Our Aluminium Boats
Robust and durable
We operate and produce high quality boats and offer a comprehensive solution with a competitive advantage in terms of consistency, performance and innovation. Regardless of individual requirements or design Ophardt Maritim develop, render, optimise and produce aluminium boats in series. Our extensive cooperation with teams of designers and naval architects has led to the completion of numerous innovative products.
For the OPH/969/D hull, a deep V shape has been given an extreme deadrise, which allows extended and comfortable trips and enables a smooth ride, even with stronger winds and waves. The result is perfect performance, even in turbulent waters at speeds well above 60 knots. The boat has a d-foam fender coated with polyurethane. This model was tested and displayed at the High Speed Boat Operations (HSBO) forum, hosted in Gothenburg, Sweden in the first week of June 2018 and during Seawork International in Southampton.
At the end of the size scale, the 10m (OPH/1088/D) and 12m (OPH/1155/R and OPH/1155/D) models developed by Norson Design and Ophardt Maritim include options for both inboard and outboard engines, and are capable of attaining speeds of 70knots max. All RIBs in the series can be customized to suit specific end user requirements / missions, and are very much aimed at a professional user base, with intended applications varying from special operations to general patrol duties.
The OPH/707/R (where R denotes ‚RIB’) - an example of the 7m model from the OPH series - is currently being produced for the German water police.
Straightforward, light and manoeuverable – these are characteristics of the OPH/707/R. This RIB combines security, stability, and user friendliness and is a real allrounder. It was developed as a versatile boat for high speeds with perfect handling in all types of water. The hull was designed for high speed boating in a cooperation between Andrew Norton Lea from Norson Design Works and Ophardt Maritim CEO Michael Mathias, who knows about the professional customers needs.
First Responder is a multi-functional rescue boat used to fight fires thanks to its integrated fire-extinguishing devices. The boat is built on the OPH (Ophardt Presicion Hull) hull 8mm strength, sea water resistant aluminium. The components of the modular platform are constructed and calculated using CAD technology and are produced and tested to the highest standards. Security, excellent handling characteristics and durability are guaranteed.
The troop transporter provides speed and is easy to manoeuvre like an inceptor but it has a greater loading capacity. A complete troop plus their equipment can be transported. The boat is available in various sizes ranging from 6 – 14 meters with a capacity for 6 – 28 people. The Troop Transporter is also based on the OPH Hull.
