Innovations | Military Boats Rigid Inflatable Boats RIB Boats



Ocean Craft Marine Boats is always at the forefront of engineering.

We have an extensive and ever evolving program of design and manufacturing. Our main innovations are as follows.

Vessel Construction
Vessel designs in both GRP and marine-grade aluminum construction.

Reverse Chine Hull Design
Our fiberglass hull is formed using a dynamic, concave “reverse chine” hull design. This design feature greatly adds to the boat’s sea-keeping, precise turning capability and inherent lift.

Removable Tube-sets (collars)
Tube-sets can be both glued-on and/or mechanically attached and field serviceable and are available as pneumatic or of foam/air hybrid designs. The tubes are finished in rugged quality Hypalon only and are available with multiple lifeline arrangements triple rub-strake, and all-round step-treads.

Aluminum Bow Reinforcement
The bow area of the tube can be finished with an overlapping aluminum reinforcement for added protection when boarding or loading operations are anticipated for this area of the vessel.

Amphibious System Licensed by Sealegs®
Only licensee outside of New Zealand for the use of amphibious vessel systems.

Automatic Inflation Systems
Single-point, auto-inflation systems for pneumatic tube-sets.

Diver /Swimmer Doors and Notches
Detachable diver tube-sections and diver tube-notches for dive-operations water-rescue/recovery operations

Integrated Diver Platforms and Ladders
Aircraft-grade 6061 T-651 aluminum construction

Ballistic Protection
Use of mission-modular Dyneema® anti-ballistic panels for protection of critical vessel and crew areas

C4SIR Technology Integration
Including thermal Imagery and low-light level video and recording capabilities, seamlessly-integrated crew-headset wireless communication systems, data and voice encrypted communication systems.

Shock-Mitigation Flooring
Exclusive use of Skydex® flooring systems

Shock Mitigation Consoles and Seating
Use of the industry’s latest shock-mitigation technology providers.

Deck-Track and Deck-Insert Systems
Careful design integration and use of these stainless-steel hardware systems enable multi-mission modularity of deck-space for various seating and mission-hardware alternative arrangements.

SOLAS Approved Designs
6.5 Meter approved SOLAS Fast Rescue Boats (FRB)

Self-Righting Systems
Aft-Arch Mounted, Easy-deployment Self-Righting Systems.

Crew-Serve Weapon Systems Integration
Weapon system mounts, electrical outlets and on-deck ammo storage.

Automatic Vessel Trim and Stabilization System
Humphree Interceptor Systems® transom mounted electrically-articulated trim-systems and user control-panel to automatically and instantly control vessel roll, pitch and yaw at speed.
