Developed especially for First Responders, the Minuteman series, as the name implies, enables Fire, Police or rescue services to get a fully capable inflatable boat from pack to operational state in less than 60 seconds. The Zodiac Minuteman can carry a maximum of 5 persons according to ISO6185 and the maximum payload including engine and fuels is 650 kg (1432 lbs).
The Zodiac Minuteman can be inflated from a source of compressed air and requires no assembly thanks to its Duratane PU high pressure inflatable deck. Either using paddles or a motor up to 30hp the 67kg (147 lbs) the Minuteman can be launched easily and quickly to help prevent drowning in any body of water. The unique patented Rapid Access Door and accessories make it the ideal boat for diving or SAR (Search and Rescue) missions.
The inflatable tubes are constructed of Hypalon neoprene with 3 airtight compartments on the main buoyancy tube plus an inflatable keel and 2 large flow self bailers. Reinforcements include teardrop rubbing strake, flat rubbing strakes under the keel and tubes plus a stainless steel bottom shoe on the transom. The engine transom pad is constructed of marine plywood with an aluminium engine mounting plate.
For handling there is an exterior lifeline laced on D-rings, crew grab handles, carrying handles plus bow and aft lifting points. For mooring and towing there are eye bolts on the transom plus bow and aft D-rings. For additional crew safety the Zodiac Minuteman has reflective tape all around the craft on handles and underneath the bottom.
