Kewatec Pilot 1820 is designed for the Atlantic coast of Norway, where there are already eight Kewatec boats in use. The boat's impressive seaworthiness is achieved by its size, V-bottom, and powerful engines. In addition, the boat can take water ballast up to 3.5 tons.
The boat, built entirely of aluminum, is light and uses a reasonable amount of fuel for its size and performance. At a speed of 30 knots, it consumes only 6.5 liters per nautical mile.
With a total length of 18.2, the boat is agile despite its size. The boat is equipped with two Volvo IPS propulsion units and a computer-controlled joystick that allows the boat to be turned around and moved side by side to the desired location. Narrow maneuvering is also facilitated by a second control station on the aft deck.
The new Kewatec Pilot 1820 will be delivered to Norway next summer.
