This 12m Crew Transfer Vessel (15pax, 2 crew) is designed to perform a safe and comfortable transit at high speed in variable sea conditions.
After extensive research into Tri-Hulls and Cathedral Hulls in the late 80’s, both of which have been in existence for many years, GMD developed the lines for what is now registered as the Air Rider.
THE AIR RIDER’S ABILITY TO SAFELY FOLLOW AND QUARTER SEAS AS WELL AS ITS INCREDIBLE ABILITY TO CARRY LOAD WHILST MAINTAINING SPEED, SETS THE BENCHMARK FOR DESIGN.
The finely tuned hull shape has a well-established reputation in several fields including patrol, sea search and rescue and commercial fishery.
What sets the Air Rider apart are the unique, two full length outer hull tunnels, which entrap air, causing aerated water to lubricate the hull tunnels. This effect gives a softer ride and safer handling in ALL sea conditions.
• The hull self corrects when running in following seas
• Air Rider hulls feel more stable at rest than an equivalent size monohull, making for a safer work platform.
This vessel is powered by triple 300hp Outboard engines with a cruise speed of 28 knots and a sprint speed of 35 knots. A unique feature is the triple outboards with a clever hull transition fairing to the middle engine, resulting in good handling and minimum ventilation of the engines in operation.
LOA is 12.16m with a generous beam of 4.1m, providing a large and stable work platform.
Fuel capacity is 1500 litres.
