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 Jet version 18 mtr Patrol/ Crew boat is powered by twin MAN 1400hp engines with cruise speed at 28 knots with a sprint of 35+ knots.
This is a new build project, sistership pictures for reference.
This vessel is fully ready for production in kit form flatpack production, to be built at your shipyard of choice (subject to qualification) or we can arrange one of our experienced and qualified international yards to build.
