we have two ! This is "the wash monster" below should be "the skylarc". We've had this one in service for 14 years ! the skylarc was commissioned last summer, the pictures below were taken as we were due to depart from Hunstanton for a trip to Skegness & on the beach with the ramp down, we took a car with us. How does she handle ? with a triple rudder & 4huge wheels all on the same hydraulic system she will turn almost in her own length,on land with 4 wheel steer she's pretty nimble too.Two,300Hp v8 12.8 litre engines you should hear her roar !

I remember regularly walking past one of these in a small dockside yard in Great Yarmouth. It never moved and looked like it need a bit of TLC (or it was just really dirty), shame if it never was used again.

Nice to see what they look like working.

Apparently it was the one I used to see in Yarmouth.
They are quite the thing to see in the flesh, I can only imagine the sound the engines made though.

Any videos washmonster?

The machine at Moreton is a Baby one in the LARC world. It is a LARC v(5 TON).The LARC lx is the big one, a massive thing on 4wheels with 4 engines & 2 props. It's fair weather load is 100 tons. Skylarc.
