MILITARY BOATS

Naiad is part of an elite group of companies selected by the US Navy as "preferred suppliers". Naiad has been contracted to design a sophisticated twin diesel jet of 12 metres in length to assist with mine sweeping among the other usual requirements for a military tender. Construction of two boats is complete and extensive sea-trials are underway. A major project for the New Zealand Army is in the final stages of delivery. Like most military projects, details cannot be divulged.

What makes for a successful vessel in the military? Speed is always important, plus the very best in navigation systems, excellent maneuverability, easy reconfiguration for different mission scenarios and a soft ride in rough conditions so the operators arrive "ready to fight". Naiad has the experience to design innovative solutions to meet a large range of military requirements.



POLICE / PATROL BOATS

Naiad has worked with numerous police and enforcement agencies over the years. Many fisheries patrol vessels are in use in New Zealand, Australia and the USA - the most recent build being a 7.5m patrol vessel for Fisheries Western Australia. Naiad's ability to understand requirements and develop creative solutions has attracted interest around the world, and the enforcement sector is no exception. Designs ranging from small, fast response units right up to the ultimate 20m command and control vessel are available.

Western Australian Water Police recognized Naiad's unique blend of innovation, reliability and contracted local Fremantle builder Kirby Marine to construct a new vessel for general police duties. The vessel was custom designed specifically for the WA Police and was launched one year ago (coinciding with Australia Day). It utilizes Naiad's new high-tech stepped hull and is fitted with sophisticated electronic navigation and surveillance equipment.
