Hippo House Boat

The Hippo class has been in production for the past 4 years and during that time has developed from basic 6 metre LOA platforms to the 11 metre Plus versions that are available today.
Designed with African destination tourism operators in mind, these platforms not only provide a vast amount of deck space at a realistic price but also allow for delivery to remote locations by standard vehicles, as a result greatly reducing the overall on-water-costs.


LOA: 6.0m - 12.0m


BEAM: 4.9m


PASSENGER CAPACITY: 30 Up to 50 passengers


PROPOSED PROPULSION: 2 x 50 - 115 hp
Description

The Hippo class has been in production for the past 4-years and during that time has developed from basic 6m LOA platforms to the 11m + versions that available today.

Designed with African destination tourism operators in mind, these platforms not only provide a vast amount of deck space at a realistic price (half the price per m - 2 as compared with a traditional mono hull) but also allow for delivery to remote locations by standard vehicles, as a result greatly reducing the overall on-water-costs.

UPPER DECK

The upper deck would be accessed via an 800 mm wide staircase with aluminium tread plate treads.

The “external walls” will consist of ripstop canvas panels attached to the roof support structure.

LOWER DECK

The lower deck would be enclosed by 900 mm high guard rails, within which allowance would be made for 3 latched gates.
