also surpassed all contractual vessel performance requirements. Christened by her namesake, Mrs. Laurie Kirzner, the vessel holds a top speed of 30 knots, a normal operating speed of 28.5 knots and a contract loaded speed of 27.5 knots; Laurie Tide is the fastest 115 ft. class, propeller driven mono hull, oilfield crew boat ever built, says the company.
USCG-approved for 200 miles offshore and ABS classed, the vessel is powered by three Cummins engines producing 1,350-hp each closed coupled to a Reintjes Marine Gear. Electrical power plants consist of two Cummins 4 BT 3.9 engines coupled to a Newage Stamford 50 kW generator supplying electricity throughout the vessel.
The pilothouse is fully equipped with the latest electronic equipment, which includes two radars, GPS navigator, navtex receiver and color video sounders - all supplied by Furuno.
