Atlas Elektronik UK's design of OTB features a 13 person workspace with PC workstations and shock mitigation seating. Other features include an area for briefing that has a range of facilities such as a large screen for displaying charts and real-time navigational data. There’s also an area set aside for recreational use. As with all other boats in the SEA Class range the OTBs are also fitted out with an IMO approved navigation suite that is fully compatible with the RN surface fleet.

Berths, wet room and heads as well as a comprehensive galley provide a step-change in operational range and capability over the RNs existing craft. The modular design and use of common components across the range reduces the required spares holding, training requirements and through-life costs.

15m Dive Training & Support Boats are the next variant of the modular SEA Class boats to be completed at AEUKs Horizon production facility.

With a reputation for innovation, ATLAS ELEKTRONIK UK (AEUK) has designed the SEA Class boats to be easily reconfigured providing the flexibility to change the role of the craft, allowing it to perform a wide variety of tasks. The twin-hull design gives stability while providing the ability to carry heavy payloads at speed. A twin-engine and water-jet combination offers performance while allowing the boats to be operated in shallow waters.
