Twin Tasman Naiad 8.5m Boats
New design 8.5m Naiads were launched last week on both sides of the Tasman. In Yamba, the first of two identical boats for NSW Roads and Maritime Safety had its initial trials. This boat is powered twin Suzuki 250hp engines. and in Picton a similar boat was delivered to the Marlborough District Council Harbourmaster's Office. This boat replaced an ageing 8.5m Protector and has been built to a weight that allows it to be trailered on a "light" 3500kg trailer.
