Trident Boats is relatively young, but already successful and very promising boat builder from St. Petersburg, Russia. During past years Trident has significantly expanded their project portfolio with various patrol, research, and SAR vessels and gained a reputation as a high-quality boat builder not only in Russia, but around CIS countries and in Scandinavia.
One of the latest and most remarkable works by Trident Boats is 100% unsinkable self-righting Zmey 850 RS-class aluminum vessel with twin Alamarin-Jet AJ 245 propulsion system. The boat has been designed and built by Trident team from scratch, according to RS- class rules and under supervision of Russian Maritime Register of shipping, in tight cooperation with Alamarin-Jet. Depending on the weight, FRB 850 is aimed to rescue and carry on board up to 15 people with max speeds over 40 knots.
