When it comes to building sea worthy ships, using high quality materials is of the utmost importance. Using durable marine grade metals are used to withstand the wear and tear of the seawater that dominates over 70% of the Earth’s surface. The most common metals used in shipbuilding are Steel, Nickel, Copper, Titanium, and Brass. These metals have high resistance to corrosion from saltwater while also having the strength to take the brutal force of open waters.
