust-proof, saving you money over the long haul. Because biological hazards and barnacles do not easily attach to plastic, routine maintenance will be greatly reduced. Moreover, it is nearly impossible to puncture a hull comprised of poly.

Utilizing the decades of experience and expertise of UPF, Custom Plastic Fabrications, LLC will continue to manufacture the highest quality products while still being cost-effective. Our priority is ensuring that all our custom fabricated products perfectly match your specific design/build requirements. Below you will find many reasons why you should consider using poly instead of steel, concrete, fiberglass, or aluminum on your hull.

CPF Poly Houseboat Hull Benefits

Biological Hazards and Barnacles Do Not Easily Attach to Plastic

Iron and fiberglass suffer from the biological hazards and barnacles that attach to their surfaces. Conversely, this is not an issue you will face with a poly hull. In case you want to motorize your floating home, you won't have to worry about the extra drag that these particles add to houseboat hulls. The extra drag reduces fuel efficiency and speed. Additionally, if your hull is covered with barnacles, your houseboat will produce more CO2 emissions.

Plastic is 100% Rustproof

Hulls made of steel or iron will rust over time. Hurricanes, collisions with the docks, air moisture, and prolonged contact with saltwater are the main reasons that contribute to the damage and long-term erosion of aluminum or steel hulls. By using a polypropylene hull, you will never have to worry about any rust on your houseboat hull. We guarantee that your own poly custom hulls made by CPF will not rust, increasing both the lifespan and resale value of your houseboat or bungalow.

Adds Value to Your Floating Homes (for Resale)

Should the day come when you’re ready to upgrade your houseboat, you will realize a much larger resale price for your vessel due to our poly hulls. You will be able to point out the myriad of benefits that the long-lasting, dent-resistant, rust-proof houseboat hull will also afford the next owner.

Poly Houseboat Hulls are Easier to Clean

Cleaning is much easier since rust, biological hazards, and barnacles are not an issue for your poly custom hull. Because barnacles do not attach well to the surface, it is very easy to clean your boat hull. To clean your hull thoroughly, you can use a flat plastic piece or a pressure washer.

Poly Houseboat Hulls Are Not Prone to Denting

Poly custom hulls are tough. Flexibility allows them able to bend or deform without breaking. As a result, custom houseboat hulls made out of poly are more durable. Conversely, aluminum hulls are softer and prone to denting and cracking. Additionally, scratches and dings aren't an issue for hulls made out of polypropylene plastic.

This application includes bulkheads

The bulkheads provide watertight compartments to limit the amount of water that could breach the houseboat hull. Also, they offer the ability to provide ballast. Thus, providing the proper level of flotation to make the watercraft stable and level. Additionally, they could be used to store both gray and freshwater.

Saves Time and Money on Maintenance on Your Floating Homes

Without rust, biological hazards, and barnacles, you will save money and time on maintenance. Also, the cleaning process for your poly custom hull will far easier. And last (but not least), you won’t have to worry about collisions with docks (or ice) damaging your floating homes.

CPF Reclaims Material

Following our environmental responsibilities, we reclaim cut material in our factories and weld together to form additional sheets for more work. Thus, significantly reducing unnecessary waste. In addition, the scrap material is reground with the supplier and recycled for future use.

More Friendly to the Environment

CPF engages in a wide range of green initiatives that demonstrate our commitment to doing business in an environmentally responsible manner. In this regard, we are adhered to help reduce carbon emissions, preserve wooded areas and biodiversity, and keep our air and water clean. Learn more about our Green and Lean Initiatives.
