Phase Four


In Phase 4 of Project Perfect Storm's testing, the 11.5M Offshore Interceptor was equipped with a never-before-seen prototype Seakeeper ride control system, the largest system to date manufactured by the company. This phase focused on integrating and evaluating the Seakeeper system's performance and impact on the vessel's capabilities. The addition of this system provided extreme authority over the vessel, leading to the largest reduction in pitch, roll, and vertical acceleration when compared to modifications made in any other phase.

Following the established "5 Ways to the Sea" testing protocol from the previous phases, the interceptor underwent comprehensive trials to ensure enhanced stability, maneuverability, and overall performance under various sea conditions.

The addition of the Seakeeper ride control system in Phase 4 worked flawlessly with the strakeless running surface from Phase 2 and the hydraulic transom bracket added in Phase 3, creating a synergy of cutting-edge technologies working together in perfect harmony. These combined advancements resulted in a vessel with extreme high-performance capabilities, robust sea state survivability, multi-mission modularity, increased efficiency, increased crew situational awareness, and extended mission duration, while most importantly prioritizing human factors, reducing G-forces, slamming impacts, and preventable injuries, thus enhancing the safety and well-being of professional boat operators.
