Alamarin-Jet have been working with Seahorse Marine for many years, it seemed like to logical thing to do was build a demo vessel together to show the benefits of Seahorse Marines vessels and construction partnered with Alamarins rugged and commercial products. The Sidewinder was developed for this purpose.
The Sidewinder workboat is a multi-purpose commercial vessel that offers versatility with a modular design that can be tailored to meet specific operational requirements, whilst exploiting the HDPE advantages of being robust, lightweight and flexible to work with. The concept behind the modular design of the Sidewinder is to provide a ‘future proof’ vessel. The hull incorporates an inboard engine bed which doubles as hold space for vessels with outboard engines. This also allows a vessel fitted with outboard engines to be easily converted to fit inboard engines saving lengthy downtime and lower modification costs. Other options include a detachable wheelhouse to convert it into a console vessel, and the absence of a tubular collar increases workable deck space.
Power is supplied by a pair of Volvo Penta D4 225 engines and thrust is supplied by a pair of Alamarin-Jet AJ 245 waterjets installed LONG TAIL.
Alamarin-Jet IO is installed with the Raymarine Autopilot system giving the most intuitive control available on the market.
