BLADERUNNER 45 INTERCEPTOR

Bladerunner

Offshore Thoroughbred

The Bladerunner BR45 Interceptor is a high speed offshore military craft capable of 70 knots with a capacity to carry 12 passengers and 2 crew.

With a range of 400nm, the BR45 Interceptor adapts well to applications such as a Special Forces insertion craft, or for Patrol Boat operations.

The Interceptors primary focus is Performance combined with excellent High Speed handling and Reduction in exposure to Whole Body Vibration (WBV)

Gen 3 Bladerunner Hull

The Bladerunner BR45 Interceptor incorporates the latest 3rd generation AEM hull (Air Entrapment Monohull) unique to ICE Marine, with advances in:

  • Improved rough water capability and handling
  • Reduction in repeated shock and whole body vibration
  • Improved manoeuvrability at high speed and reduced turning radius with optimised inward heel
  • Greater directional, lateral and pitch stability
  • Accessible performance, with less fatigue and input required from the Coxswain
  • Greater payload tolerance
  • Increased freeboard and dry ride

The Triple Punch

The BR45 Interceptor is powered by three 550hp inboard diesel engines driving through triple Arneson surface drives.

The platform specification can be tailored to suit the application and customer requirements, with further options for petrol or diesel, twin or triple engine configurations.
