Kewatec Pilot 1820

Kewatec Pilot 1820 is the flagship in the pilot boat fleet of the Kewatec AluBoat shipyard. It is designed for the Atlantic coast of Norway, where there are many in use.

Pilot 1820’s seaworthiness is influenced by its size, V-bottom and powerful engines. In addition, Pilot 1820 can take ballast water up to 3.5 tons. Despite this balancing extra weight, the light aluminum boat is reasonably fuel-efficient considering its size and performance. At the speed of 30 knots, it consumes 6.5 liters per nautical mile.

The eighteen-meter boat is also surprisingly agile. With the help of two Volvo IPS propulsion units and a computer-controlled joystick you can turn around the Pilot 1820 or move it sideways to the desired location. Docking is made easy with another control joystick located at back deck.

The Pilot 1820 is specially designed for the safety and comfort of the crew. The heating also serves both. It keeps the wheelhouse with five separate suspension seats and spacious salon warm in all weather, but also melts ice and snow from the deck.
