New build fast Catamaran designed to take 4 x 300hp outboards and has a huge 5 metre beam makes her an excellent choice as a patrol boat, coastguard and police or customs vessel, Crew transfer and utility vessel. Can be driven by a coxswain is a dream to handle around other vessels with the latest technology solid foam collar (Samples are shown in the picture) Vessel can be built with our z-Bows or conventional bow (both are pictured)
The floodlit cockpits feature heavy duty sampson posts with quick release hooks for towing. A rope storage winch is has been cleverly placed in a dedicated under floor locker so as not impact on useful deck area. Other cockpit features include fold down seating, large (stretcher friendly) boarding doors to both sides and the option of a secondary helm location for use during short handed docking and towing operations.
The cabin has been kept as narrow as practical to allow safe recessed walkways down the sides of the vessel. These walkways extend up side stairs to foredeck which have been kept as open as possible with recessed anchor handling gear and a choice of 1m, 600mm or inset pilot boat style grab rails with life line tracks.
Like much of the boat’s details, the interior layout can be tailored to suit. Currently features Shoxs military grade helm and Nav chairs along with side coaming mounted jump seats which fold down to form a stretcher and a large removable chart/control table with fixed seating, dedicated radios, computer power sockets and dedicated plotter. The floors include clear space big enough for a standard stretcher (with tie down points) and the ceiling has CTMD standard full length grab rails, white and coloured LED lighting and a retractable black out screen around the helm and Nav station allowing safe operation when full light is needed in the rest of the cabin. Forward both vessels feature gear lockers, galley space, enclosed bathroom with hot and cold shower and bunk space for crew or rescued passengers.
These vessels feature outboard engines, again allowing operation by a coxswain but also allowing cost effective installation of dynamic positioning and joystick-based control systems and rapid replacement in the event of engine failure. Inboards options are of course available and depending on target speeds the vessels would work well with either water jets or heavy duty Konrad style stern legs. Either option would free up transom space for a large boarding platform, easier towing or perhaps carrying a small tender.
