VT Halmatic Delivers Support Boats

Wednesday, April 30, 2003
VT Halmatic has delivered 4 RTK Logistic Support Boats to the Mauritius Police for use as heavy duty general purpose workboats by the Coastguard Division. The workboats are a new commercial derivative of the 9m Combat Support Boat proven in service with the UK Ministry of Defence and feature a raised aft-wheelhouse with a ramped well deck. The planning, asymmetrical catamaran hull form is manufactured from conventional GRP and features a high degree of reserve buoyancy to enable the craft to remain afloat when fully swamped. The self-draining well deck has 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 35 knots, the outboards are protected and can be quickly raised to facilitate beach landings.
