Halmatic Secures Mauritius Police Order

Friday, August 16, 2002
To satisfy their requirement for 4 heavy duty multi-purpose workboats the Mauritius Police have opted for the RTK Marine 9m Ramped Logistic Support Boat. The workboats are a new commercial derivative of the 9m Combat Support Boat proven in service with the U.K. Ministry of Defense and feature a raised aft-wheelhouse with a ramped well deck. The planing, asymmetrical catamaran hull form is manufactured from GRP and features a high degree of reserve buoyancy to enable the craft to remain afloat when fully swamped. The self-draining well deck features a manually operated bow ramp and is capable of carrying a short wheelbase Land Rover, general cargo or personnel with the modular straddle seating in place. Power is provided by twin 200 hp outboard motors to give a service speed in excess of 30 knots, the outboards are protected and can be quickly raised to facilitate beach landings.
