Indian Navy chose Ullman Seats as new standard
Solas Marine in Sri Lanka has been awarded a contract for 80 FICs, Fast Interception Craft, for the Indian Navy, with an option for 80 more boats.
The Albert Nazarov designed FRC has been extremely well received by the Navy and the production rate is now increasing to up to 3 boats per month.
Advanced armament and surveillance equipment, as well as gear for hostile boarding in adverse conditions, in combination with good sea keeping and speed capacity exceeding the spec,
makes this a most excellent tool for anti-terrorist operations, says project leader Cdr Ret S K Raghav after acceptance tests completed.
After thorough investigation and comparative testing of suspension seats, the Ullman Patrol seats were chosen as the new standard.
Performance is crucial! Our most valuable assets are our highly skilled crews.
We need to keep them safe and fit-for-fight even in the worst sea conditions.
We also require corrosion free, maintenance free, fail-safe seats that do not bottom out.
We found that Ullman Seats are the optimal solution.
Hull……….Vacuum infused composite
Drive Lines……….2 x 885 hp & water jets
Speed……….up to 50 kts
Seats……….4 Ullman Patrol

G.I. Joe – Retaliation.
Bruce Willis and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, stars of G.I. Joe 2, mastered the Giant Airboats in this year’s first blockbuster from Hollywood.
GI Joe Retaliation sold a total of $132 Million over Easter holiday.
The Giant Airboat with 7-foot fans and double V8 engines features stabilized 50-cal machine gun and Ullman Suspension seating using the Ullman Daytona Bucket seat and 6 staggered Ullman Biscaya seats for the G.I. Joes.
Set Designer Jack Blanchard and Art Director Luke Freeborn choose the Ullman Seats for their military looks and unmatched performance, making the airboat stand out from the screen in the intense 3D experience.
Go see the movie. It is guaranteed to blow you away.

Colombian Coast Guard choose Eduardoño Boats
Ullman Dynamics supplies 120 Atlantic Suspension Seats for 24 new 38′ Interceptor Boats built by Eduardoño for the war against drug runners.
To protect crews from injury the Colombian Navy Coast Guard has decided to use the most efficient suspension seats available. “This way we can drive faster, maneuver with more control, reduce fatigue and of course minimize the risks of injuries.”
Powered by 3 x 250hp Yamaha outboards, the vessel known as “Tipo B” is a 38-foot open interceptor built for interdiction and patrol. The modified V-hull gives excellent maneuverability, shallow draft, quick reaction, long range and high speed.
It is designed to operate in high seas in the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean with the potential to enter into the bays and vast rivers of Colombia. “Tipo B” has 5 Ullman Atlantic Seats for the crew and can carry 12 additional passengers.
The Ullman Atlantic is a hybrid seat allowing both high-comfort, reclined sitting and also the more active straddling position when it gets rough. The final spec of the “Tipo B” has been done in cooperation between Eduardoño, Ullman Dynamics and the Colombian CG optimizing consoles and seats for the specific tasks of the vessel.
The first container with 32 seats has already been shipped to Colombia, and another 88 seats are on their way.

The Combat Boat 90 from DockstaVarvet in Sweden, now in its 22 year of service, is now subject to an upgrade of drivelines and mission critical systems.
Upgrades include Navionics, CAN Bus standard and Ullman suspension Seating. The bridge has been slightly altered in order to fit the Ullman Arctic Seats, which were originally designed for the CB90.
With several hundreds CB 90s and several thousand Ullmans Seats sold world wide it is now our pleasure to show the combination, fit for higher speeds and higher seas.

The Ullman Atlantic Crew Seat is a multi posture seat, designed to protect the crew and passengers of high performance craft from injury. The seating geometry is designed to give passengers the optimal body postures for handling both static and dynamic loads.
The Ullman Daytona Crew Seat is a cost effective solution, providing State-of-the-Art shock mitigation and impact protection.
It is designed to be used in limited spaces on high-speed boats. The Daytona is a monocoque FRP bucket seat with vinyl upholstery. It is ergonomically designed to follow the shape of the body and put the user in the best sitting posture possible for comfort and impact protection.
Protect your vessel and crew
DaccR is a new “portable” accelerometer & data-logger for impact exposure on high-speed platforms.
The Dyena Acceleration Recorder – DaccR, is very easy to use and presents the acceleration data graphically, illustrating peak impact values and GPS tracking in Google Earth.
DAccR records and stores acute impacts and cumulative exposure over time. You can thus know what your boats crews are exposed to at all times.

The Choice of Champions
David Beckham and young football star Jade Bailey speeding a 70 knot boat carrying the torch with the Olympic flame down the river Thames on the final leg to the Olympia Stadium.
The Olympic flame arrived from Athens to the UK on May 17 and has since travelled across the British Empire. During the final stretch former English football captain David Beckham operated the 70 knot vessel to safely deliver the flame carried by the rising football star 16 years old Jade Bailey to the Olympia Stadium.
¨The Bladerunner is a “stabilized, air entrapment monohull”, designed by world leading naval architect Lorne Campbell, developed and built by British yard Ice Marine. It was chosen, not primarily for its extreme and futuristic design, but more important for its extremely smooth ride in any sea conditions.
Failure was not an option
To further enhance the safety aspects – failure was not an option – the Bladerunner was equipped with Ullman suspension seats. This to make sure that even in case of significant waves the procedure would be successful in parading the flame with dignity on its last leg to the Olympia Stadium.
A special seat was built by Ullman Dynamics to safely support the torch-bearer in her near standing position up in the bow of the boat, without anything to hold on to during the transit, except for the torch.
Large colored spotlights on the stern lit up the smoke ejecting from the “jet engines”. Spray was created by a water intake device on the stern and spraying water to the sides harder with increasing speed. The spray device reduced top speed of the boat from 72 to 42 knots despite the two 300 engines.
David Beckham actually drove the boat himself most of the way even though he had never sat foot on a speed boat like this before training for three days before the event. During the last stretch in the canal the builder and former world champion boat racer Jeremy Watts had control and finally docked.
The river Thames can be challenging to navigate with a small speed boat due to large waves cased by current against wind or wake from other vessels. Hence the Bladerunner comes equipped with Ullman Suspension seats, the same seats that are the standard on the London Metropolitan Police boats and on the Royal Marines Offshore Raiding Craft, both used in fair numbers for the security during the games. Even the Bladerunner’s Aerodynamics Steering Console was designed by Swedish M.D. and scientist Dr. Johan Ullman.
This last part of delivering the flame to the Olympic Stadium required months of planning and rigorous security. In the end this action scene, watched by more than 900 million people world-wide, went 100% according to plan as boat and crew fulfilled the mission with dignity.
