Stern ramp – small vessel/AUV launch


Stern ramp - small vessel/AUV launch

The stern ramp has the ability to tilt and extend to the waters surface enabling positive control to launch and recover small boats / equipment / AUV's etc from the back deck of Leeway Odyssey into the ocean.

Optionally, the main deck can be fitted with (In lieu of standard deck configuration) the Controlled Hydraulic Entry A-Frame Technology (CHEAT) System designed by LeeWay Marine to enable sensitive payloads (6000lbs) to be lowered to the water interface using a dynamic A-Frame and hydraulic ramp control system. The system reduces risk to payloads and improves LAR in difficult sea conditions. The system is modular and can be removed within 1 hour if clients require an open deck configuration.
