Victoria Police Buy Kiwi-Made
Building on their obvious satisfaction with the success of their last acquisition from Q-West, Victoria’s Water Police have come back for another. Same designer, same yard. VP01 is a 16.7m Scania-powered Hamilton Jet-propelled catamaran with a distinctive wave-piercer hull design.
January 26 2018 was International Customs Day, and was considered a suitable day for Q-West Boat Builders to officially handover to New Zealand Customs Service their newest vessel the 18.6 metre Teknicraft-designed Hawk V.
Q-West has delivered another prime Teknicraft-designed, Scania driven, Hamilton Jet-powered patrol vessel. This one, Hawk V, is a very stealthy, then speedy 18.6m catamaran.
Q-West’s approach to building these vessels was to build craft that operate for a large amount of hours and to minimise the downtime and refit work for the future.
Wellington’s new pilot boat is the second Scottish-designed, Kiwi-built pilot vessel commissioned in New Zealand. 19.8m, twin Scania-powered, this Q-West boat impresses on a lot of levels. Take a close look at the workmanship and evident thought that have gone into this specialist vessel.
