Combined with Naiad's deep vee hull form, fatigue has been significantly reduced. This enables rescue crews to perform better in extreme conditions.

The hull has a 23 degree deadrise, giving a soft ride in rough seas. The fender adds to the quality and dryness of the ride acting as a shock absorber in harsh conditions.

The Naiad 8.5 is used by many NZ Coastguard units and are also in use with the Alaskan Fisheries Protection, the N.Z. Ministy of Agriculture and Fisheries, Australian VMR and Fishers and as water axis and patrol vessels. Whenever safety, stability, predictable handling and performance are called for and for boats used in places where the weather turns quickly for the worse Naiad makes the difference.
