Product Overview

The Oceanscience Q-Boat® 1800RP is designed to offer a reliable, high specification remotely-controlled platform for the deployment of popular acoustic Doppler current profilers from any of the major instrument manufacturers. Made of high-impact UV resistant ABS, the Q-Boat 1800RP features twin high power outdrives to give a 5 m/s (16 fps) top speed with the security of two engines.

The flexible propulsion system allows the Q-Boat 1800RP to be equally effective at very low velocities (30 cm/s), providing a total solution to river discharge measurement. Ready for GPS and Oceanscience Hydrolink radio modems, the Q-Boat 1800RP is available with an optional extended range remote control system that allows control at over 750m distance.
