Naiad 15.0m Twin Shaft Drive

This Naiad 15m Pilot Boat has built upon the huge success of Lion Rescue, a 14.6m Naiad Coastguard vessel built for Auckland Coastguard in 2002. The fine entry bow and 20 degree deadrise give excellent ride comfort and the ability to handle head sees with speed.

Naiad consults intensely with the purchaser and users of these RIBs prior to designing a boat to cover their particular needs. For many Pilot boats foam fenders are chosen as Ports are extremely busy places and as such the Pilot boat is in demand full time.

The power and drive system requirements for Pilot boats differ greatly, this is where Naiad's custom design ability is crucial. It allows the needs of the client to be meet with a specific design that suits the client perfectly.

This Naiad has excellent sea keeping abilities giving a soft ride in the short harbour chop and continues to be safe in the rougher waters encountered outside of the safety of the harbour. The Pilot house has plenty of windows giving exceptionally good all round visibility, inside shock mitigating seats offer additional comfort and leading edge electronics just add to the whole package.
