With fully customisable load spaces the Chameleon range can be highly effective in many commercial roles from patrol to parcel delivery, service and support to VIP hosting and technical and scientific to limousine. The craft provide a much higher level of comfort and protection than has hitherto been the case in boats of this size. Crews can now remain fresher and more effective for much longer, and passengers can enjoy more comfort and style.
Chameleon Craft in a multi service environment have the ability to meet many roles from a common, easy to support platform. Able to carry sizable loads, Chameleon has full head height, full length, enclosed and generous load spaces which provide all personnel, loads and equipment with full protection from the elements. Further under-deck and wet locker storage spaces allow for storage of additional gear to keep the external walk round decks clutter free.
Chameleon Craft have been designed to make a bold statement in terms of image and to lend themselves to company, team and sponsor branding. Systems remain simple and cost effective to operate, the aim being to help provide owners with a reliable, all-round advantage.
Chameleon Craft are also aimed at bringing a new, stylish dimension to the marine leisure and super yacht sectors with roles including tender, camper van and hosting.
By clicking on the thumbnails, a few of Chameleon's many roles are revealed.
Emergency Services, Military, Patrol and Rescue
Good sea keeping attributes combined with an enclosed, comfortable load/passenger space means crew stay effective for longer.
From armed response and reconnaissance to surveillance, safety boat and many more, the CC10's standard platform is designed to be easily customised into the client's required role.
Troops, casualties and equipment can easily be accommodated in the load space allowing the crew to get on with the business of operating the boat. Options for safe casualty extraction from the water, sea water pickup and pumping for fire and rescue are available.
Chameleon's style brings a presence to, and makes a strong statement in, any theatre of operations.
Water Taxi/Crew Transfer
CC10m is flexible in operation and configuration. The craft is easy to board and gives a feeling of security once onboard. CC10m's inherent stability makes for a comfortable transit even for those not used to being on the water.
For niche shuttle services or VIP water taxi, CC10m can be customised to any level of trim and livery presenting a strong brand image.
As a crew transfer vessel, CC10m is a rugged and stable platform with plenty of space to accommodate crew and their gear. With the walk-around deck and multiple boarding points, crew safety is maximised whether alongside another vessel, fixed dock, rig platform or wind turbine.
As a service boat, the scenarios are many fold. From Wind Farm service support to Marina and Harbour Operations, Fish Farm and Resort Management to Scientific, Technical and Super Yacht Servicing, CC10m can be fitted out to meet all number of roles.
Here on the water, CC10m is essentially the equivalent of a roadside breakdown assistance van. With a maximum load of 1200kg, there is more than enough allowance for tools, servicing equipment and spare parts.
With either 1 or 2 of the optional sliding side doors installed, accessing and transferring equipment is easy and safe.
Race Pin Boat/Chase Boat
With ample stowage for race marshalling props and recording equipment, room for optional onboard facilities such as toilet and cool storage, Pin Boat crews can operate at peak efficiency for a full day, protected from the elements but always accessible to the racing. The full walk-around deck ensures complete effectiveness in the role and the distinctive lines of CC10 means that it is immediately identifiable to competitors.
During races, the boat can be on call in the event of a competitor being injured, providing a safe covered environment to assess and administer first aid. With the day's competition over, the versatility of CC10m means it can switch roles to VIP or crew transfer in no time at all.
As a chase boat, support to the race boat can be offered in many ways. Carrying spare kit, acting as weather station, directing tactical operations, analysing video or transferring crew and supplies , the list goes on. All this provided from one standard platform, providing a competitive edge over other teams.
In the open version, CC10m is ideal for personal or exclusive resort dive boat. Briefing for the day's dive can be carried out in comfort and the under the cover of the semi-enclosed load space which also provides for relaxation when waiting for conditions to improve.
With bottle racks flanking the seating areas there is also ample storage space for equipment on deck, under seat and also in the wet locker aft which also provides a separate place to hang gear once washed using the optional deck shower.
In addition, cool storage accessed from the helm area by the crew, houses the days food and refreshments.
For days when diving conditions are not favourable the CC10m can switch to operate in other various support and recreational roles.
Refuse & Recycle
With a style in keeping with exclusive developments, CC10m brings a new dimension to refuse collection and recycling.
Designed to be operated by 2 Crew, the boat can dock and retrieve refuse quickly and efficiently. The load space can be divided into 'PODs' to keep different types of refuse separate ready for recycling or alternatively be left as one large open space which can be loaded with bagged waste to be dealt with back at base. With an optional hinged roof panel, full waste storage bins can be craned out of the load space by a dockside davit.
Whatever the specific role, the load space is hard wearing and drained in order that it can be jet washed at the end of the day.
The original inspiration for the CC10m, the delivery van mode is the purest of its forms transferring the concept straight from the road to the water. As on land, CC10m can deliver all manner of loads or goods to remote locations more effectively accessible by water.
Parcel delivery, secure money transfer, refrigerated goods, livestock, spare parts for machinery, fuel, supplies can all be catered for.
Locking points/rails for lashing down loads can be specified and laid out to suit specific needs. Custom shelves and storage boxes can also easily be installed to ensure best use is made of the generous space and 1200kg max carrying load. The 'Open' variant of CC10m can also be utilised as a Delivery van.
Limousine/Super Yacht Tender
Fitted out with a high spec VIP Jet style interior, CC10m makes for the ideal private limousine. Guests can travel from their Island retreat to the mainland in Air-Conditioned luxurious comfort. With Chameleon, casinos or island hotel chains can offer their guests smooth but swift transfers with the appropriate level of quality and comfort.
As a tender, CC10m is the ideal addition to a super yacht support fleet. From owner, guest and crew transfer to re-stocking mother ship supplies whilst at anchor, the layout of this boat offers a flexible platform for all occasions. Island exploration, water sports and snorkelling trips are all enhanced by using the CC10m versatile platform.
Super Yacht tenders used to be restricted by height of the tender garage. Today, with explorer style yachts and the popularity of 'shadow support vessels' growing, CC10m has now become a feasible option when specifying a tender. Integrated lifting points can be specified as an option.
Film and TV
In the Camper Van role, our craft brings a new dimension to the leisure sector. Taking inspiration from the iconic VW Camper, CC10m can be fitted out for family weekends away along the coast, avoiding traffic jams, or hopping accross The Channel.
CC10m's roof options provide for a traditional 'pop-up' and racks for surf boards. There is space in the wetlocker area for bikes.
