Jesus, the bosun on our flagship, the actual M/Y Ocean Warrior wanted to show off our new boat small boat and launching system!
Because of the work we are doing these days, we are outfitting our ships with beefier boats. These are actually designed for military use, not for leisure or tourism or any civilian purpose, as you will likely be able to tell.
Instead of the inflatable pontoons on the side, they feature rigid foam, and in place of the outboards, we have inboard engines connected to two incredible jet drives.
But this boat doesn’t just look good, it operates amazingly, flying through any sea state we have had it in so far!
To launch the new boat, the ship’s crane has been replaced with a davit – a state-of-the-art piece of kit, based on the very first launching mechanisms for small boats on ships. They are tried and tested to be able to work exactly as we need them to, and together with it and the small boat, the Ocean Warrior is now even more capable than before, to bring the fight to the poachers!
Since our comments are now open here on our Ocean Warriors site, let us know if you have any questions about the new boat or the Ocean Warrior!
