Advantages

The Quer 40 Taxiboat has many advantages like very low fuel consuption (20 litres per hour) and a extremly high level of comfort for passengers and crew.

SPEED (40 knots)

The design of the Taxiboat and its technology allow this boat to attain speeds above 40 knots with a comfortable cruising speed of 34 knots, together with a stable and safe ride.

LOW CONSUMPTION

The mechanical department of the shipyard studies and personalizes the needs of our clients according to their business needs. The aim is to determine what type of power unit will the client need in order to operate at the optimum motoring rate. If we add the ideal power unit to the high performance Quer hulls, we obtain a very low fuel consumption without sacrificing their trademark speed.

AT SEA

The Taxiboat is agile, very manoeuvrable, stable and, above all, very fast. Fast even without having to install high power engines to obtain high speeds. The ride on a Taxiboat is defined by an optimum wave passing very high turning rate, compared to conventional hulls.

SAFETY

The shipyard is sited at Port de la Selva, in the northern shore of the Cap de Creus, an are often lashed by the tramontana winds, a solid construction it is therefore an integral part of these hulls. Quer Barcelona had to take into account that its boats had to sail with rough weather in order to be able to cover as many days of the year as possible.

RELIABILITY

To be able to trust a boat when underway at sea is clear, that is why the Taxiboat is designed and thoroughly tested to offer a high level of reliability. This has been achieved by fitting the most advanced and reliable equipment available, this eliminating any unnecessary risks of breakdowns.

ON DECK SPACE AND QUER PLATFORM

The simplicity, distribution and generous beam of the Taxiboat give a surprisingly large amount of space to accommodate our clients in own “Recaro” seats, designed for pleasant seating.

Materials

Have you noticed the type of materials used to build F1 cars? And America’s Cup boats? Carbon fibre is the preferred material for competition craft. The Taxiboat could not be different.
The shipyard of the Taxiboat uses carbon, laminating it onto a honeycomb structure. These two materials together achieve a rigid body that does not absorb energy, resist torsion and impacts. Its great resistance enables a lesser thickness, further lightening the structure of the hull.
The shipyard of the Taxiboat uses the best resins and polyester fillers, they work with the best suppliers of metal fittings, upholstery and electronic accessories. The accessories are designed at the shipyard to guarantee its highest quality.
The Taxiboat is built only with the most advanced materials of the highest quality.

 

Systems

The Quer 40 Taxiboat, the vessel star of the professional range uses only the newest and best materials nowadays offered.

WATER DRAINING

The Taxiboat is perfectly designed for quickly channeling the existence of water (rain, shower, hosing …) into your drains. These drains are provided with a large flow pipe and a filter to remove any impurities thus facilitating cleaning.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS

The electrical system is properly protected ringed sheath, preventing corrosion, vibration absorbing and giving protection on direct and indirect contacts. Our systems are conveniently labeled in each of the branch lines leading to the identification of proper wiring. In each of the locking connections compounds have terminals of materials that do not allow corrosion.

 

FUEL SYSTEMS

Deposits of our boats are made of aluminum and are installed in naval special requirements defined by the yard: are welded and fixed to the hull by an elastomeric high tenacity, but also they are located on pads to ensure durability nitride reducing friction. The fuel lines are in copper to ensure maximum reliability and all hoses DIN standards applied still in construction and CE approval.
