Two thirds of the earths surface is covered by water - Our carbon fibre power catamarans can safely cover all of it
Large Navy Ships, fixed wing Aircraft and Helicopters to capture 8 pirates in a small wooden skiff far out at sea does not appear to be very cost effective. Our method would be to use a number of our inexpensive High Speed "Pocket Patrol Boats" continually patrolling the coast where they are known to be active to keep the pirates on the beaches and prevent them from reaching the shipping routes at sea
26m x 9m Multi-Mission
High Speed Pocket Patrol Boat
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.
