LeeWay Striker

Striker is the world’s fastest research and hydrographic survey vessel. The Striker is 22 metres in length, with a top speed of approximately 55 knots. It is a high-performance craft optimized for near-to-mid shore survey and research operations.

Striker has a modern, composite hull, with a 500 nautical-mile range. It can accommodate multi-day operations with six berths for crew and scientists. Its innovations include speed, stability and integrated electronics to ensure responsiveness and flexibility in operations. Striker’s aft deck supports fast-roping and USV/UAV/UUV/AUV deployment. The work deck is configured with deck plates, multiple davits, winches, an A-frame and outriggers to support the use of boomer/sparker, USBL, MBES, SSS, magnetometer and drop camera operations.

Striker is ideal for: 
  • near-to-mid shore hydrographic surveys
  • rapid environmental response 
  • search and rescue 
  • rapid subsea data acquisition 
  • rapid offshore installation inspection
