Introducing Cheetah Marine’s Next Generation ‘Walk-Around Cabin’ Workboat

Combining the practicality of a workboat with all the luxury trappings of a yacht, the Cheetah Marine ‘Walk-Around Cabin’ is the latest addition to the Cheetah Marine Fleet. Perfect for family outings, corporate events or day’s out with friends, this premium space is the perfect addition for those wanting to entertain.  

Fluid Water Taxi (operated by Urban Truant) has customised their ‘Walk-Around Cabin’ for their recently launched company that operates an on-demand water taxi service on the south coast. The cabin has a wealth of stand-out features creating a fully bespoke internal cab with generous seating for 12 passengers or guests, alongside a customised hull and branded cab.

Following the success of their first launch, Fluid Water Taxi has commissioned a fleet of Cheetah Marine catamarans to operate across a variety of destinations. These agile, stable craft are the ideal choice for transporting passengers around the picturesque shores of the Solent and beyond.

The fleet of newly customised Cheetah Marine workboats also meets the Maritime and Coastguard Agency’s (MCA) strict MGN 280 code for small boats (under 25 metres) operating commercially, with the primary aim to ensure the highest standards of safety and protection are met for all on-board. This includes a watertight weather deck, reinforced hull, robust guardrails and polarised windows, offering year-round peace of mind for passengers and crew.

“Our latest Walk-Around Cabin represents a ground-breaking fusion of workboat practicality and yacht-like luxury, designed to cater to a wide range of activities, from family outings to corporate events,” says Sean Strevens, Senior Partner at Cheetah Marine.

The Cheetah Marine Walk-Around Cabin has been finished using premium materials to create an ambiance of elegance and durability. From the polished teak flooring to the refined stainless-steel fixtures, every detail has been crafted to perfection.

Beyond its high-end finishes and spacious seating, the Walk-Around Cabin is a powerhouse of performance. Built with the latest in marine technology, it promises smooth sailing, even in challenging conditions. The walk-around design also allows for easy movement around the deck, perfect for fishing, cruising or simply taking in the breath-taking views. 

“With the launch of the Fluid Water Taxi service, we’re proud to see our customised Walk-Around Cabins in action.” Sean continues, “These vessels, with their bespoke internal cab and branded hull, offer unmatched stability and performance, making them ideal for navigating the renowned waters of the Solent and beyond.”

Bringing 30 years boat making experience to the table, Cheetah Marine have reimagined a vessel that embodies the perfect blend of luxury, performance, and functionality. Whether you’re hosting a lavish gathering or embarking on an adventurous trip, the Cheetah Marine Walk-Around Cabin is designed to meet your every need.
