Cheverton Workboats of Cowes, Isle of Wight, England, have been licensed by Rigships Limited to produce the well-known North series of versatile glass reinforced polyester hulls designed by naval architects Murray, Cormack Associates.
Cheverton will be the exclusive molders of the North Cape 65, North Voe 58, North Kyle 45, and the North Gael 40 hulls, decks, and superstructures.
Under the terms of the licensing agreement, there will be a close technical liaison between David Cheverton (Design) Limited and Murray, Cormack Associates on these models.
The North hulls are a closely related series of fast, moderatevee, semi-displacement designs; a generous beam provides spacious seagoing platforms for a wide variety of applications.
E x t e n s i v e model testing revealed the North hulls to be particularly efficient, clean running, dry and easy riding. Notably stable and not given to heavy or excessive rolling, their design gives them the ability to cope with the realistic displacements of fast, working craft fitted with powerful diesel machinery and carrying a practical pay load. North hulls have gained rapid acceptance with commercial operators, and are widely used for pilotage, harbor patrol, police surveillance, survey work, etc., both in the U.K.
For Cheverton this major development represents a new phase in their marketing strategy for the 80s, and brings them to the fore as specialist commercial molders. Now, the availability of range of complementary glass reinforced polyester models from Cheverton, augmented by purpose- built steel vessels up to 26 meters in length, means that commercial o p e r a t o r s requirements can be satisfied by dealing with one company—an important factor when a customer is several thousand miles away.
