Watercat 1100 Pilot
In early 1990’s Marine Alutech Oy Ab started the cooperation with Finnish Maritime Administration in sector pilot boats. As a result Marine Alutech Oy Ab designed and developed companys first model - Watercat 1100 Pilot.
These water jet powered pilot boats were designed for the Finnish and the Swedish Maritime Administrations. The boats are based on Watercat 1100 series. The hull is made of aluminium and is all welded construction, built according to the DNV rules for work boats less than 15m.
The flexibly mounted wheelhouse is of GRP sandwich construction. By using different absorbing and damping materials in the boat, the noise level stays below 70 dBa in the wheelhouse. The wheelhouse has the basic Watercat system -layout with damped seats and a sofa for two.
The hull is divided into five watertight compartments: forepeak, tank room, engine room and cofferdams at sides of the engine room.
