In Partnership with the Wheelyboat Trust, we’ve developed an industry first Bow Opening Door, high speed boat in GRP. From the drawing board of renowned naval architect Andrew Woolstenholm, we can offer the new Coulam V20. Original use was for wheel chair access, but with the bow opening door, it’s uses are wide and far reaching, from dive support vessel, harbour master launch, foot passenger ferry, general workboat for both inland and coastal, smaller quad bike / motorbike ferry, Davit lifting points can be bonded in at time of manufacture so that she can be lifted out on to a mother ship. The bow door offers great flexibility for loading / unloading heavy equipment without any need of lifting.
Built and fitted out to a commercial standard, all fittings and fixings are of a quality stainless steel and all GRP materials are to Lloyd’s approval. Everything is hand built at our workshops so bespoke or modified options are no problem.
