Aus Ships Group has completed trials and testing of a multi-role patrol boat designed for coastal operations across various conditions and scenarios.
As shown in its basic centre-console configuration, the vessel provides a base capable of being configured for multiple roles. With options such as targa-top, half cab or fully enclosed cabin available to suit the intended operation.
A standout feature of the vessel it as the engine speed is increased, the vessel speed increases very linearly with no noticeable “hump” speed. This characteristic is extremely important in offshore or towing operations where vessel interim speeds between displacement mode and planing (~7-15 kts) are required.
The vessel is fitted with twin 200hp outboards but can be configured with a wide range of power as required.
