The GEMINI WR 1060 is the largest in the Waverider Series of RIBS. This versatile, powerful hull builds on the spirit of the ‘go-anywhere’ Waveriders 780 & 880, designed and built to thrive in the harshest conditions.
The large deck space, exquisite sea-keeping and long-range capability make this GEMINI ideal for Rescue, Military, Commercial, or Law enforcement roles.
The WR 1060 comes with a large choice of engines, consoles, seating and onboard equipment. It is also available with a fully enclosed composite cabin, giving full protection from the elements.
The Gemini cabin is designed to maintain good side deck access, as well as a customisable option for bow access via a forward hatch. The design offers a separate forward cabin from the main cockpit, with additional options including galley, toilet, berths and storage facilities. The cabin also benefits from optional air conditioning, heating or demisting systems.
The Gemini cabin dashboard offers ample space for a full navigation and communication suite, and the cabin cockpit deck is strengthened for a range of seating configurations.
