The Center Console.

Building on Protector Boat's world-renowned success of center console RIBs, this new CHASE 38 model is designed with a triple-wide and more ergonomic console to house large modern chart plotters and electronics.

Form, fit and function is key to this design and features include shock mitigating adaptable bolster seats for comfort at sea, an even larger canvas T-top frame structure for protection and a gull-wing style console design that effortlessly hinges to allow access to the fresh-water sink and head below.

Cockpit seating
for 8-10 guests.

The spacious and open-deck design is ideal for lounging with family or heading out on an expedition with a small party of friends.

Precision-engineered hull construction.

Trusted by Search and Rescue.

The precision-engineered hull construction of each Protector model fills the Captain with confidence to go anywhere in safety and comfort. Each hull is solid hand-laid fiberglass using 24-ounce roven woving layers, building up until the hull is three-quarters-of-an-inch thick on the sides and one-and-a-half-inches thick at the keel.

This approach uses proven and reliable construction techniques, and Protector has had no hull failures since its first hull was produced in 1999. The rugged hull is surrounded by an inflatable Hypalon collar with seven baffled air chambers, this provides a suspension like effect, absorbing energy and reducing the feel of pounding into the waves.
