The Piranha USV Concept is a long range unmanned concept vessel designed to demonstrate today’s latest materials technology and design theory. Advanced unmanned vessels enable a broad range of unmanned operations on the sea, reducing operational costs and unnecessary risks. Constructed out of carbon fiber nano-composites, the Piranha set new standards in range and payload for an unmanned vessel.

In 2010, Zyvex Marine manufactured its first prototype craft, the Piranha USV Concept, taking it from the drawing board and into the water in under one year. Carbon fiber nano-composites made the Piranha a generational leap beyond boats built out of traditional materials like fiberglass or aluminum.
In 2011, Zyvex Marine shipped the first production nano-composite vessel. It set new standards for an unmanned production vessel in the areas of range, speed, sea keeping and payload, fulfilling the promises made by the original Piranha USV Concept.

Based on the Piranha Concept, Zyvex Marine is is developing new maritime platforms, the LRV-17 and LRV-11 Concept, in both manned and unmanned configurations.
