Design 1262 (outboard version of design 1144) is designed for coastal waters and service speeds up to 40 knots and can be applied for several different commercial applications such as patrolling, policing but also recreational usage. The wheelhouse provides accommodation for up to 5 persons, with 360 degrees view. The spacious self bailing aft deck houses a Large capacity fueltank of some 680 Liters for up to 36 hours action radius.
The raised bow and foredeck, robust construction and good course stability even at higher speeds and severe conditions make this a safe and reliable craft. The hull’s integrated spray rails ensure minimum deck spray and a smooth overall ride. The hull shape stems from the proven ORCA design and includes the Delta-pad in the aft bottom section, for early planing mode at minimum speed.
