THE BENTLEY HULL or CHASSIS

Your Foundation for Quality, Comfort, Performance and Handling.

1

Tube Diameter and Thickness

25” diameter tubes are constructed from .080 thick aluminum sheet.

2

Lifting Strakes or Performance Lifting Strakes

.100 thick aluminum lifting strakes are optional. The lifting strakes are strategically placed on the tube and hydrodynamically designed and engineered to create “lift” which helps to reduce drag, increase speed and maneuverability.

 

3

Aluminum Underskin

.063 thick aluminum sheet is fastened, using marine grade stainless steel rivets, to the underside of the decking/cross members. This underskin helps to reduce turbulence, noise, spray and increase speed.

 

4

Cross Member Risers

It is important for all chassis to flex, but remains solid and intact. For this reason, the Bentley chassis uses multi length “M” bracket risers, strategically placed and welded to the tube, for added strength.

 

5

Beam

Every Bentley chassis features a 8’6” beam. This is the maximum width allowed for towing a boat without a special permit.

6

Fuel Tanks

All Bentley fuel tanks are roto molded for maximum quality and fitment. They are mounted in the motor pod and are diurnal EPA certified.

7

Decking

3/4”- 7-Ply marine grade plywood is used for the decking material.

 

8

Transom and Motor Mount

All models have an all welded, aluminum transom, which utilizes .190 aluminum sheet in the motor pod area for maximum strength. * excluding LE models

 

9

Keel

All tubes feature a 5/8” full length, solid keel.

10

Cross Members

.190 thick aluminum extruded “hat” channel cross members are used in the stern and .125 aluminum extruded elsewhere.

 

11

Wiring and Harnesses

Deutsch – style electrical connectors are used to ensure quality.

 

12

Rub Rail

All boats come standard with a rubber insert engineered into the skirting.

13

Tube Baffles with Drain Holes

Each joint of the tube has a baffle for added strength, but also creates a chamber for added flotation. The baffle has a drain hole for servicability.

 

14

Chassis Nuts, Bolts and Fasteners

100% of all nuts, bolts and fasteners on the chassis are stainless steel.

 

15

Nose Cones with Splash Fins

All nose cones have a proprietary keel for added strength and rigidity.
