In a world driven by operating costs we are always looking at how we can provide more but cost us less to build and operate. Bigger and better 'bang for your buck'! Our naval Architect has designed this multi purpose vessel as a Z bow to achieve a fine water line entry, maximise water line length and at the same time optimise sea keeping capabilities. His unique design has provided an ideal vessel capable of carrying 50+ passengers whilst being skippered by a Coxswain.
How Does This Work?
Clever design has this Z-Bow with an overall length of 14.17 metres with a waterline length of 12.13 metres but the kicker is she acutally has a surveyed length of 11.97 metres, allowing for her to be skippered by a Coxswain! So, you have actually have a 14 mtr vessel whereby your operating cost are kept low with an affordadable Coxswain to skipper and at the same time maximising your carrying capacity whilst maintaining high speed without compromising safety.
Very clever Commercial Boat Design which you can now take advantage of.

Offering loading from front (beach if you like) stern and both sides, makes her ideal for all applications. With power by your choice of two or four outboards, this vessel can achieve a loaded cruise of more than 30knots, maximising your outlay for the most efficient result. There is plenty of storage forward for passenger baggage or equipment, a single toilet (can easily provide two toilets if required)
