Powered by twin 200hp engines with speed 40 knots.
Provision for a full aft awning and bow access via hatch.
- THE AIR RIDER’S ABILITY TO SAFELY FOLLOW AND QUARTER SEAS AS WELL AS ITS INCREDIBLE ABILITY TO CARRY LOAD WHILST MAINTAINING SPEED, SETS THE BENCHMARK FOR DESIGN.
The finely tuned hull shape has a well established reputation in several fields including patrol, sea search and rescue and commercial fishery.
What sets the Air Rider apart are the unique, two full length outer hull tunnels, which entrap air, causing aerated water to lubricate the hull tunnels. This effect gives a softer ride and safer handling in ALL sea conditions.
The Air Rider is the most dynamically stable hull shape that GMD has developed over the past 25 years.
- The hull self corrects when running in following seas.
- Air Rider hulls feel more stable at rest than an equivalent size monohull, making for a safer work platform.
