As you can see from the video above, each Delta Daughter Craft, Patrol Craft and all other models of our Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIB) are put through a thorough in-house testing procedure upon completion. This process includes:

  • Pre-delivery inspections
  • Electrical tests
  • Navigation and communication systems tests
  • Engine tests
  • Structural overload tests (if required)

Where applicable these are conducted in accordance with Classification Societies and Certification Authorities such as the UK Maritime Coast Guard Agency (MCA).

Structural Overload Tests

We carry out extensive structural overload tests at our Delta factory for craft that are davit launched, and recovered from and to a mother ship. In tests, these Daughter Craft will be loaded well beyond the forces that they will experience in service. Our tests confirm the robust manufacture of Delta Power's exclusive range of rigid inflatable hull boats.

Delta Sea Trials

All Delta craft undergo rigorous sea trials in UK waters in order to assess performance, functionality and build quality. This ensures that a craft is suitable for its intended application, as it is tested above and beyond its requirements, before the customer even arrives to accept their boat.

Each boat produced is also tested to be sure that contractual obligations have been met and to be in line, where necessary, with international codings or classifications such as SOLAS. These may include slam, drop and inversion trials. The experience gained from sea trials and other testing is fed through into the design and production of future Delta craft.
