Workstar 9.6m aluminium landing craft

The original Workstar 9.6m aluminium landing craft was modified with a wider beam and wider bow door in 2007, for a client who was refurbishing a house on an island off the West Coast of Ireland. He needed to transport small tractors and implements, a Land Rover, a Land Cruiser, building materials and, occasionally, sheep and cows out to the island.
This model is the only 9.6m aluminium landing craft we now build and the slideshow is of the latest iteration, which was very competently built by Legacy Marine, Port Elizabeth, RSA in 2017 and shipped to an hotel resort in the Maldives as a utility vessel, working between the islands.
Equipped with twin 150hp/112kW Yamaha 4-stroke outboard engines, the Workstar 9.6mLC achieved in excess of 30kts on trials with a loading of 600kg.
The Workstar 9.6m aluminium landing craft is also available with a flying bridge with an open console or a pilothouse, a passenger shelter under with ferry-style seating and with a WC and galley facilities, and inboard diesel engines, coupled to stern drives, Sea Fury drives or water jets.
This aluminium landing craft is a well proven vessel and is of a very capable size and capacity that will fulfill many work boat requirements. Our builder in South Africa is Legacy Marine who recently launched one of our smaller landing craft, the Workstar 8.4mLC, on December 7th 2017.
