All Kiwi-Kraft boats are positive buoyancy boats, making them virtually unsinkable, even when full of water and with a full contingent of passengers. This is achieved by a system of pontoons between the hull and the floor. Each of these pontoons contains up to nine sealed compartments, depending on the model (more than all other boats in this class) for extra tested and is tested to 5 PSI during construction.
Twin planing strakes, that run the full length of the hull, give superior lift leading to better planing and improved fuel consumption. The strakes also give the Kiwi-Kraft boats better grip and stability on the turns and in following seas.
