Another NEW Redbay!

This week saw more sea trials of a new Stormforce 12 fitted with twin v8 350hp Yamaha outboards! The vessel had a top speed of 45 knots. Next week she will start her journey to Svalbard where see will work as a passenger craft!

Saw her on the water yesterday afternoon. She is some good looking vessel! I love the all-black look - very imposing. What a turn of speed and really fine looking.

Well done Tom and all the Redbay team for a great looking boat.

My only concern with black gel coat it that it will turn grey over time with exposure to sunlight. But I have to agree it is a class looking boat.

Considering where it's going to be used I think the locals would be delighted to have enough sun to do that.

Team Redbay have released some more info on the new "Better Moments" Redbay that I saw being tested a few weeks back ;

Many of you may have recently become familiar with Svalbard after watching the latest TV sensation 'Fortitude' which is based on the islands.

The Svalbard Archipelago is situated mid way between continetal Norway and the Norrth Pole and well within the Atric Circle. The capital of the islands and the base for this rather amazing Redbay creation is Longyearbyen which is the home port of 'Better Moments' a new and very exciting Redbay customer.

Specialising in ski mobile tours during the long winter months Niklas and Eivind the owners of Better Moments wanted to come up with a summer activity which would engage their customer with the wilderness and wildlife of this very special place. The boat was the safest and most logical choice. It can hop between islands and guests are guaranteed to see Polar Bears playing with their cubs on the shore and whales jumping on the sea whilst in a warm and safe environment.

The new boat has several unique design features including outboard propulsion which is a first for the Stormforce 12 cabin range.

Powered by 2 x Yamaha F350 outboards the boat jumps with ease to a top speed of 42 knots and offers the customer a very exhilerating experience from the comfort of a warm and dry wheelhouse.

The boat is fully equipped with all the creature comforts and safety equipment required to carry 12 persons and 2 crew in what is a harsh and inhospitable environment.

I dunno. The open foredeck seems a retrograde step for the big Redbay. Seems to harm its ability to punch through a big sea: however well it drains. Looks well in black though.
