For the purpose of more safety boats, the large thickness of outer plates is required to increase flexural stiffness, strength and impact properties. Some problems in mechanical properties are generated by increasing in thickness because the effect of interlaminar shearing of Thick-composites on whole mechanical properties is greater than that of thin-composites. We have investigated the matrix hybrid composite with two kinds of unsaturated polyester, one was hard type resin with low toughness and the other was flexible type resin with low modulus and high toughness. In this study, matrix hybrid composite was focused and applied to Thick-composites. First, the flexural properties were investigated and the micro fracture progress was precisely observed with in-situ observation using replica method. Then, impact properties of the Thick-composites were examined and the availability of matrix hybrid composite was investigated. It was concluded that the matrix hybrid composite achieved high performance in both static and impact load.
