The OSM 575 Speedliner Swamp Test

30th May 2019
Hoses, barrels and other paraphernalia needed to conduct a swamp test on the new OSM 575 Speedliner Hoses, barrels and other paraphernalia needed to conduct a swamp test on the new OSM 575 Speedliner

Not only is the OSM 575 Speedliner boat hand-made to the highest specifications, but we also take our customers' safety seriously writes Brian O'Sullivan of O'Sullivan's Marine.

Loading up the 19-foot OSM 575 Speedliner along with hoses, barrels and other paraphernalia needed to conduct a swamp test, we headed out to the canal to meet up with a Department of the Marine approved surveyor, to great success. The OSM 575 Speedliner is now passenger licence approved for both sea and lake.

OSM 575Boat building continues in Co Kerry… under construction and made to order for one of our customers, the OSM575 Speedliner. Buoyancy tanks fore and aft as well as along each side – these double as a shelf, for rod storage if required. 

Maintaining the conventional simulated clinker appearance and built to last using only top quality marine fittings and fibreglass materials, we have successfully incorporated a good turn of speed into this design.

Stability and an excellent drift pattern are strong features of this durable boat. The flared bow cuts through the waves while the long keel increases stability.

The main difference between the 19` Speedliner (OSM 575), and the rest of the boats in our seagoing pleasure and commercial range is speed. Achieving 20 knots with low horsepower outboard motors, this boat is also very economical to run.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
