Premium material, strong structure, and quality construction are three foundations in building a boat with real strength. To reach this ultimate goal, Morningstar boats adopts a revolutionary simple but strong hull structure, premium 5083 aluminum alloy, advanced forming technology and robot welding during construction.
Revolutionary Hull Structure
Different from conventional pressed or plate alloy boats, Morningstar boats are constructed with much fewer parts by adopting 3D formed single-plate bottoms, single-plate sides incorporating gunwales, and our patented Origrid stiffener system. Fewer parts means less welding and fewer weak links in the structure. Deduction is the code in reengineering Morningstar's hull structure, but there is one exception, the forefoot. The forefoot is the part that usually encounters the most impact. Morningstar boats have a double-plated forefoot. A 4mm-thick 5083 alloy formed forefoot shield is fully welded over the 3mm single-plate bottom. The 4mm shield acts not only like a bumper but also an extra structure reinforcing strength at the bow.
3D Forming Technology and Robot Welding during Construction
3D forming techniques are applied to the production of the hull plates. The forming of non-developable surfaces stretches the hull slightly in multiple directions and dramatically increases its strength. At the same time, 3D geometric shapes, such as curved surfaces, strakes, and steps, are built into the plates. These shapes are not only for style or hydrodynamic purposes, but also to increase the strength of the hardened plates further. Robots are used in most of the Morningstar boats welding jobs. The precise and consistent welding works ensure every Morningstar boat reaches its design quality.
