“DINGO MARLEY” – 7.5M (24′ 7″) AIR RIDER

Following a long line of Air Riders used for sea search and rescue, “Dingo Marley” was newly designed for Bunbury Sea Rescue from the keel up. This latest hull uses the Air Rider’s proven dynamic stability and predictable sea keeping to push the hull bottom deadrise up to 28° with a new near-plumb stem and a very fine wave slicing bow.
This new hull has proven itself capable beyond its size, having already rescued several larger vessels.

“Dingo Marley” uses a combination of buoyant above deck compartments and a flooding keel to achieve NSCV 2C stability compliance for 2 + 4, making her our smallest Air Rider hull to do so.

Professionally built by Westerberg Aluminium Boats in Albany, the fit out is extensive but hard wearing. To enhance SAR duties the vessel is equipped with FLIR night vision, Raymarine radar, dual multifunction screens, search light and Shockwave suspension seating. Power comes from twin Suzuki 200hp outboards which give a sprint speed of 40 knots at 6000RPM, meaning that next rescue is never too far away




Built by Colin Smith Boat Builders from an all-new GMD Marine Kit, Maximum Achiever is the spiritual successor to Stan Priddles’s 54′ GMD designed vessel “Quiet Achiever” as well as other successful vessels such as “Mystique” and “Aqua Jade”.  With a more upright stem, finer entry, wider reverse chines and more we’ve included a decade of design refinement to the hull shape while maintaining the clasically beautiful lines.
Initial sea trials in a 15-20 knot westerly gave 25 knots sprint at 2300rpm from the 900hp Scania, cruising at 19 knots and 1800rpm.  Skipper Ben Wilson, who oversaw the fitout, tells us the vessel is smooth and comfortable, turns well and runs very dry. Joking he hasn’t had a chance to test the wipers yet!
Our rock lobster fishing hulls are extremely seaworthy and efficient, making them ideal for many fisheries, charter, patrol and workboat duties.
