Onshore, Offshore or Near-shore Ops: Mission Possible
Any first responder will tell you how critical a few seconds can be. For those in the coast guard, navy, search and rescue and law enforcement profiles, they can mean the difference between saving a life and mission success, or not.
OCM’s amphibious professional boats offer them unparalleled mobility, accessibility and a world of convenience. How? They allow for accelerated response time as they can be driven straight into the water or on to the beach, and can access tricky areas such as those in the high tide range or in very shallow waters.
Smoother Rides, Wider Reach
More than just boats with wheels, these versatile RHIBs are powered by OCM’s advanced BAS-100 Amphibious system, comprised of 4 independently motorized and steerable wheels. The system is fully marinized, and the wheels stay completely out of the water once the boat is deployed. A deep-V fiberglass hull constructed in OCM’s concave reverse chines design, delivers smoother, drier rides, increased lift for more overall speed and agile cornering capabilities. Moreover, the custom manufactured rims and marine coated wheels, with custom tires, offer optimum load balancing, improved traction and high stability on land, while a hydraulic braking system enhances safety. All of which makes exceptional performance both on water and on land.

Customized to Mission Specs
Any OCM boat can be built as an Amphibious boat. And with all of our offerings, these boats can be customized from the hull up to accommodate special requirements.

And because the engineering, design and production of all our boats is done inhouse, OCM offers the unique ability to create new models in a short time and to specific requirements.
