Cobia Boat Building Process Using VARIS

Cobia Boat Building Process Using VARIS

The VARIS Construction System is a technique that uses vacuum pressure to drive resin into a laminate. Materials are laid dry into the mold and the vacuum is applied before resin is introduced. VARIS stands for Vacuum Assisted Resin Fusion System. Cobia Boats has been using this system for 20 years and plans on vacuum infusing all new models starting December 2019. The first Cobia that was ever made using the VARIS method was the 320 in 2018. They have been migrating the other models ever since. Today the 280 CC, 280 DC, 301 CC, 320 CC, and the new 350 CC model are all vacuum infused. They have been the longest boat manufacturer to use this method which explains the VARIS system’s reliability. This attribute truly sets Cobia apart from the competition, making it the better boat build of its class.

The Process

The process controls the perfect amount of resin that ends up in the building structure. This is achieved by pre-determining the amount of resin through all the fiberglass laminates, the core materials, and the backing plate materials under a vacuum. But with VARIS, Cobia does something differently. They pull the resin through all the laminates, stringers, and transom simultaneously. This creates a single fused structure that is awfully strong and has the highest strength to weight ratio possible in fiberglass construction every time.

Benefits of the Vacuum Assisted Resin Fusion System

The process is environmentally and worker-friendly because it reduces resin waste
The process is lighter allowing the boat to be more fuel-efficient and faster
The process creates a more solid, stiffer boat construction allowing anglers to put more equipment on their boat
