The The design reflects demand for greater lift and outreach capabilities. The vessel’s equipment outfit takes account of market needs. The ships will have a pair of state-of-the-art rotating mast cranes, with a combined lift capacity of 1,600 tons at 16 m outreach and a maximum outreach of 35 m. The vessel’s shallow draft of 6.5 m maintains the small port operational capability that is the basis of the Jumbo fleet.
