Sarawak Slipways has delivered a long list of anchor handling tugs and off shore vessels for petroleum producers around the world. In mid-June this year the yard completed sea trials on one of their larger vessels.

The 61 by 14-meter Nautika Resolute is designated Offshore Utility Vessel and was built to a design by Wartsila Ship Design of Singapore. Accommodations is provided for 12 crew members and 58 passengers,
 
The vessel has a design speed of 12 knots but achieved 13.5 knots during sea trials. The positive hull design is driven through the water by a pair of IMO2 and EPA2 compliant Cummins QSK60M engines with modular common rail fuel systems. Each 2200 HP engine turns up to 1800 RPM into Twin Disc MGX5600 gears with 5:04:1 reduction. The shafts turn four-blade fixed pitch propellers with 1900 m/m diameters.
 
Tankage is provided for 600 metric tons of fuel and 250 mt of water. On the after deck a pair of ten-ton winches supplement the capabilities of a crane with a capacity of eight tons at 12 meters. The Nautika Resolute is built to ABS class.
