NEW GENESIS 2007 DEMONSTRATOR LAUNCHED

 

Our new demonstrator , a top spec Interceptor 37 'Genesis'  named 'Thunder Child' has been launched. She performed excellently on sea trails achieving 30kts at 8,500kg. A full report will follow soon.

On Sunday 4th March during a force 8, gusting force 9 gale, during the ebb tide we took Thunder Child  out to test her seakeeping abilities to the max, accompanying her was the Dublin Pilot boat. We captured some excellent footage of her, she was able to run alongside the Pilot boat, which was twice her weight in complete control, especially down wind, keeping the two boats close together to ensure good film was possible only as a result of both crafts responsive steering and handling and their excellent directional stability downwind. As you will see  from the video, at times conditions were challenging. Wave heights were  about 12ft, and in the ebb tide pretty steep with a huge breaking wave of 20ft being encountered by the pilot boat, an 'exciting' moment that can be seen on the video. Below are some pics from the trial.
