Wight Shipyard Co (WSC)’s newbuild hybrid vessel unveiled at Seawork 2019.  

Setting new standards in the patrol and pilot vessels the 9m hybrid is a step change for operators including port and river authorities, police, MOD and Royal Navy who need to meet new pollution standards.

Port authorities, harbor and river patrols need to keep pace with the changing environmental requirements seeking solutions and vessels that can operate zero emissions but switch easily between variable speeds when necessity arises.

WSC is known for its environmentally friendly builds in the ferry sector including Red Funnel’s Red Jet 6 & 7, two MBNA Thames Clippers, along with multiple ferry deliveries for export worldwide. Currently the new Arksen Hybrid Explorer yacht is in build with ground-breaking technology and innovative progressive solutions to meet future environmental requirements and goals.
