Halmatic To Supply RIBs For

Maritime & Coastguard Agency

Halmatic, one of the leading U.K. commercial and military boatbuilders, has announced a contract to sup- ply four Pacific 32 wheelhouse rigid inflatable boats, three Arctic 22 rigid inflatable boats and one RTK

Marine 29-ft. (9-m) Logistic Support Boat to the UK

Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA).

The new fleet is designed to fulfill the MCA's wide operational requirements and will be based around the

United Kingdom. The new craft will be built to Lloyds

Register of Shipping Rules Report 10 and the MCA

Brown Code Category 3 Rules.

The RTK Marine Logistic Support Boat is a com- mercial derivative of the successful Combat Support

Boat currently in service with the U.K. Ministry of

Defence. The craft features an asymmetrical narrow tunnel hull form and is powered by twin Yanmar inboard diesel engines coupled to Hamilton waterjets to provide a service speed in excess of 25 knots. The large wheelhouse will accommodate six crew on indi- vidual suspension seats and boast a galley, air-con- ditioning and day heads.

The Arctic 22 rigid inflatable boats will be trailer mounted for ease of deployment and will be pow- ered by twin 90-hp outboard motors. Like the Arctic 22, Pacific 32 rigid inflatable boats feature a large air-conditioned wheelhouse with seating for six crew, galley and day head; Both will house twin Yan- mar inboard diesels driving Hamilton waterjets to provide a service speed in excess of 25 knots.
