NAIAD – 4WD OF THE SEA

Building a RHIB or foam fendered workboat is a highly specialized craft in which experience is invaluable.

That’s why Naiad has become the brand of choice in the commercial, government or military sectors. In its 30 plus years, the company has built more than 1200 boats for customers in every corner of the world looking for quality over compromise. Where other boats struggle in rough conditions, a Naiad gets the job done comfortably and safely, earning its reputation as the 4WD of the sea.

RHIB Tourism

Naiad has designed many eye-catching vessels specifically for tourism operators, never compromising on safety or reliability. Apart from the renowned low operating costs on a lineup of vessels from 8m to 14m, customizations are available on each Naiad to suit any particular purpose. A bow-boarding feature enables the operator to fold down a section of the bow fender, after which in-built steps provide passengers safe and easy access for beach landings. From eco-touring to whale watching, diving charters to water taxis, Naiad has the designs to perform virtually any activity.

RHIB Pilot

RHIB Pilot Vessels

When coming alongside a ship at up to 18 knots, safe, predictable handling is vital. And that’s exactly what Naiad does best. From the 9.5m twin outboard our range of pilot boats goes up to a 23m twin diesel shaft drive with specially isolated crew cabin. (You’ll be amazed at how incredibly quiet it is in this cabin – just 66dB at cruise speed). In between, Naiad also has 11.3m, 12.6m, 14.9m and 17.3m designs available. Featuring a D-shaped fender system consisting of laminated closed-cell foam coated with a tough polyurethane skin, all Naiad Pilot Boats are built to endure “controlled collisions” day-in, day out.
