Litter Basket: The Litter Basket has a capacity of 99 cu ft / 2.8 cm that allows the Omni Catamaran to collect floating trash and debris in harbors, marinas and protected waterways. Strengthened corner points allow for secure crane hoisting. The forward gate is operated by the pilot at the console. Safety screens covering the basket are easily raised and lowered. A pilot controlled electric winch raises and lowers the forward section of the basket for less drag while underway. A four leg lifting harness is included.
Deck Plates: (Included) Standard non-slip aluminum tread plates provide a solid-surface working platform allowing the Omni Catamaran to be used as a general waterway maintenance vessel.

Pump Out Pod: The pump out pod is designed for servicing sewage holding tanks on boats allowing the Omni Catamaran to serve as a “valet” pump out boat. The pod’s holding tank is located below deck, adding to the stability of the Omni Catamaran. The pump system may also be used in emergency situations where pumping of a bilge or other location is needed. Pump out grants may be available for vessels equipped with these systems.
Wash-Down Pod: The wash-down pod features a gasoline power washer to spray river walks and docks.
Weed Cutter: The weed cutter is designed to cut invasive aquatic plants. The 4 ft wide cycle cutter is used in conjunction with the collection basket to trim and collect marine vegetation.
