In the midst of a significant down turn in the worldwide demand for new crewboats, Strategic Marine is delivering vessels from their Singapore shipyard as well as their new Mexican yard. Recently delivered from the Singapore shipyard the 101.7-ft by 24.6-ftr crew boat Colibri I.
 
Built for Indonesias Baruna Raya Logistics the new vessel is the fourth such vessel delivered to the Indonesian company. With seating for 50 rig workers and accommodations for up to eight crewmembers, the ABS certified vessel (type approval +A1HSC, CREWBOAT +AMS) also features a hospital with bed and its own shower/toiled and entry off the main deck.
 
Three Cummins KTA38 M2 engines with ABS-type approval provide power for the 24-knot vessel. Each engine develops 1,200 HP at 1,800 RPM with a continuous rating. The center engine is set slightly further aft than the two wing engines and has a manually operated clutch to connect its front end to a fire pump. All three engines turn propellers through Twin Disc gears. The center engine, with the fire pump, is hard mounted while the two wing engines and their gears have resilient mounts.
 
Auxiliary power is provided by two Cummins 6BT 5.9D (M) powered 80 kW generators. The vessel has a fuel capacity of approximately 30,000 litres of fuel in four main tanks plus one day-tank. The Colibri I also has tankage for 7,000 litres of water. Both fuel and water systems include transfer pumps.
