13.5M PATROL BOAT

This design was created for the Port of London Authority, where the brief was to achieve a vessel that could make a high speed response when needed whilst still having a low wash wave height and so a minimised environmental impact on the Thames.  Design addressed the image of river patrol boats and their authority and centred on increasing the functionality which in turn developed an innovative and heavy look.  The boat has a central island wheelhouse, bulwark doors on both sides and a stern access platform, which will facilitate communication with river users such as canoeists, rowers and other users of small craft.
