Patrol

Fast Patrol Vessels are designed and built at Brödr. Hukkelberg and equipped to comply with UK MCA rules for this vessel.  Each boat is inspected by Bureau Veritas and is designed, built and equipped in compliance with IMO SOLAS regualations.

 

Design and Construction

 

All boats have share the same well-proven design of a fully planing deep V hull in marine grade aluminium and superstructure of GRP sandwich construction. The boats are built for maximum safety of the crew, is self-righting and with all voids in the boat filled with special foam, the vessels are unsinkable.

 

The superstructure provides comfortable accommodation for the crew. 

 

Performance

 

The design of the vessel and strength of construction means that even at full speed, the boat can withstand all normal forces encountered during use, even offshore. The low draught means that the boat is particularly effective for close inshore operations. The boat is extremely manouverable, well balanced and with twin waterjets can turn on it's own axis. 

 

Standard propulsion is twin waterjets although stern drives are an option. A variety of engine sizes from a number of manufacturers can be installed to suit vessel size and the required performance of the end-user. Typical top speeds are from 31 - 40 knots depending on hull length and engine size.

 

Operation

 

If required, the boats can be equipped with a single point lifting arrangement with an approved release hook for safe launch from the Mothership or platform. The pilot is able to release the craft remotely from inside the wheelhouse.
