Nautic Africa is proud to announce the keel laying of the first vessel in a bespoke commercial range of Rigid Foam Collar boats. The first vessel, an 8.5m, 6 pax, single point lift SOLAS vessel will be launched in June 2012 and will feature an in-board diesel jet propulsion system.
Rigid Foam Collar boat range
The vessel will fall into a new range of four vessels ranging in size from 6.5m to 12m. The first vessel will feature a full aluminium hull construction powered by a single 400 HP Marine Diesel engine and Almarin Jet.
A GRP/Composite version utilising the trademark Ballistic hull shape will be available using the same drive train configuration later in 2012.
The 6.5m and 12m are planned for 2013 release.
As is the entrenched philosophy at Nautic, all vessel models will be heavily customisable to the exact requirements of the customer depending on the application environment.
The first two vessels will be shipped to customers in July 2012 after extensive sea trials and class approval.
