Kewatec Patrol 1560
The Kewatec Patrol 1560 is a fast patrol boat that does not fear the weather, cold or otherwise. The boat’s two modern marine diesel engines and two water jet propulsion units allow it to reach a top speed of 35 knots under good conditions. A very fast emergency stop is also possible. Under slow speeds in harbor the computer-controlled joystick controller makes the Patrol 1560 incredibly easy to handle. This is convenient when you need high accuracy from the helmsman.
The Kewatec Patrol 1560 is designed for a use where no sleeping places are needed. More so the boat has space for its three-man crew in a large wheelhouse with three suspended seats, a comprehensive navigation and communication system with latest technology, and a lot of free working space. When it is time for the lunch or coffee, there is room for the crew at the cabin table. The ship’s pantry and a spacious toilet are also located there.
All the facilities have good ventilation and efficient heating. The same applies to the machine room and separated tank space, both while driving and when the engines are off. Being anchored or docked without shore power, an efficient but quiet diesel generator takes care of the power requirement of a large electrical system over the capacity of large batteries. Separate room thermostats ensure that both the waste heat of the engine and the circulating water heated by the diesel-powered heater keeps all spaces warm and provide hot water where it is needed.
The machine room, wheelhouse and cabin have mechanical ventilation while driving. In an emergency, all engines and ventilation hatches can be turned down and shut off with a single button from the wheelhouse.
