USA Catamarans Offers Avenger Series RIBs

USA Catamarans offers its gas turbine-powered Avenger 78.7-ft. (24-m), all-aluminum, unsinkable RIB. Propulsion is through KaMeWa 45 wateijets. With a passenger capacity of 100 and a service speed of 50 knots in an operational environment that encompasses sea state 4, USA Catamarans now has a single hull that reportedly outperforms its own foil-assisted catamarans.

The high deadrise hull reportedly has half the drag of the standard deep-vee. During sea trials of an Avenger 39.3-ft. (12-m), super critical operation was reportedly achieved at speeds of more than 40 knots. According to preliminary calculations based on the performance of the scale model, an 101.7-ft. (31-m) Avenger crewboat powered by two Solar centaur gas turbines with KaMeWa waterjets will carry 50 tons at 50 knots, in eight to 10 ft. (2.4 to 3-m) seas.
