Latest innovation for the Buddy catamaran is a 12v electric powered winch option for the collection basket. The basket can be lifted and controlled from the console using a remote control. This gives the operator the advantage of not having to leave the console to winch the basket clear of the water when in transit. When in collection mode, the basket can be controlled either by using the gate mechanism, or alternatively, lifting the basket.
This upgrade further enchances the ease in which the boat can be operated with single man operation. It has been trailed by several customers with good success and is now a option on all hull configurations.
