S-Ribs Custom Boatbuilding has finished the trials of the first boat of "SWR-120" project


published on 7 December 2021 66 -

SWR-120 is a multi-purpose, heavy-duty, high-speed planing boat for operation in costal sea areas, in open sea as a daughtercraft and in lakes and rivers in any climate zone. Depending on the equipment installed, the boat can be customized as Search and Rescue, Patrol, Work, Pilot, Crewtender, Diving support, Hydrographic survey or a Daughter craft. SWR-120 structures and systems are designed to meet ISO Small Craft certification and Bureau Veritas HSC classification Rules.

Aluminum deep V hull bottom shape with moderate transom deadrise with wide bow lines give optimal sea-keeping ability, especially in heavy seas. At the same time prismatic hull shape provides more stable deck surface, while moving around the superstructure. Deck without steps and obstacles is good for prompt and urgent operations, working and moving the equipment on the deck, MOB rescue.

Wide hull beam (3,3m) gives SWR-120 good payload capacity and more space inside and outside for systems and special equipment; more cabin space. With moderate draught of 0,80m and waterjets the boat can be freely used in shallow waters close to the shore.

A lot of different equipment designed and installed makes the boat really multi-purpose: rigid fender, hydraulic crane, safety rail, aft rescue platform, quick-release hook, dry-break coupling fuel filling system, windshield washers, separate genset and battery charger, windows heating, thermo-camera, AIS, GMDSS radio-navigation for A2 area, separate FF pump, twin diesels paired with waterjets.

1600l of diesel fuel provide quite a long range of 380 miles and fresh/hot water supply together with the fully equipped galley open the opportunity to operate for a long period without coming back to the shore.

Additionally the boat is designed to be self-righting and has all the needed systems for that.

Video Pilot Boat Capsize Test

published on 13 December 2019

posted on YouTube by "Marine Online"
Capsizing or keeling over occurs when a boat or ship is turned on its side or it is upside down in the water. The act of reversing a capsized vessel is called righting. If a capsized vessel has enough flotation to prevent sinking, it may recover on its own if it is not stable inverted. Vessels of this design are called self-righting.
