“I want to work with the best, that’s why I chose Scorpion.” Sir Ben Ainslie
Ben Ainslie chose the Scorpion RIB’s Serket 98 as his chase boat for his America's Cup campaigns because every part of the team, its boats, and its equipment has to be the best there is, and as Ben says ‘I want to work with the best, that’s why I chose Scorpion’.
Keeping pace with the AC45s and their larger counterparts, the AC72s, demands an extraordinary breed of the boat. With the catamarans traveling at up to 40 knots in choppy conditions, it’s a testing environment for all vessels but one in which the Serket thrived.
The Serket made an idea chase boat for Ben both on the water and off as, with its tubes deflated, the Serket 98 fits into a standard shipping container, simplifying transportation around the world.
Boat length 9.80m
Twin outboard. 2 x console options, powered bolster seat with aft facing bench seat and aft sculpted bench seating for four with forward sunbed area.
