Proluxe P638 FRB MED/Transport Canada and US Coast Guard approvals
The Proluxe 638 was an obvious choice to build as a SOLAS rescue boat and have it approved as compliant with the Large yacht Code and the Marine Equipment Directive (MED). Variants of the P638 had already been approved as a Fast Rescue Boat for commercial shipping and for Naval vessels.
The GRP hull and deck is a proven product with superb seakeeping capabilities and the size of the craft makes it an ideal people carrier that provides a soft dry ride. The diesel engine is positioned amidships, just aft of the steering console and this gives a perfect balance to the boat when driving in challenging seas. Available in a waterjet or sterndrive version, the 6 cylinder diesel provides plenty of power for most passenger loads and ship to shore shuttling.
The aft seating on the engine cover coupled with the aft bench seat makes a congenial Owner and guest seating area when required. The forward area provides plenty or room for cargo or water sports equipment. The P638 can be fitted with a host of optional extras such as teak decks, polished s/s metalwork and marine leather upholstery. Other useful features such as the 12v auto inflate system for keeping the inflatable buoyancy tubes topped up are also available.
