Marine Plywood: Buy Plywood for Boat Construction Projects

Marine plywood is special grade plywood this is typically made from Douglas Fir or Western Larch. This plywood is made from at least B grade wood that may have knots, but does not have knotholes. Marine plywood is glued together using a waterproof structural adhesive. It is ideal for boat and dock construction projects.

What is Marine Plywood

Marine plywood is a special type of plywood that is designed for use in boat construction projects. It can also be used for other outdoor construction applications as well. Marine plywood is manufactured from durable face and core veneers that have very few defects. Therefore, it performs well in humid and wet conditions and resists de-laminating and fungal attack. Marine plywood is designed to be used in environments where it will be exposed to moisture for long periods of time.

Some common applications for marine plywood include:

  • In small and large boat construction or repair projects
  • As the sub-floor of a home
  • As the sheathing of a utility shed’s walls
  • For the construction of piers, docks, and boat houses

Advantages of Marine Plywood

Marine plywood is a necessity for many boat construction projects as well as other types of construction projects for buildings and structures that will be found in wet or damp areas. Both small and large boats benefit from the use of marine plywood as it can result in a more durable and reliable boat. This can help better protect the boat and prevent future problems that may be caused by the use of inferior plywoods.

The main advantages of using marine plywood for boat construction include:

  • Improved protection as marine plywood can hold up even if exposed directly to water due to small scratches in the resin or glass that protects the plywood
  • A great increase in the resale value of your boat
  • A stronger material that is free of voids and offers consistent mechanical properties
  • A nicer material that is easier to work with than other plywood types
