Based on the high standard construction of a SOLAS rescue boat, the Survitec DSB 7.8mSR is manufactured from hypalon coated fabrics with a robust aluminium hull. The hull is a concealed chamber, strong enough to accommodate a variety of payloads. It offers full navigational performance combined with strength and proven stability. Survitec offer the seven chamber system, air filled or with a foam fender tubes. The boat features hull integrated fixation and lifting points for quick and safe deployment. Single point lifting versions are available, as are quick inflation systems in combination with protection of overpressure of fender tubes. The boat has multiple reinforcements and sufficient protection to meet all safety standards.
Designed for speed and agility, the Survitec 7.8SR Military High Speed Interceptor is an ideal concept for “SWARM” type tactics and enables both sustained and shoot and scout engagement. The boat benefits from a heavy duty sea water resistant aluminum sandwich hull in frame and stringer construction. The fender tube is made out of UV resistant Hypalon fabric 1670 dtex and has seven independent air compartments. The boat is fitted with heavy duty easy maintenance military inflation valves. To facilitate boat handling the helmsman /crew console is made out of sea water resistant aluminum and has clear windscreen with negative top end section to reduce wind effect on crew. The proposed boat has an integrated illuminated engine multi-function display unit (or system integration).
The robust boat design makes it an ideal choice for Rapid Response, Surveillance, Patrolling, Law Enforcement, Anti-Piracy Operations, Search and Rescue Operations and Medical Evacuations. This boat is an existing design and a non-developmental item (NDI), and has been proven in combat operations. The boat is easy to store, lift and handle, and enables safe, reliable and stable operations.
