Developed from the Panther 22 model, the Arctic 23 has an extended hull for greater carrying capacity. This enables bigger crew and equipment for greater performance in operating oil spill recovery.

The material used in our boats is HMWPE, High Molecular Weight Polyethylene, which is a durable polymer. The abrasion resistance of this material is superior and is suited for rough use and also for oil spill recovery.

The seakeeping characteristics of our boats resemble the characteristics of the RIB boat. The boat interior is spacious
thanks to D-shaped fender. Unlike the RIB boat, the pontoons of the RBB (Rigid Buoyancy Boat) boat never loosen up or flatten, making the boat safe and resilient. The RBB boat has a very low life-cycle cost compared to other boat types due to the reduced need for repair and overhaul.
