The Nottingham Crusader was purpose build for the St John Ambulances water wing to carry differently abled passengers
The vessel construction is of steel in a compartmentalised style, the hull plate is 10mm and is fitted bilge keels for increased stability and the design of the hull makes it a very manoeuvrable craft.
Originally the foredeck was of an open aspect that has since been enclosed with a timber roof and vinyl sides. A toilet facility has also installed in this area.
The main saloon area is fitted with a bar and full-sized toileting area that was designed to accommodate bed bound passengers should it be required. The main saloon also has emergency exits on both sides capable of evacuating bed bound passengers. The saloon is heated by a diesel fired hot air system.
This vessel was operated commercially under a MCA Class V passenger carrying certificate of 50 (including crew)
