ROAM Boats presents new series of submarine-carrying shadow vessels

7 January 2022• Written by Tom McGhie

ROAM Boats has revealed designs for a series of twin-hulled support vessels named ROAM Shadow. 

Available in a 24 metre and 27 metre package, the ROAM Shadow has been designed as the "ultimate toy carrier" dedicated to carrying toys, tenders and other vehicles that cannot be accommodated by the mothership.

A 124 sqm aft deck has enough space to store a submarine, multiple jet skis and a large tenders, all of which can be launched and recovered by an integrated crane. A fully enclosed indoor hangar can be found below for additional storage or can be converted into a gym or wellness centre.

Other features include a hydraulic platform with a loadbearing capacity of 1000kg that can be raised and lowered for launching items without the need for a crane, and folding bulwarks providing additional deck space as needed.

The yacht is designed purely as a "support vessel".

ROAM Boats has also teamed up with submarine specialist U-Boat Worx to bring the vessel to market, offering the ROAM Shadow for sale with a two-seat NEMO submarine in tow. The 2,500kg submarine has been designed with the superyacht market in mind with its compact footprint -  requiring less storage space than a pair of jet skis - and single lifting point.

The ROAM Shadow prioritises functionality over comfortability with a stripped back interior accommodating a crew of six only. Interior configurations and decor can be left to the discretion of its owner.

The series is built from aluminium and the propulsion package on the 24 metre model is comprised of twin Volvo Penta D13-IPS 1350hp engines for a top speed of 22 knots.
