30m monohull crew boats by Veecraft Marine in South Africa

Incat Crowther has launched two 30m monohull crew boats by Veecraft Marine in South Africa.

 

Perez and Deborah are the first Incat Crowther-designed vessels to be built by Veecraft, and mark a fast-growing relationship between the yard and designer. Incat Crowther has developed a strong relationship with Veecraft Marine, and is pleased to be working with an accomplished shipyard in South Africa. The relationship not only gives Incat Crowther a presence in Africa, it also offers the builder access to a world-leading portfolio of marine designs.
The vessels will be delivered to C&I Leasing in Nigeria, where they will operate in support of offshore energy installations. The vessels were specifically designed to be robust in operation, with simple systems; in line
with the demands of the region.


Each vessel features a large working deck, protected by guard rails, with available cargo space of nearly 80m2. The main passenger cabin features doors forward and aft. There is a toilet and luggage rack aft, and comfortable seats for 30 passengers. The forward cabin doors lead directly to the bow transfer station, protected by handrails, which allows safe, direct transfer to oil rigs. The wheelhouse features both forward and aft control stations with excellent visibility.
 

Each of the vessels is be powered by 3 Caterpillar C32s producing 1450hp, with propulsion by fixed-pitched propellers. Loaded service speed is 25 knots. Perez and Deborah demonstrate Incat Crowther’s diversity in product range, and will be joined shortly by a 20m Crew boat for the same operator.
