Seacor Marine Christens First Crewzer Class Vessel

Wednesday, February 20, 2008
SEACOR Marine LLC christened its first CrewZer Class vessel, the SEACOR CHEETAH, in Galveston, Texas. Joyce McCall, wife of nearly fifty years to offshore industry pioneer Norman McCall, acted as the vessel's sponsor in recognition of her life-long contribution to the McCall legacy. The SEACOR CHEETAH was designed to provide customers a faster and more stable delivery platform than the industry standard. After examining various hull types, SEACOR chose the Catamaran's twin-hull design for its ability to reach top speeds in excess of 40 knots while increasing passenger comfort and safety. The SEACOR CHEETAH enables logistics managers to establish efficient loop-style routes between high-traffic platforms and shore-base operations. Following an evaluation of several personnel transfer methods, SEACOR selected Reflex Marine to develop the 9-person FROG personnel transfer system. Built at Gulf Craft shipyard, the SEACOR CHEETAH is equipped with state-of-the-art electronics, communications and navigation systems. Its DP-2 rating, combined with its wide, stable work deck allows the vessel to hold station in weather conditions where other vessels simply could not work.
