Incat Crowther announced a contract to design two 98.5-ft aluminium monohull crewboats for service in Nigeria. Incat Crowther’s brief is to design vessels that are easy to construct and robust in operation, with simple systems; in line with the demands of the region. To be built by Cape Town-based Veecraft Marine, the project represents the start of a new collaboration between Incat Crowther and the South African shipyard.

Each vessel will feature a large working deck with guard rails. Available cargo space will be 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. The vessels will each be powered by three Caterpillar C32s producing 1,450 hp. Propulsion will be by three fixed-pitched propellers. Loaded service speed will be 25 knots.
