Two thirds of the earths surface is covered by water - Our carbon fibre power catamarans can safely cover all of it
HIJACKED! - a ship unfortunate enough to be boarded and hijacked by pirates - at anchor at the mercy of the pirates while they await payment of a ransom. This could take weeks, months or even years.
30m x 10.6m Multi-Mission
High Speed Pocket Patrol Boat
Carbon fibre and innovative design features provide optimal high speed offshore performance and outstanding littoral capabilities.
Five times stronger than steel half the weight of aluminiumwon't rust crack, sweat 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

Dual Foil Assist High Speed Pocket Patrol Boat - HSPPB30
With over 39,000 litres of usable fuel, a 45 knot speed and a range of over 3,000 nautical miles this 30m catamaran is a serious “Far Offshore Long Range” Pocket Patrol Boat.
It has the ability to carry out "search and rescue" missions, locate and intercept pirates, drug smugglers, polluters and illegal fishing trawlers.
This same Multi-Mission Pocket Patrol Boat has 'unheard of' Littoral capabilities for a boat of its size. Due to its carbon fibre bilge keels and water jets this 30m carbon fibre catamaran has a 1 metre draft (3’ 3”) allowing it to patrol in shallow bays and rivers.
It has the ability to nose up to a sandy beach and allow 8 fully armed marines in 4 (optional) diesel fueled side-by- side ATV’s to drive down the carbon fibre bow ramp and explore isolated areas that may be inaccessible from the land.
Optional diesel fueled side by side ATV
When pirates get away from the coast and into the shipping routes the cost of piracy prevention becomes very high.
It requires fixed wing aircraft to locate the pirate skiffs and ships and helicopters to intercept them.
Preventing the pirates from leaving the coast by constant patrolling of the known pirate 'hot spots' would be way less expensive and a far more productive way of bringing some kind of control to the situation.
The TMD range of High Speed Pocket Patrol Boats were designed specifically to carry out this mission.

The high under wing-deck and the dual carbon fibre foils can be seen in this 3D drawing. The foils raise the vessel up by two thirds of its draft to reduce hull drag and this makes an incredible improvement to performance and to the onboard comfort as the foils dampen vertical pitching

Hulls & Stability
The 10.6m beam has a centre of buoyancy in each hull providing lateral stability reducing rolling moments.
Long fine vertical bows pierce thru seas rather than be pitched up by them.
Four down angled carbon fibre bow fins below the water line resist up and down pitching moments.
Two carbon fibre Hydro Foils between the hulls provide dynamic lift reducing the wetted surface area by two thirds of the draft reducing hull drag and improving performance. The foils also provide vertical motion damping providing onboard comfort.
Two electric/hydraulic transom trim tabs trim the vessel for each sea state for best performance and onboard comfort.
Four moulded carbon fibre bilge keels per hull provide directional stability and decrease the vessels draft giving it outstanding shallow water ability.
The shallow draft allows the vessel to nose up to a sandy beach to directly land marines onshore.
