Designed to operating in storm
Irish pilot boat builder Safehaven Marine has capsized its latest Interceptor 48-series pilot boat in live conditions with crew inside during the rollover.

Labelling the event a “possible industry first”, Safehaven’s managing director and designer Frank Kowalski volunteered to be inside the vessel during the rollover procedure.

Strapped in with a full harness at her helm position, he commented, "It was a bit stressful when she was over at 90 degrees about to roll over and the motion past 180 during recovery was pretty violent, but it went off without a problem".

Safehaven gained valuable data from the test, with the information hopefully leading to a greater understanding of the forces involved in a rollover. This will allow future Safehaven vessels to have improved design features incorporated to maximise vessel sea-keeping and survivability when operating in extreme weather.
