This boat is a new design from Naiad, building on our long experience both with rescue boats and jets in a variety of commercial and military applications. The key design objective has been to deliver a twin diesel jet in an economical package but still with plenty of working cockpit space, a large lock-up cabin with proper seats for 4 crew, forward cabin for storage, and well-deck. And all this without compromising handling, ride, and speed.

This new Naiad boat hits the button on all counts! The boats have an aggressive, no-nonsense look about them with the forward-raked windscreen and Naiad's trademark raised-shoulder sheerline. Power is from twin Yanmar 6LPA 232kW diesels, driving through Twin Disc MG5020 gearboxes to Hamilton 274 jets. The boat accelerates well hitting 30 knots in 12 seconds on the way to a top speed of 36 knots (fully loaded). Cruise speed is a comfortable 30 knots. Fuel capacity of 615 litres gives a range (with reserves) of over 200 nautical miles. The boats handle most impressively. With the typical Naiad deep vee hull with fine entry they slice nicely through the chop and land comfortably when encountering bigger seas.

The cockpit is an impressively large work area. There is ample space for crew to safely work down both sides of the engine box in many ways that is the key to making this boat work so well. The engine box itself has storage built-in for lines, pump hoses and the like, and the entire box hinges forward to 90 degrees giving excellent access to the engines and jets. There are dedicated lockers for fire/salvage pump and towrope. Entering the main cabin the immediate impression is one of space and excellent all-round visibility. There are four dedicated crew positions, with both positions on the port side being substantial nav/com stations. The aft nav/comm station is typically the skipper's command position.

Non-reflective cabin finishes are used throughout. The small forward cabin has seating on one side (with toilet), and the other side is storage which Naiad customise to each operator's requirements. A large cabin hatch provides safe access to the forward well deck for anchoring, handling lines, or transferring personnel. A forward flush deck is an option which will be attractive to operators who regularly cross harbour or river bars. Large multi-function displays are at three of the crew positions, plus backup sounder system for the helmsman, FLIR camera, typically three VHF radios, satellite tracking system, private UHF radio, and long-range cellphone.

Naiad offer a choice of sit/stand bolster units or third-party Isri or KAB suspension seats. The sit/stand units are a clever Naiad design the seat back and the seat base slide independently of each other. This allows the seat to work well as a wrap-around stand-up bolster with rump-rest, and also as a traditional seat.
