The partnership between Western Australian designer Mark Ellis and New South Wales builder Britton Marine is one that can be well described as a perfect fit. Mark Ellis is renowned as the designer of some of the best hull forms in the world while Britton Maritime, a specialist builder of tactical, security response and boarding vessels, is a leading integrator of such designs, providing not only a high quality of build but also being able to incorporate their own expertise for vital vessel components such as command consoles and seating.
Britton Maritime Systems has delivered fast response craft for the New South Wales police, which perfectly encapsulated the success of the designer-builder partnership. The all-aluminium construction vessels feature a sea-kindly and extraordinary swift Mark Ellis designed hull capable of reaching a fully-loaded speed of 50 knots powered by twin Mercury Verado four-stroke outboards outputting 205kW each. Designed for harbour security and harbour response operations, the Britton built command console, lumber support seats and spring-loaded crew seats ensure optimal crew performance and handling while their solid mount A-frame located at the stern provides an elevated platform for mounting electronics.
