Incat Crowther Announces Launch of Catamaran
Incat Crowther announced the launch of Outer Limit, a 35m Catamaran Work Boat for Offshore Unlimited. Launched by Richardson Devine Marine, Outer Limit is the third vessel for the operator since 2008.
The vessel will be able to carry 125t of deadweight with capacity for up to 56 passengers on day operations and 32 berths for overnight operations. Drawing on operational experience of Unlimited and Limitless, Outer Limit features numerous work spaces, with desks in every cabin and an upper deck workspace with 14 seats.
This workspace will be fitted with direct wire ways to the aft deck to allow for quick installation and
configuration of deck mounted equipment.
The vessel’s hulls house a further 6 cabins, 4 of which also feature a sliding joining partition. In addition to these cabins, the hulls house refrigerator and freezer rooms, as well as service and storage spaces which offer increased range and operational flexibility. The aft working deck features over 160 square meters of work space - enough to accommodate a quartet of 20 foot containers.
The vessel is powered by a pair of Caterpillar (CAT) C32 ACERT main engines, each producing 1600hp. Propulsion is achieved by by a pair of five-bladed propellers. In recent trials, Outer Limit achieved a loaded speed in excess of 22 knots.
