BAD TO THE BONE

If you want the public slipway at Jumeirah Fishing Harbour all to yourself then we recommend you turn up with a Scorpion AFV/ SG Cruiser/ G810 Triton combo. Built in Ras Al Khaimah by the Streit Group, the hardcore pair are the ideal showcase for the company’s products which range from the lifestyle orientated, 3.5-metre, Gulf Cruiser catamaran, right up to the Hurricane AMPV. All are built for the harshest of conditions, so a trip down Sheikh Zayed Road and a day on the Arabian Gulf isn’t going to bother them in the slightest.

SEE IN THE DARK

FLIR produces a number of thermal night vision cameras covering sailing, cruising, fishing, maritime patrol and surveillance. Created to make nighttime navigation safer, these hand held and fixed-mount devices allow you to sail with confidence. FLIR maritime thermal imagers display the invisible heat energy from potential hazards, including floating debris, shipping lane traffic, vessels riding at anchor, dhows and abras.

ON SEA OR LAND

Dubai’s ASIS Boats builds a mixture of RIBs from superyacht tenders, to cabin cruisers, all of which benefit from the manufacturer’s military research. Currently, the Amphibious ASIS is getting a lot of attention, as it can hit 100km/h on the water and thanks to its retractable wheels, travel at 10km/h on land. Mil-style options include twin 350hp outboards and shock mitigation seating.
