SAFETY & COMPLIANCE
For the road the SeaHorse is certified under the requirements for an M3 coach, which includes full roll cage, seats with seat belts and space for passengers with reduced mobility. Disabled lifts can also be added.
For the water the machines are certified under the terms of Marine Safety Notice (MSN) 1823 “Safety Code. These high standards are acceptable throughout the world.
The most important accreditation is one of safety. Many features such as ABS breaking, rollover bars to protect passengers, The Hull is fully compartmentalised with 6 compartments with an additional 16 foam filled sections within its GRP structure giving superior survivability on the water. It is a decked vessel meaning it is not reliant on its freeboard to float, you can effectively open the passenger door when on the water!
