The VARD 7 100 is a dynamically stable design that enables safe launch and recovery of cutter boats and helicopters in Sea State 6.
The innovative combination of traditional fin stabilizers for high speed and gyro stabilization for low speed provides excellent seakeeping characteristics and the best of both operating states with low risk.
In order to provide fuel efficiency and greater range, this vessel is powered by CODELAD (combined diesel and electric) which allows for instantaneous changeover.
The design has ample space to oversee and direct boarding operations from the bridge.
