Multipurpose marine survey boat Gladius

The Gladius boat is intended for integrated marine survey and subsea engineering operations.

This boat has a rigid fiber glass hull structure with an inflatable collar (RHIB) popular for small and rescue vessels. This construction represents a solid shaped hull and flexible tubes at the gunwale.

There is a pole moulded into the hull bottom amidship near the center line onto which survey equipment is mounted. The stationary U-shaped plastic mast is intended for all kinds for antennas and sensors. The comfortable heated wheelhouse contains all survey and navigational equipment. The main advantages of this boat are perfect seagoing and household features, as well as high sustainability (up to 5 days).

The wheelhouse provides comfortable working environment at sea under any climatic conditions. High reliability and seaworthiness are a proven solution for engineering demands far from shore bases (150-mile range). 

The boat can be transferred in a trailer (less than 700 kg) which is perfect for work in different regions of the Russian Federation.
