Quite simply, we choose to use only top-end products, partners and techniques to deliver high-quality, expertly crafted powerboats to our clients.
Starting with a great foundation is key. That’s why we develop Danalevi Powerboats’ hull, deck and small parts plugs with our partners using a CNC machine process. The plugs are created on a CMS Poseidon 5-axis machine optimized for durability, reliability and precision. Tolerances with this process are very tight, certified to an overall volumetric tolerance of 0.1 mm or .004”. The completed plugs are sanded using an 800-grit method for a mirror smooth finish. This time consuming method translates into a better final surface from plug to mold to shell.
Danalevi Powerboats’ hulls and decks are constructed of fiberglass-resin composite using a vacuum-infusion process (VIP) – in lieu of the more popular hand-layup. The VIP process is ideal for producing Furina’s complex profile. This process produces a higher fiberglass-to-resin ratio for improved strength, with minimal-to-no voids in the finished laminate. Additionally, because the vacuum removes air, excess resin and volatiles, a stronger bond is produced between layers. There is also excellent control and consistency in wall thickness, from part to part and boat to boat. What’s more, the vacuum-infusion environment is cleaner, with very low VOC air pollution.
Danalevi uses Ashland Maxguard™ gelcoats for minimal shrinkage, unsurpassed weathering/UV resistance and excellent yellowing and blistering resistance.
Volvo Penta’s next generation engines use modern technology and advanced design to power Danalevi’s powerboats. Volvo engines provide improved acceleration, impressive mid-range response, reduced fuel consumption, reduced emissions and smooth operation. All Volvo Penta products – propellers, drives, engines, controls, instruments, accessories, etc. – are developed for perfect interaction and optimal performance. This means you have one single contact for service and support.
Danalevi Powerboats are completely assembled in-house in our 14,000 square foot facility by detail-oriented experienced craftsman. Throughout the build, parts and processes are reviewed by principal Ross Hartman to ensure quality assembly to component integrity.
As a client of Danalevi, you will appreciate the beauty of Furina, as well as her fine craftsmanship and high quality components – for years to come.
