The Old Town Charles River 163 is made from Royalex. Royalex is a multi-laminate material made up of ABS, ABS foam and crosslinked vinyl. It is lightweight, has excellent strength, high impact resistance, high abrasion resistance and has high structural memory. The advantages of using Royalex is that that it can be used to vary the density of the laminate in certain areas of the hull to either save weight or to strengthen areas. Royalex's unique molecular configuration means it can be returned to its normal shape with minimal hull distortion after it has taken an impact.
