Thursday, July 09, 2009

Alnmaritec, an aluminum boat builder based in Northumberland, UK, recently announced the delivery of a new general purpose line handling and harbor support work boat to Western Australia. The “Wave Train” was built for South Sea Logistics Ltd., based in Geraldton, Western Australia. She is a customized version of the “Wave Angler” class of vessels from Alnmaritec and is the first boat that the company has ever sold to Australia.

“Wave Train” is an aluminum asymmetric catamaran 10.15 long and 4.8m wide with a displacement of around 11 tons. She is fitted with twin 355bhp Cummins QSB diesel engines driving through conventional ZF gearboxes to a pair of Hamilton 292 waterjets. These give her an intended top speed of 22 knots and a bollard pull of 2 tons. She was designed to carry 3 crew and 6 passengers and she has a large working deck aft which is serviced by a Palfinger PK 2500 hydraulic knuckle boom crane and a 2 ton hydraulic capstan.
