Luckett’s Travel of Fareham has ordered a pair of DAF-powered Irizar Integral coaches from Irizar UK.
The vehicles are 12.9m long, 3.5m high versions of the i6, equipped with DAF MX 300 12.9 litre Engine (410 BHP) with ZF AS Tronic 12-speed gearbox.
The interior specification includes 53 seats with three-point belts, WC, Bosch radio/CD/DVD, two LCD monitors, CCTV along with the normal specification of an Irizar i6.
The coaches will be delivered in March and will be used on the firm’s day excursion and holiday programme, as well as private hire.
While on the firm’s holiday work, the coach will be configured with 49 seats and extended up to 53 seats for its second life.
Steve Luckett, director of Luckett’s Travel, said: “We’ve had a long running relationship with Irizar going back as far as 1995 and we currently have 35 Irizars in our fleet, the oldest being 1998. The i6 is an ideal product to carry on this buying strategy and with the weight benefits of an Integral construction, it gives us this opportunity to have dual seating configurations.”
