Seattle, WA – – Kvichak Marine Industries, Inc. recently launched and completed successful sea trials for M/V Defender V, a new design all-aluminum foil assisted catamaran. Designed by Kvichak Marine, this 57′ 8″ vessel can be used as a fast response patrol boat, survey boat, crew boat or general work boat.
The Defender V is powered by twin Scania DI12 69M marine diesel engines rated for 691 BHP at 2300 RPM. The engines are coupled to ZF 360A transmissions that drive Michigan propellers. In trials, the Defender V was able to achieve a flank speed of 30+ knots. The vessel features a very large aft work-deck with tie-pockets, a 2,200 lb SWL A-frame with hydraulic drum winch, and a side mounted davit with 500# SWL winch. The A-frame can facilitate launch and recovery of skiffs/ROVs and can accommodate an over-height 20′ long x 8′ wide container loaded on the aft deck.
Constructed to very high quality and performance standards, Defender V represents the current state of the art for foil assisted catamarans of this type.
