Considered more cost effective than steel or fibreglass & more resistant to damage from collision & corrosion, this aluminium hulled Workboat & Landing Craft in marine grade 5083 aluminium plate is versatile, strong, light-weight, durable & low maintenance cost.
Ideal for the transportation of goods & personnel (easily accessible for those with injury / disability), these models have been previously utilised for harbour debris clearance, removal of waste material from ships at anchor, rescue on flood plains & as an inter-island ferry in British Columbia.
This particular example, constructed in 2015 to MCA Workboat Code of Practice, complete with wiring, batteries & operating bow door, has never been used.
Twin diesel engines would need to be supplied and fitted separately but 2 x 80hp outboards, with extra long shaft, would enable this vessel to achieve speeds of around 30 knots.
