New Arctic 20 RIBs for the Hellenic Navy

Wednesday, June 25, 2003
The Hellenic Navy have specified VT Halmatic Arctic 20 rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) for use aboard their new class of fast attack craft. The first boats have now been delivered to Greece for operational training prior to deployment. The new Arctic 20 has been designed for demanding military and commercial operators requiring a smaller robust general purpose RIB suitable for a wide variety of operational requirements. The Hellenic Navy’s Arctic 20 RIBs are fitted with twin 90hp outboard motors providing responsive handling and top speeds in excess of 40 knots. Davit-mounted aboard the new 62m ships the new Arctic 20’s will be used for general ship’s duties including boarding, rescue and personnel transfer. Powered by single or twin outboard motor installations the Arctic 20 offers various deck configurations that include both forward and aft steering positions. The standard specification includes hydraulic steering, a heavy duty, five compartment Neoprene inflation collar and a watertight instrument panel. VT Halmatic’s are the UK’s most prolific commercial and military boat builder. The current range of RIBs extends from 6.25m to 12m. Available as outboard engined Arctics or inboard engined Pacifics the craft are based on proven deep V hull forms that all offer exceptional sea keeping and durability.
