The new model is the newest and largest platform of the Zodiac Hurricane range and had its world debut in 2017.
Spotted on board on her harbour tour was Crosshaven RNLI's James Fegan and his wife Caroline.
Also invited onboard in Cork Harbour were members of Mallow Search and Rescue who, according to its Facebook page, travelled to the Harbour's Naval base for a demo day with Zodiac Milpro.
Dubbed the Interceptor, the ZH-1300 demo boat shows the nimble manoeuvrability normally associated with smaller craft and, say Zodiac, it addresses the needs of end users in the Military and Patrol boat market for larger platforms, with focus on speed, handling and stability.
The boat is designed around an aluminium hull and deck and features the 'MACH 2' stepped-hull design.
Based on proven 9- and 11-meter MACH II hull models, the larger size allows for higher payloads and additional deck space, while providing superior seakeeping and higher speed capability in rough water conditions.
The patented Hybrid shaped collar features round sections at the bow and D-shape sections in the aft two-thirds, while the Durarib™ patented foam and air technology design provides exceptional strength and impact resistance. The collar is also equipped with an auto-inflation system and integrated dive door.
