Incat Crowther announced the launch and delivery of BS Maresias. Built by Arpoador Engenharia Ltda, BS Maresias is the first of three 45m Monohull Crewboats meeting the specifications of the Petrobras P3-type crewboat for service in the Brazilian offshore oil fields.

The vessel’s design features a large aft main cargo deck optimized for cargo and crew transfers. The 78m2 cargo space has a cargo capacity of 150t.

The main cabin features seating for 60 passengers, two toilets, a beverage counter and large luggage racks.

Below deck accommodation includes galley, mess area, laundry space, four two-person staterooms with two shared heads, plus a single-person stateroom with private head.

Below deck tankage includes fuel oil and fresh water for both the ship’s use and cargo. Ship’s fuel exceeds 30,000 liters, whilst cargo fuel capacity exceeds 100,000 liters. There are also large grey and black water tanks, as well as large lube oil and waste oil tanks.

BS Maresias is powered by four Caterpillar C32 ACERT main engines. These turn a brace of Twin Disc MGX 6620 SC gearboxes, with main propulsion from Doen DJ 290 waterjets. Station will be maintained by a Rodriquez 200 hp tunnel bow thruster. Electric power will be provided by a pair of Cummins 60kW generators.

BS Maresias performed well in sea trials, exceeding 32 knots, whilst achieving high levels of comfort and noise suppression in the main passenger cabin.
