‘One badass boat’



One of the main attractions at last week’s Maine Boat Show in Portland has been docked at Port Harbor Marine in South Portland this week, drawing much attention preparatory to shipment back to its native Iceland. Built by Rafnar Shipyard, the 35-foot long boat boasts a revolutionary new hull-and-keel design, patented as the “ÖK Hull.” Developed over a 20-year period in cooperation with the Icelandic Coast Guard and Icelandic Search and Rescue Association, the ÖK Hull allows for extreme stability and maneuverability at high speeds. Rafnar was at the boat show pitching the boat to local police and rescue departments. South Portland resident Rob Sellin, who docks his own vessel at Port Harbor Marine, enthused Tuesday that the guest ship is, "One bad-ass boat." (Duke Harrington photo).
