Pulsar is a shallow drafted Cheetah Marine catamaran launched in 2006, and fully refitted during 2018.

The vessel is powered by twin Mercury 100HP four stroke outboard engines which generate a cruising speed in excess of 20 knots.  The shallow draft and twin hull design make the vessel extremely manoeuvrable even at slow survey speeds whilst providing a stable survey platform, ideal for shallow water surveys.

The vessel is road transportable on it's purpose-built trailer, which allows for simple and rapid mobilisation to and from a suitable slipway in the vicinity of the survey area.  

Bespoke over the side mounts allow for repeatable mounting of the survey transducers. The survey equipment and personnel are housed within the forward cabin area of the vessel providing a comfortable working environment.

Pulsar is permanently mobilised with a suite of high specification equipment to carry out asset inspection surveys, including a high-resolution scanning sonar, marine laser scanner and multibeam echosounder systems. The vessel can be equipped with additional geophysical survey sensors which can be tailored to project requirements.
