Thai Boats for Thai Waters

Thursday, January 17, 2008
Marsun Company Limited has built a strong reputation in the building of GRP, steel and aluminum military, patrol and pleasure vessels. In 2004 they built a successful crewboat. More recently they have won a significant contract to build six 36 by 7.6-meter crewboats for operation in the Gulf of Thailand. By mid-January fabrication of the first two vessels was well underway for a scheduled September 2008 delivery. The balance of the order will follow in sets of two every three months.

Built to an evolved design from their own naval architects, the boats will have seating for 92 passengers and full accommodation for ten although the crew size will be eight. Main propulsion will be three Cummins KTA38 M2 each generating 1350 HP at 1950 RPM. The engines will turn propellers through Twin Disc MGX6690 gears with 2.47:1 ratios. Auxiliary power for each vessel will be two Cummins 6BT-powered 90 kW Stamford generators. Tankage will include 50 cubic meters of fuel and 20 cubic meters of potable water. The 90 square meter open aft deck will carry up to 100 tons of cargo. Design speeds for the B.V. classed vessels is 25 knots with 30 tons of cargo. The vessels will be owned by a Singapore/Thai joint venture firm Uniwise Offshore Ltd. and chartered to oil industry participants.
