Safety:

These boats are built to always get you home with the back up of twin hulls, engines, fuel tanks and systems. Free draining decks with wash gate scuppers. Designed and built to NZ Maritime Safety Authority Survey standards, with fully welded hulls,watertight bulkheads, and double its own weight in reserve buoyancy .

Economy:

These craft are built to last with low maintenance aluminium hulls.They use around 40% less fuel than other planing boats carrying the same weight, and less  engine horsepower per ton is required to operate at cruising speeds. Less engine power and fuel requirement means a bigger remaining payload. We build easily driven no nonsense boats.

Load Carrying Capacity

Able to carry a higher payload because of the unique twin deep vee hull design combined with hydofoil support system that lifts the boat up out of the water when cruising.

Stability

The twin deep vee hulls settle well in the water at rest providing a stable platform.   Minimal heel... when passengers all go to one side  these boats just stay put.They don't pitch and roll like other vessels when under way. Sea sickness is rare on these boats, even in rougher seas.  

Rough Water Performance

These craft will out perform much larger boats in rough seas.They are strong and reliable in most sea states, with the ability to run ahead of a following sea with no tendency to broach, and also able to continue into a head sea at a good cruising speeds by cutting through the waves instead of the constant slamming of other boats!

No back injuries on the 1st Bladerunner Excitor Hole in the Rock boat, as she was a soft riding craft even at high speeds !

Fuel efficiency

The foil is around 3 x more efficient at generating lift than the planing surfaces it replaces. This means up to 40% further on that tank of petrol at cruising speeds carrying the same weight !

Speed

Fast and efficient in nearly all sea state.A wide cruising speed range means you are able to continue planing in most seas.

Maneuverability

These hydrofoil supported twin deep vee hull form catamarans bank in on turns!Although easy to turn, they can also hold a dead straight course at any heading to the sea.The hydrofoil is the pivot centre for trim control and allows the helmsman to trim the bow up in a following sea for huge reserves. When going into the seas, the bow is trimmed down to allow the foil to go straight through the waves, and the long deep vee hulls bridge the chop providing a soft stable ride.

Good looking Cats that are fast, stable, and super efficient
