The Fred 25 powerboat, see also “Accessible motorboat, www.spinalistips.se/tips-accessible-motorboat-en-1190.html adapted for people with high spinal cord injury.
The Fred 25 is an aluminum motorboat developed to suit everyone. It is 7.50 meters long and the deck is completely level. The boat is extremely stable sideways and has a bow thruster. The boat is equipped with a wide folding ramp at the bow (see photos 3 and 4), as well as anchoring points for attaching wheelchairs with straps (see photo 5).
The boat differs from a standard Fred because it has the joystick control (see photo 2), autopilot and navigator, see related tip, and a cabin in plexiglas that protects from rain and cold (see photo 1). The bow ramp is slightly extended to allow it to be less steep when boarding or deboarding (see photos 3 and 4). The boat is also equipped with an aft cover and pull-out sofa for overnight trips.
