In addition to the spacious driver and control cabin that has room for the full crew, the boat is equipped with well-organized working decks. The cabin protects the crew against the surrounding environment, enhances comfort and provides ideal work conditions for the operators. Powerful light projectors on the aft deck provide ample light when operations can’t benefit from the luxury of daylight.

The aft-deck features as well a secondary control station for steering and controlling the boat from the aft deck.

The ProZero 8m hull provides for a stable ride, even in rough seas where most vessels must surrender. Fast operations in rough seas are only limited by human constraints.
