The Whaly 500 Professional has been designed with in a RIB-like format with both the hull and the ‘tube’ fully integrated and constructed at the same time by rotationally moulding the polyethylene in suitable moulds. The material is extremely hard wearing and can stand up to arduous use in a variety of applications. For this ‘Professional’ design the craft has a landing craft style with a hinged ramp at the bow that can be lowered manually for beach access or for easily loading heavy equipment.
This hull is 4.99 metres long with a beam of 2.10 metres and the craft has a low profile of just 1.01 metres which allows it to be easily stowed on board larger craft when used as a tender. The weight without the motor is 350 kg.
The ‘Professional’ is designed to be powered by a small outboard and the recommended power is 50hp. Tiller steering and control are used with the driver sitting on the aft thwart. Speeds are modest but when lightly loaded the craft will come up onto the plane and achieve speeds of around 20 knots. The hull has a shallow vee with side skegs and this makes for easy planing.
The Lamor Seahunter can serve as a multiple use commercial platform or powered vessel. Each hull is designed to be connected together either at port, starboard or bow with simple lockable pins, or it can be used individually. It is ideal for working in marinas, swamps and transporting passengers along shoreline and rivers.
The catamaran shaped hull is manufactured in rotomolded thermo plastic (PE), which ensures durable and low maintenance surface. The hull can be equipped with up to a 50hp outboard engine. Additional options available include a steering console with hydraulic steering, electric start, trim/tilt, propeller protection guard, anti-skid material on all flooring, manual davit, tow bar, rear entry ladder, side ladder, cleats, railings, sun cover and trailer.
The Lamor Seahunter can carry up to seven passengers and is easily transported on trailers, in trucks, containers etc. The hulls can also be stored on top of each other. Its hull weighs less than 1,000 pounds (450kg).
