Coulam Wheelyboat V20


Formally launched in July 2014, the glass fibre CWV20 is designed for a wide range of activities on inshore and inland waters and is The Wheelyboat Trust’s most versatile Wheelyboat to date.  It is built for use with outboards up to 90hp and a maximum speed of 30mph to provide disabled people with exhilarating powerboating.  Designed primarily for people with mobility difficulties, it comes with a drive-from-wheelchair helm as standard.  Its huge 84 square feet of floor space can accommodate up to ten adults including six wheelchair users in comfort.  Its innovative design, ease of access on and off and large open cockpit means it also has considerable versatility as a rescue and safety craft, workboat, water taxi and general purpose leisure craft.
