Flex-25

Flex-25

Pocket Rocket: The Ultimate Compact Crewboat.

In response to the market demand for a fast crew transfer vessel we developed a compact crewboat dubbed the Flex-25

With length overall of only 26.5 metres, the Flex-25 base model can carry up to 70 passengers in economy class seats and 4 tons of deck cargo at a speed in excess of 30 knots, as recorded during an official sea trial in September 2013.
