Recently built, launched and trialed by North Sea Boats to LOMOcean’s design are these two 10.4m RIB fast assault boats.
Powered by twin MD diesels and RR Kamewa water jets, the sprint speed when loaded easily exceeds the 40 knot contract requirement and crew reports indicate the hull to be soft riding, with responsive, nimble handling.
Construction is in infused vinlyester E-glass foam sandwich designed for extreme slamming decelerations of up to 5.5g.
The basic arrangement can be modified around the engine box to offer mid or forward helm location as required by the operator. A smaller outboard motor powered 9.2m variant can also be moulded from the same basic tooling.
