Versatility

Super Shallow Draft

WAM-V 8 can operate in as little as 6 inches of water. Have the confidence to go into shallow water environments without damaging the hulls or propulsion system.


Maneuverability

Better On Track Performance

The WAM-V 8 ASV, like all WAM-Vs, can turn 360 degrees within its own length. The result is better path following and greater maneuverability in congested areas.
