kraken technology 32 1024x511 - HERITAGE

The team at Kraken have taken inspiration from vessels and maritime tactics from several historic designs including the wartime Motor Torpedo Boat (MTB) and PT Boats.

These remarkable boats were wooden-structured powerboats built for speed and survivability, and their crews embraced a ‘no gun too big’ approach to equipping them for swarm and skirmish attacks, often successfully defeating much larger enemy vessels through superior numbers and firepower.

The MTB became known as the ‘Spitfire of the Seas’ in recognition of its defence of British shores in WW2, whilst the US PT Boats caused havoc in the Pacific campaigns. 

As the makers of the MTB’s spiritual successor, Kraken Heritage CIC has been founded from a profound sense of responsibility to both honour and preserve this priceless maritime heritage, and to ensure that the contribution made by the ‘Iron Men in Wooden Boats’ is  recognised and preserved for future generations.
