6m Centre Console
The vessel can be fitted with an optional Bimini for additional sun protection aft of the open hard top. The open hardtop includes a sealed overhead compartment above the windscreen for housing radios, with the centre console dashboard housing all engine gauges.
This centre console vessel is also fitted with a built in drainable live catch tank, fitted to the centre line of the vessel. The tank is sized so it can also accommodate five standard size dive cylinders.
A flush hinge door is located on the port side of the transom. The door provides access for divers from the work deck to a marlin board mounted across the stern of the vessel. A sturdy dive ladder is fitted to the marlin board on the port side. Hand rails are fitted to both the port and starboard transom edges, with an additional handrail fitted vertically next to the starboard side of the transom door. The vessel is also fitted either side of the gunwhale with rod holders, which are suitable for accommodating dive flags.
With two different engine options, both will provide maximum propulsion of no less than 30 knots. The centre console design includes a 120 litre diesel under floor fuel tank.
The centre console vessel is designed to be constructed from marine grade aluminium, the vessel measures 6.00m overall, with a beam of 2.50m, and draft of 0.46m. The shallow draft of the design allows the vessel to enter shallow waters, such as canals and bays, whilst also capable of coastal and offshore operations within five nautical miles under survey exempt status.
