Nauti-Craft celebrates a new deal signed with long-term partner and German based vessel operator, designer and boat building group, Offcon GmbH and Wallaby Boats GmbH.
Nauti-Craft’s game-changing technology was put to the test in rough seas at Dunsborough in the south of Western Australia in 2015.
Soon after this Wallaby Boats GmbH’s Harald Hübner and Steffen Staudenmaier took a test ride on Nauti-Craft’s demonstrator “2 Play”.One test was all it took!
Earlier this week, Nauti-Craft welcomed City of Busselton Mayor Grant Henley on board to test the craft’s suspension technology first-hand.
Mayor Henley advised “This is an exciting time for Nauti-craft and it’s fantastic to see the local Dunsborough business persist and thrive in what has been a difficult environment during COVID. Securing international exposure is a major achievement and some would say, a game changer. Congratulations to all those involved in the company’s success.”
Nauti-Craft’s 8.5m boat punched headlong into 1.2m choppy waves at over 30 knots effortlessly.
Wallaby Boats GmbH will be the first original equipment manufacturer globally to produce commercial boats using the Nauti-Craft suspension system with exclusive rights to the Nauti-Craft patent.
The deal accelerates production of the first Wallaby boats and ensures further headway is made with the planned production of a full range of small commercial craft.
These include high performance daughter craft, crew transfer vessel, pilot boats and small workboats.
The Wallaby-18 is being produced in Germany and composite parts produced for the Wallaby-16 and the Wallaby-14 by Tuco Marine from Fåborg in Denmark.
And in further exciting news, Nauti-Craft is working full throttle to release its first leisure boats this year. A courageous move, which will showcase to the local community the world’s first luxury suspension boats as well as revolutionise the international recreational boating industry.
