The Williams Composites Story

Williams ‘By Design’ – Composites Explained

Mark Colbourne, the concert manager at Williams Jet Tenders, details their manufacturing process.

It begins with CNC cutting and proceeds through various coating stages, infusion, bonding, trimming, and finishing.

Mark Colbourne, composite manager, notes a trend towards darker colors in recent years. This trend poses challenges in finishing but also offers opportunities for innovation.

British Built Williams Jet Tenders prioritizes sustainability by incorporating recycled materials like P cores made from soft drink bottles.

They also explore future resin systems for fully recyclable boats. I hope they succeed.

Ofcourse there is already Danu™ that is being used and is fully recyclable. It is done by Ultimate Boats.
