This Wave Patroller is a fast twin engined monohull landing craft design with a shallow draft making her ideal for use on rivers and inland waterways. ‘Dart’ was a sister vessel to ‘Flash’ (ALN 023) supplied to the London Fire & Civil defence Authority for operations on the River Thames. Internally she is fitted with seating for nine and externally she has fire monitors and a deck manifold fed by a separate diesel driven fire pump. She has keel protection to allow her to beach and a bow ramp for easy access.
