Interceptor 55 / 16.5m CREW TRANSFER / WORK BOAT is boat is based on our very successful
Interceptor 55 pilot boat, featuring the same deep V twin chine semi displacement
hull that provides excellent performance and seakeeping.
duty rubber fendering protects the hull with substantial 150x150mm
fendering along her gunwale. Her
boarding area as wide, spacious and uncluttered providing a safe working
area for pilot and crew who benefit from her raised sheerline and flared
bow, keeping decks dry and safe.
She has a very high level of fit out throughout the craft with the large wheelhouse providing enough space to allow combining the standard 3 crew & 12 passenger seats. All internal furnishings are from walnut effect laminate, white headlining and grey sidelining providing a warm, high quality yet practical environment. Forward there is sleeping accommodation afforded by traditional V berths combined with large bunk berths, a galley area, a full size heads compartment and provides a very comfortable crew environment
From an operational perspective, a centrally positioned helm position provides her coxswain with clear uninterrupted vision equally to port and st/bd, large side and overhead windows to assist visibility when alongside ships. Her helm position has been especially designed to provide a focused and ergonomically efficient operators environment, which allows the coxswain to take full advantage of the Interceptors fine responsive handling. Typically, which is the case with all Safehavens craft, her seakeeping is exceptional. Demonstration sea keeping videos viewable to the left on this page, undertaken in full storm force 9 conditions amply displayed their confidence in her abilities. Safe and controllable running downwind, stable beam on and very soft punching into steep head seas are the Interceptors trademark.
