Aluminum Utility Craft – Sea Dragon
Aluminum utility craft with kayak launch deck:
UnCruise Adventures came to us for the design of this custom wide-body 28’ utility skiff. The primary purpose of the craft is to accompany a larger passenger vessel and facilitate launching of kayaks and transfer of passengers between small craft and the larger vessel. The craft is designed to ABS & ISO standards and is equipped with the following features:
- Dedicated kayak launch and retrieval bays.
- Hinging transom tailgate, which extends the kayak launching deck.
- Variable water ballast system to allow adjustment of the height of the kayak launch deck relative to the waterline.
- Push knees and boarding stairs at the bow for ease of mooring and passenger transfer to larger vessels.
The vessel was constructed by the fine folks at Armstrong Marine USA and delivered in spring of 2018.
