Video Discription: XSV20 'Thunder Child II' at sea (more detailed information at https://www.safehavenmarine.com/home) Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com Safehaven Marine are developing a new model to add to their extensive range of commercial and naval craft: ‘XSV20’. The design is a high speed patrol / S.A.R and interceptor with a moulded length of 21.5m and a LOA of 23m (75ft). The hull design is extremely innovative (Patent applied for) and seamlessly fuses a twin stepped asymmetrical catamaran hull form with a wave piercing monohull, to create a hybrid design that delivers the rough weather and high speed dynamic transverse stability of a catamaran, with the steep head sea capabilities of a deep V monohull. The first of class is currently under construction nearing completion. During the designs initial development 6mth R&D programme was undertaken, during which Safehaven built 12 scale model variants which were extensively tank tested to optimise the designs performance characteristics and hydrodynamics. Powered by either surface drives or waterjets, the design has a maximum speed well over 50kts, a 40kts+ cruise speed and a range of 500nm. The design incorporates all the features of Safehaven’s smaller 11-17m Barracuda range of naval craft, with greater endurance, payload and crew capacity. The design will enter full production in 2019.
