Integrity

AMF have a 27 year proven track record of vessels for private and commercial use, with Government departments and the New Zealand Coastguard also choosing AMF for their superior quality long life product and excellent support service

Performance

High speed innovative proven hull design with system matched power plant and drive units to achieve optimum performance

Stability

The stability of the vessel is designed into the hull. In the unlikely event of a tube section deflating the vessel is still operational even in heavy sea conditions giving a built-in safety margin not offered by craft that are reliant on tubes for stability.

AMF’s high speed hull designs minimize tube contact with the water eliminating tube drag, tube bounce and reducing wear and tear

Strength and Rigidity

AMF boats are designed to withstand some of the harshest sea conditions in the World. Members of our design team have been involved in operating Coastguard and Search and Rescue vessels over many years, and along with feedback from numerous New Zealand Coastguard units AMF have incorporated features into the designs of our vessels which have been gained from this experience

Quality and Reliability

All processes throughout construction are quality controlled by in-house quality assurance systems and also surveyed throughout construction and at completion by independent survey company.

All welding personnel at AMF are certified and all staff are trained on site to work to high standards in Aluminium fabrication and construction. Our team of highly skilled engineers is focused on quality thus delivering superior products.

All electrical systems are fitted with double insulated tinned copper wiring most suited to the marine environment

Appearance

AMF has the ability to fabricate heavy gauge Aluminium in a modern and ergonomic way giving aesthetically pleasing appearance over a rugged heavy duty construction

Crew Comfort

Air conditioning (to applicable models)
Soft riding
Ergonomic layout and design features with rounded corners
Ample grab rails
Shock mitigating flooring to crew positions and shock absorbing suspension seats with full harness seat belts to 1170 model vessels
Excellent visibility

Innovative Design and Construction

All Aluminium plate used is 5083 top marine grade giving a long service life without the loss of hull performance over time due to distortion in the hull structure and plating. The high tensile marine grade of plate also gives the best anti-corrosive properties. This in conjunction with immensely strong and innovative design and construction methods, allows AMF to expect a hull service life of 25-30 years

When at rest the tube position is approximately 100mm above the water line. This allows for the hull to run efficiently (no drag), also provides a softer ride and superior turning capabilities. This feature also allows for the deck of the vessel to be raised to enable scuppers to work effectively

The AMF robust tube attachment system allows for ease of removal or replacement of tubes.

AMF use only the best quality Hypalon material for tubing, being heavy duty 866 Pennel & Flipo Orca Hypalon 1500 gsm constructed with two-way anti peel internal bulk heads, extra heavy duty 4mm thick belting, Ceraldi 3 psi pressure relief valves, Halkey Roberts inflation valves and Bostik glues.

The inflatable tubes provide reserve buoyancy in extreme sea conditions, when the boat heels in a turn and also provides the fender system.
