We have been conducting sea trials on our new powercat, the Rêvo 442. When we set out to develop this boat, the goal was to make a boat that was better in every way or not do it at all and we believe we have achieved that goal. Handling is superb with two widely spaced drives making the boat turn within its own length at low speed. The hulls give a soft ride into a head sea which has often been considered the archillies heel of powercats. Safety in a following sea is secure with no tendency to broach. The boat is very dry for crew and passengers and the security of twin drives is reassuring. The low profile and narrow beam (as compared to conventional powercats) makes styling more appealing while utilisation of beam all the way forward means we have two full length bunks in this 14 foot powercat.
We see a big future for these boats in commercial applications and also as tenders for superyachts. Rescue craft would benefit hugely from this hull form also.

We have just delivered the first Purse Seiner Skiff to the builders. We supplied a kit through DIYNO Kitset Boats which will be coupled with a toyato 3 litre diesil and a Scott Waterjet. The boat is 5.5 metres long and is designed to be stable for towing but sea keeping was also an important consideration as the boats work all weather and conditions. We will post photos when the first boat is in the water.

We have just started the second development phase of our plastic longboat range. The first boat was very succesfull and the second version has been tailored more toward the pleasure boat market with canvas cabins used to provide shelter. The new hull will be powered by either jet or outboard and will feature a centre console helm, and bunks in the forward cabin area which is enclosed with a canvas top or alternatively it can be folded away and the forward area opened up completetly.
The boat is 6 metres long and will run a 40hp outboard or alternatively a 70hp inboard coupled to a seadoo waterjet.601PLB1601PLB9

we are currently in the preliminary design stage for a 40 foot alloy sailing cat. The boat is designed for livaboard/extended cruising but we are working closely with the boatbuilder to develop the most cost effective way to build a high quality, durable boat that can make the cruising dream a reality.
