This unusual boat is the first of its class and is designed as a versatile survey boat for both inshore and offshore operations. She is capable of being transported to different survey locations on a specially adapted truck and her dimensions have been carefully controlled to ensure that the truck and boat are fully roadworthy without requirement for an escort. She is designed to very directionally stable for slow speed surveying yet she has a surprising turn of speed to allow her to get quickly to offshore survey sites. Fitted with twin waterjets she is exceptionally manoeuvrable enabling her to operate in confined spaces and she has a very spacious wheelhouse with survey station, WC and small galley /sink. She has a step down at the aft end to allow for ease of diving operations and a clear working deck aft which allows her to be used in a variety of different roles.
