About us

Vector ProBoat specializes in the construction of aluminium, extremely seaworthy, high-performance craft, for professional or recreational use. We offer a unique combination of rugged and durable workboat finish on an agile deep-V hull for outstanding performance and handling.

If you are looking for a fast, robust and durable powerboat – you are in the right place.

Vision

To market boats with extreme requirements on quality, endurance and low maintenance cost, towards the recreational as well as the professional user.

Rough sea capabilities above normal will ensure safe riding in weather conditions where most boats stay in the docks.

An ergonomically designed helms position should enable safe boat handling and communicate the thrill of using the boats capabilities to its maximum.

The Vector models will unite the extreme rough sea capabilities of a high performance craft with professional grade installations and finish to a powerboat that demands a minimum of time and money in maintenance.

Design

Vector boats are designed by Petter Håkanson, one of Sweden’s most renowned designers of fast aluminium boats for professional use.

Petter’s designs have had national and international success mainly through Docksta Shipyards export of patrol and combat boats. Experience and expertise in fast water jet propulsion crafts has made Petter to an authority in the industry.

Vector design puts the focus on 3 basic properties: Rough sea capabilities, Helm environment and Boat speed.

Preferably the boats should be built in aluminium. Aluminium is maintenance free, strong and light weight.

Boat speed

Vector boats are designed for speeds in excess of 50 knots. But what is more interesting is the ability to maintain a high cruising speed also in adverse weather conditions.

Helm environment

Vector design prioritizes the helms position, sitting or standing the working environment is key to experience the boat capabilities. Designed to offer easy access to controls, body support and generous panels for fitting of navigation equipment.

The optional forward cabin is fitted with a full length V-berth for overnight trips, or as a large dry stowage for day trips.


Rough sea capabilities

We aim to build the best fast transport boats there is, and the key is in our hull design. A comparatively narrow, deep V hull will give its crew a smoother ride. Our Vector 100 hull is long and sleek with a 24 degree deadrise.

A full bodied bow provides extra displacement and safety in rough conditions. The topsides are designed to deflect sea spray and keep the crew dry.
