Safehaven Marine tests its boats in extremely rough conditions
Safehaven Marine build ‘All weather’ lifeboats and pilot boats. What does ‘all weather’ mean? Put simply it means the boat is capable of operating in all weather conditions, up to storm force 10 and 6-7m waves.
Pilot boats, especially those operating out of open Atlantic coasts experience big seas regularly, often on a daily basis during winter months and need to be especially capable of dealing with heavy weather.
Therefore undertaking sea trials in rough, storm generated conditions has been, and continues to be a fundamental part of both Safehaven Marine's design process in both understanding what constitutes good sea keeping, and ensuring the boats engineering is fully capable of withstanding the tremendously violent and harsh conditions experienced by all elements of the boat whilst weathering a storm.
