Best Answer

Boat hulls are commonly made from wood, steel, aluminum or fiberglass. The choice of material is dependant on hull design, intended use, production facilities available and, to a lesser extent, cost.


In ancient times (and to this day in certain places), boats were made from bundles or reeds tied tightly together. Check out the boats used at Lake Titicaca or on the Nile delta.

Now if you are asking for hull shapes or types, that's a different question. See other QA in this catergory, or use wikepedia for a detailed (and complicated) answer.
