The 1027 is a wide beam landing craft with a 2m95 wide bow door, with reinforced deck and ramp designed for serious loads and commercial applications. A cabin is not included in the design but can be added to customer’s requirements.
The design has a self bailing deck and build-in fuel tanks with a capacity of approx 1,000 litres, which can be modified to compensate any specific loading characteristics depending on the type of application and usage. Her robust construction is a combination of longitudinal and transverse framing and designed in accordance with CE-category B.
The extra long and reinforced ramp enables loading and mooring under virtually all conditions and removable (timber) panels in the ramp door provide good visibility at sea. The designed maximum payload, subject to centre of gravity, height and weight distribution, as well as operating conditions, is 8,000 kg.
The hull has excellent handling characteristics even at higher speeds. Sea trials of 31 kn were achieved with twin Suzuki 225 hp outboards at 6000 rpm in unloaded conditions.
The kit has been modified by Bruce Roberts Europe bv to comply with the European codes and rules, as well as production standards. The Bruce Roberts Europe pre-cut building kit consists of extremely accurate cut parts from first class marine grade aluminium, including precision markings, the pre-forming of all parts and all profiles (extrusions) as used in the hulls construction.
The standard kit comprises all parts for the hull including fuel tank and ramp, including bow door hinges, but excludes a cabin, which can be added to customer’s requirement as an optional extra. A comprehensive set of assembly drawings and step by step instructions accompany each kit, ensuring efficient and fast assembly of this boat.
