Wakeboard Boats: V-drive boats with a wakboard towing tower designed specifically for wakeboarding. Equipped with wake control to provide various wave patterns for the wake boarder to jump from side to side.

Functional Description:

Wakeboard specific boats are usually v-drive boats with an inboard engine primarily in the middle of the boat.  Most wakeboard boats will have several features that help to create large wakes.  The quality and size of the wake is largely a function of the hull design and ballast weight of the boat.  Other devices such as a wedges and plates are used to create different shapes of wake.  Wakeboard boats will also have a wakeboard tower to provide the optimal tow rope angle to lift the wake boarder.

Wakeboard boats are manufactured from various building materials.  Fibreglass with a gel coat finish is the most common.  Other composite building materials for wakeboard boats are kevlar, dynel, carbon fiber and epoxy.

Fibreglass or glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), also known as glass fibre-reinforced plastic (GFRP), is a fiber reinforced polymer made of a plastic matrix reinforced by fine fibres made of glass.  Fibreglass is lightweight, strong material.  Most fibreglass boats are currently made in an open mold, with fibreglass and resin applied by hand.  Fiberglass is also referred to a as fiberglass, fibre glass or fiber glass.

Kevlar was developed by DuPont and is a registered trademark.  Kevlar can be used as a composite material in wakeboard boats due to its high strength-to-weight ratio (5 times stronger than steel on a weight basis).

Dynel is a trade name for a type of synthetic fiber used in fibre reinforced plastic composite materials that can be used in the manufacture of wakeboard boats.  It is highly abrasion resistance with good tensile strength) and is flame resistance.

Carbon fibre-reinforced polymer or carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP or CRP), is a strong, and light composite material that can be used to manufacture wakeboard boats.  Similar to fibreglass, this composite material is commonly referred to by the name of its reinforcing fibres (carbon fibre).  Carbon Fibre is also referred to a as carbon fiber.

Polyethylene is a cheaper and heavier material used for synthetic wakeboard boat construction with the benefit of superior abrasion resistance.

Epoxy or polyepoxide is a thermosetting polymer formed from reaction of an epoxide "resin" with polyamine "hardener" that can be used in the manufacture of wakeboard boats.

Gelcoat is used to provide a high-quality finish on the visible surface of a wakeboard boat typically 0.5mm - 0.8mm in thickness.  The most common gelcoats are based on epoxy chemistry.  Gelcoat is usually coloured to provide a coloured, glossy surface on the exposed areas of a wakeboard boat.  Gelcoat is also referred to as gel coat.
