"Marie Pierre" - 12.5m Work Catamaran
"Salt Shaker 480" - New Video
"Gardian 1" - 20m Alicat Wind Farm Catamaran - MK 09051
Based on our highly successful jet cat "Sea Stryder" in this same category, the "Gardian" has been specifically developed for the rapidly growing UK and European Wind Farm market place and was built by our UK agent Alicat Workboats, a subsidiary of Gardline Shipping.
The hull is designed with keels and twin propellers, but can be built with twin waterjet propulsion. The propeller vessel achieved a genuine 30 knots in trials off Southampton in June 2010. Caterpillar have since re-programmed the engines from 1800 to 2100 RPM and as a trade off we lost 2 knots off the top speed and picked up a heap of bollard pull.
The design is fully approved to Det Norske Veritas DNV and was built to UK MCA code for Cat 2 vessels 60 miles offshore and 4 metre seas.
These boats can be supplied direct from our builders waterfront facility in the UK. Please see contact details in the additional details below.
