K11 RS148 Mjøsvekteren på Redningsselskapets stand.

Redningsselskapet stiller ut vår "K11" design for tredje gang på Sjøen for Alle.

Båten har fått to nye 400 hk motorer på hekken og det faste mannskapet kan fortelle at man nå har en toppfart på 52 knop om det skulle trenges. Den lette karbonfibersandwich båten har derved forbedret sin gamle rekord og er fremdeles suverent den raskeste båten i Redningsselskapets flåte.

I testing i ytre Oslofjord har man kjørt i sjø med en fart på 44 knop uten dramatikk. K11 konstruksjonen demonstrerer derved sine gode egenskaper med twin motorinstallasjon. -Og sitt slektskap med Norsafe sine velrenommerte "Munin" modeller som er i tjeneste som både offshore Datterfartøy, Search and Rescue, Politi og Marine fartøy.

08.03.2016 Pressemelding:
Norsk lystbåthistorie på Sjøen for alle

Norsk Maritimt Museum gir publikum på årets båtmesse i Lillestrøm et historisk tilbakeblikk som viser utviklingen av norske lystbåter, konstruktørene, båtbyggerne og seil- og motorbåtene gjennom de siste 100 årene.

En av de mest kjente norske seilbåtene fra etterkrigstiden, OL-båten "Soling", er utstilt på årets Sjøen for alle i messehallen på Lillestrøm. Båten er konstruert av en av våre mest kjente båtdesignere, Jan Herman Linge. Sammen med båten får publikum se hele rekken av berømte norske båtkonstruktører og båter, presentert i tekst, bilder og på video.
Utstillingen er blitt til gjennom et samarbeide mellom Johan Ankers Fond, en stiftelse i Norsk Maritimt Museum og Norsk Soling Klubb. Båtkonstruktøren Birger Kullmann, styreleder i Johan Ankers Fond, har hatt hovedansvaret for den lille spesialutstillingen som foruten Solingen også består av video fra regattaen "Europauken 2014" der 100 klassiske båter fra inn- og utland deltok i Sandefjord, Son og Oslo..  (Henrich Nissen-Lie, 8.mars 2016)

Norwegian Design Council Award 2010:

FF 1200/FF 1200S - Free-fall lifeboat

The market for the newly developed FF1200 and FF1200S is offshore platforms and ships. Free-fall lifeboats are a very effective and safe method of evacuating a platform.
FF1200 and FF1200S are the only boats that have been developed to satisfy and exceed the new, stricter requirements for free-fall lifeboats. It is an advanced rescue boat that is among the best in the world in its industry.

Jury`s verdict

The FF1200 and FF1200S represent a major advancement of free-fall lifeboats. It is the largest free-fall lifeboat ever produced and has the world record for lifeboats with a free fall of 55 meters. The solution provides a clear signal that a design process is about much more than just what is on the outside. In spite of all the restrictions and requirements, the design has taken a major step forward, benefitting the user greatly.

As well as fast evacuation, the comfort of users has been extraordinarily well provided for. New rear-facing seats, more room for bigger passengers and a better placement of the seats makes it easier to fill the boat. The boats new form reduces the strain for the passengers when the boat hits the water. The boat’s shape gives an impression of a solid and robust structure, which evokes confidence. We can see here that if the relationship between product and user remains at a high level and new solutions are found, we achieve successful, innovative design.

preliminary render

..and we have a new world record for freefall lifeboats..

..55 meter drop height - 100% load....

On the 3rd of july 2009 Umoe Schat-Harding set an almost unheard of record with its FF1200 Freefall Lifeboat.
Having completed a series of demanding tests, the last ones with 100% load at 42meters on the 1st of july, the Ugland "Uglen" craneship hoisted the FF1200 to the very height limit. And on a beatiful sunny day at 32 degrees (celsius) a new world record was set at Rosendal in the Hardangerfjord, Norway.

We are also pleased to have beaten our own previous world record design!

Hats off to all at Umoe Schat-Harding for a job well done!. See www.schat-harding.com for more info. Click here for photos and video.

Happy sailing, Oslo
They say the climate changes are imminent, but at present there is not much sign of it in Scandinavia..

But hey, we do at least have clients who know how to name their yachts to compensate..
