“Wanbangu” – 19m (62′) Monohull
This 19m multi role pilot boat was designed from the keel up by GMD launched in 2021 for Auriga Pilots and operates out of the port of Dampier in Western Australia.
The soft riding hull exhibits exceptionally clean and dry running, with a sprint speed of 30 knots and comfortable cruise speed of 25 knots.
The resiliently mounted wheelhouse makes for quiet and comfortable transits with noise levels of just 65dB, about as loud as a conversation! The layout makes great use of interior space and includes a stairwell to below decks, a large shower/wc, mess area and accommodation for four.
The hulls structure is designed to Lloyds SSC class rules, meaning this design would be suitable for most IACS class authorities with little to no modification. The arrangment would also make for an excellent crew transfer, patrol or harbor support vessel.
