PLA Catamaran

Designed by the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, and Dr. A. Mantouvalos, and built by ALNMARITEC for the Port of London Authorities to be operated in the river Thames. The specific project was developed in order to maintain the highest service speed while producing minimal wash. Once the first vessel was delivered and tested by PLA staff, 4 more boats were ordered. The design is 13.5m long and weighs 11 tonnes, is powered by 2 x 200 hp engines contracted for 18 knots, achieved 21.5 knots fully loaded.
