new charter angling boat ‘Triton Explorer’
Working from both Ardglass and
‘TRITON EXPLORER’ is fitted with a VOLVO D12 650hp engine, giving a maximum speed of 27kts and a very economical and unstressed cruise of 18-20kts. The Volvo was chosen for its durability, power to weight ratio and competitive price. The engine comes as standard with electronic engine controls giving very precise control, and performs perfectly in the Interceptors Deep V Hull design. The large engine positioned deep in her hull gives her a very low centre of gravity, making her exceptionally stable and almost unstoppable in rough conditions. Seen in the accompanying pictures running alongside Cork Harbours new Pilot Boat, the ‘Glean Mor’, itself using an Interceptor 42 hull, proving about the best recommendation that can be given for any hull design, as a pilot boat has to operate safely in all weather conditions.
