A new multipurpose connectable plastic workboat offers versatility to a variety of end users.

Seahunter can serve as a multi-use commercial platform or powered vessel, with each hull designed to used individually or connected together at port, starboard or bow with lockable pins.
 
Manufactured in Norway, Spain and Finland by Finnish based Lamor Corporation, the catamaran hull is constructed in rotomolded thermo plastic (PE), which ensures durable and low maintenance surface, the builder said.
 
Well suited for assisting in skimming and clean-up operations nearshore, rivers and lakes, the versatile platform is also suited for work in marinas, swamps and transporting passengers along shorelines and rivers. Seahunter can carry up to seven passengers and is easily transportable by trailer, truck, container, etc. The hulls – which weigh less than 1,000 pounds apiece – can even be stored on top of each other.
 
Furthermore, with a carrying capacity up to 3,300 lbs, each Seahunter can transport more than three times the weight of its hull.

The hull can be equipped with up to a 50HP outboard engine. Additional options include a steering console with hydraulic steering, electric start, trim/tilt, propeller protection guard, anti-skid material on all flooring, manual davit, tow bar, rear entry ladder, side ladder, cleats, railings, sun cover and trailer.
 
According to Lamor, the Seahunter has gained international popularity thanks to its quality and durability, and is used in many European countries for a wide range of commercial purposes. 
 
“I have successfully used the Seahunter in oil spill response operations, and since my passion is fishing and hunting, I realized its value in transporting supplies, including four-wheelers and people to and from their sail boats in marinas, as well as a general work platform in secluded harbors, lakes and bays,” said Dan Beyer, General Manager of Lamor USA Corporation.
