Two thirds of the earths surface is covered by water - Our carbon fibre power catamarans can safely cover all of it
Eight suspected pirates in a typical wooden skiff far offshore near shipping routes are about to be checked for weapons, which they usually dump overboard when they see a war ship coming at them. Too many men to be fishermen and probably no fish, bait, or fishing gear onboard!
20m x 9m Multi-Mission
High Speed Pocket Patrol Boat
Personal Escort Vessel
For Escorting HIGH PROFILE TARGETS
such as Cruise Ships and Oil Rigs under tow
Carbon fibre construction and innovative design features provide optimal high speed offshore performance and outstanding littoral capabilities.
Five times stronger than steel andhalf the weight of aluminiumwon't rust crack or corrode
50% to 75% lower fuel burn than a similar size aluminium or steel vessel due to much lower weight
Double the working life and less maintenance than a similar size aluminium catamaran or mono-hull
Dual Carbon Fibre Foil Assistlifts you higher, keeps you dryer, less resistance, faster, smoother ride
Foam insulation, double glazed windows and air-conditioned provide quiet comfortable work environment
Designed and built under survey to DNV high speed offshore passenger Rules
'Designed in' water tight void areasand foam sandwich construction make these catamarans.........
boats don’t get any safer than this

Hulls & Stability
The 9m beam and a centre of buoyancy in each hull provide excellent lateral stability practically eliminating rolling.
Long fine vertical bows pierce thru seas rather than pitch up.
Four down angled carbon fibre bow fins below the water line resist pitching moments.
A carbon fibre Hydro Foil between the hulls provides dynamic lift reducing the wetted surface of the hull reducing drag and improving performance. The foil also provides vertical motion damping and a smoother ride.
Two electric/hydraulic transom trim tabs trim the vessel for each sea state.
Four moulded carbon fibre bilge keels per hull provide directional stability and decreases the draft giving it outstanding shallow water ability.
Light-weight super strong carbon fibre and Kevlar foam sandwich construction.
The Epoxy resin vacuum infused closed mould construction method used ensures that no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are released into the work place or into the atmosphere. This is the laminating method for the hull platform, the decks and superstructure and for all other molded and flat panel parts.
