| 9m Aluminium Planing Barge
Built by Commando Boats this versatile workboat operates at over 40 knots unloaded, and still planes at 25 knots with 5 tonne loads aboard. The watertight wet deck can take heavy vehicles like tractors and cranes, small trucks. She operates with eith 2 x 150 HP or 2 x 200 HP two or four stroke depending on requirements. Two boats have been built to this design, and have been highly successful operating as a general workboat/transporter around the Hauraki Gulf. The first is now used as a filmmaking/camera boat.
Unlike flatbottomed boats this boat handles and corners with precision, and the "ride" is acceptable.
The boat is simple to build, and can be tackled by any competent engineering shop.
