Grandweld Wins Crew Boat Contract

March 13, 2013

Grandweld Shipyards has been awarded a contract to build a 42M Aluminum Crew Boat for Maroos Shipping.

 

Grandweld signed the deal with the renowned provider of integrated shipping, and marine services on the 10th March 2013. The contract follows previous delivery of a 38M Utility Vessel to Maroos Shipping in March 2012.  


The new 42M Aluminum Crew Boat is based on Grandweld’s existing proven design, and can reach speeds in excess of 25 knots. It benefits from luxury seating, accommodation for VIP guests, a larger deck space and enhanced comfort for the crew.


The vessel can seat 83 passengers and has a 110sqm loading area for over 90 tons of deck cargo. It can also carry a large amount of fuel and freshwater.


The contract with Maroos Shipping is the latest in a string of recent orders for the 42M Aluminum Crew Boat. It follows orders for the boat from Wesal Shipping in October 2012, and three for Global Marine, signed in August 2012.
The huge success of the 42M is down to its highly advanced design, plus a focus on safety and security. Crew boats have become an increasingly common feature in the Gulf region; a quality vessel such as the 42M will always attract plenty of new and repeat business.
