Not for speed, but surely takes abuse! I have had my Frenzy for 14 yrs it's been in lakes, rivers, bay, ocean and any amount of water i can get her in. She isn't to clean and her bottom gets dragged. Very stable have never flipped and never got a hole like a different brand that a friend sank in! If ever she would have to be replaced maybe it would just be a different color. not for racing but i always feel very safe when boats send large wake at me.
