All new Sirocco

Vortex Sirocco

 

2 seat (225kg payload) leisure craft.

The new craft is manufactured using the same high tech composite construction used in our UK, European and World Championship winning race craft, and the same attention to detail during construction as our racing craft. 

Reasons to consider buying the new Vortex Sirocco:-

·         Very safe 2 adult seat craft or 1 adult and 2 children.

·         High quality composite construction, light but extremely strong and durable

·         225kg payload, much more than other craft in its class, (this is due to our use of light weight/high strength composites)

·         High pressure loop / segment skirt, giving the stability of a high pressure loop skirt with the obstacle clearance and low drag of a segmented skirt.

·         22lt fuel tank, enough for 2 hours of very hard driving or 4+ hours on a leisurely cruise.

·         Full instrumentation inc, tachometer, battery condition, fuel gauge, oil pressure warning and so you know when to service the craft, an hour meter is fitted

·         Waterproof 12v power socket and USB sockets are provided at the front of the craft

·         Heavy duty battery, so that accessories can be run without the need to have the engine running

·         Full safety equipment including operational lanyards and fire extinguisher

·         Having a separate lift system does mean that once you are up and cruising you can reduce the thrust throttle and just glide along!!

 ·         All craft are supplied with a limited warranty       

Please note, exact specification may change with development, detailed spec will be given at time of ordering craft.
