Port Angeles, WA – Armstrong Marine USA Inc. launched the 11.3m x 4.2m Naiad RHIB, Bay Voyager II, in late July. Successful builder sea trials in Port Angeles indicate a cruise speed of 25 knots.
The 28 passenger + 2 crew USCG Subchapter T vessel features Naiad’s heavy-duty fendering system and a full width aft canopy. The semi-open cabin and thoughtful design provide passengers with unobstructed views throughout the vessel, making it ideal for tour operations in a variety of settings.
Twin Yamaha 300hp outboards and 265-gallon fuel capacity ensure sufficient range for every adventure. Electronics include a Raymarine navigation package, Fusion stereo, and wireless PA system. For passenger comfort and convenience, a head compartment is incorporated beneath the console.
The Webasto heated cabin sleeps six with two cuddy staterooms and a convertible dinette. Llebroc helm and co-pilot seats feature shock mitigating pedestals for rough Northwest waters. The head includes a hot water shower, and the galley is well-equipped with a Force 10 ceramic cooktop, Norcold fridge/freezer, and bar sink.
Trevor O’Brien, Armstrong Marine’s Engineering Manager, said, “It was a pleasure partnering with Naiad’s engineering team again – their deep V hulls with progressive deadrise deliver exceptional performance, allowing operators to maintain higher speeds in comfort through rough conditions.”
