Sturdy multi-purpose boat
This boat is designed to serve as a small and simple diesel workboat between shore and ships or pontoons. She has a shallow draft V-shaped, tough HDPE hull. Propulsion is by a 40HP inboard diesel connected to a shaft and propeller. She carries 1 crew and 4-5 passengers behind a good console and under a large aluminium T-top. The pushbow is good for the occasional pushing job and for easy boarding. This boat is very, very practical for every day use. And… the hull will need no paint jobs or anti-fouling!
Compared to other plastic boats or even small aluminium boats, this HDPE boat is much stronger and durable. HDPE is well known for its high resistance to impact. For this type of boat this makes all the difference. No punctures, no dents, the hull stays in shape even when abused. HDPE is highly resistant to growth.
