Sea Blade is a yacht-quality, versatile vessel built on the best-performing rough-water under body ever engineered. Featuring a hull derived from Hawaiian law enforcement boats, the Sea Blade line is engineered to perform smoothly on open ocean. The extra-deep-V and stabilizing stepped hull reduce stress on the bodies of Naval operators. With the SBX36, this same hull form is now available to recreational boaters who expect the best-possible performance coupled with the precision and luxury of a high-end yacht tender. The SBX36 is the first of the new Sea Blade series, now under construction. Island commuter, superyacht tender, family fun: the SBX36 is the new standard for opulent high-performance.
The Sea Blade hull form reduces friction and impact through rough waters. Starting at the cutaway bow, the hull first slices into the wave on initial contact. The forefoot then penetrates the wave, punching into it and cleaving it open. As the rest of the hull pushes into it, a coupled pitch-heave motion carries the bow up and through the wave.
The Sea Blade hull is the most significant improvement on the traditional high-performance deep-vee design in decades.
The Sea Blade hull is engineered by Navatek Ltd., a world-leader in designing and analyzing hull forms. Their expertise in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is used in military, industry and academic applications globally. Through a study of self-reported injuries among Navy Seal and Special Command boat operators, Navatek identified the failure points in the deep-vee hull that cause bodily harm through slamming-wave impact. Navatek re-engineered the deep-vee to be a deeper, stepped hull that better penetrates waves and reduces stress on passengers.
Hawaiian law-enforcement began operating the first of Navatek’s new hulls in 2005. Now for the first time ever, Navatek is making their unique hull form available to recreational boat users through the Sea Blade line.
