Incat Crowther announced that construction has commenced on a 28m Catamaran Utility Vessel. Under construction at Marine Diesel Services, the vessel will be delivered to Nordic Maritime.

The new vessel will build on the expertise and experience Incat Crowther demonstrated by vessels such as Unlimited, Limitless, Straight Shooter and Vejunas, resulting in one of the most capable and versatile vessel of its type and size.

With seating for 42 day personnel accommodation for an additional 10 overnight personnel, in addition to the vessel’s six operational crew, the vessel will perform seismic and crew supply roles in South East Asia.

The aft deck of the vessel measures 70sqm, with a 3t/m2 deck rating. It will be fitted out with pad eyes for towing, a 3-metric-ton A-Frame, an integrated winch base and a deck crane. There will also be multiple lashing points for tying down containers and other freight.

Dedicated to personnel in transit, the aft portion of the main deck cabin features a four-person cabin, changing room, bathroom, showers, medevac, seats for 42 and ample luggage racks. Personnel accommodation continues in the starboard hull with a four-person cabin and a two-person cabin, both with en-suites.

The forward end of the main deck cabin features a crew galley and mess, as well as access to the port hull, which accommodates six crew in an arrangement that mirrors the personnel accommodation in the starboard hull.

The hulls also house a cool room, a pantry and a laundry, further enhancing the vessel’s long-range credentials.

The vessel will be powered by a pair of Caterpillar C18 main engines, each producing 533kW. The vessel’s service speed will be 12 knots, with a top speed of 16 knots.

The vessel will be classed by ABS and is due to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2014.
