Striker pilot boats are designed and
developed specifically for pilot service. The
hull shape evolved from successful Striker
aluminum fishing yachts, famous for their
outstanding sea worthiness record in
adverse sea conditions.
The current design features of the Striker
pilot vessels reflect the cumulative
experience gained through feed back from
different pilots operating these vessels
around the world.
Strikers are all weather pilot boats, easy to
control and to handle in close quarters while
outstanding in its seaworthiness in any kind
of sea condition. It is a rugged work boat,
economical to operate and requires minimal
maintenance by virtue of its corrosion free
marine aluminum construction.
Ultra safe at transfers and very comfortable
while waiting for transfers or boardings in
rough seas thanks to the unique hull design.
A design that will amaze the most experienced
captains, a design that rarely sips the sea and
a hull design that
can handle a lot of abuse and ask for more.
Striker 54, Accommodations for 12 crew
members at sea and 30 at port. Very large
