superior powering characteristics and seakeeping, giving this vessel double the range of stability of average vessels.
bow and stern thrusters allow for dynamic positioning of the vessel and the fixed/active stabilizers provide zero-speed
bilization capability. The hull is a conically projected, double-chined form with wide spray knocker, flared bow, and a t
som stern. The longitudinal framing system, with its wide-spaced transverse webs, gives maximum strength and eas
construction. Advanced technology appendages, including a bul-
bous bow, midship bulb, stern bulb, and propeller bi-foils, combine
to further reduce resistance. This efficiency allows for a wider
beam that results in a more spacious interior for the size of vessel,
and makes her quite unique.
