Grandweld Shipyards commemorated the delivery of the second of three 41M crew boats in a ceremony held at Grandweld facility in Dubai Maritime City. This marks Grandweld’s seventh delivery in 2011.
Global Queen, an advanced version of the 41m crew boat, is the 18th of its type to be built from a series of sister vessels that were initially launched by Grandweld in 2006. This vessel will represent the third generation of its series with enhanced design and superior performance compared to the two previous generations. 
“The new 41M is an advanced version of a highly successful series of crew boats. The diverse features of the 41M will allow it to perform the duties of the Fast Crew Boat and Offshore Supply vessels to support offshore oil and gas operations.” explained Jamal Abki, Grandweld General Manager.
The vessel has achieved speeds in excess of 26 knots and is equipped with external fire fighting, offshore crane, separate VIP passenger area, and security capabilities. A third vessel “Global Princess” is being built at Grandweld Shipyards at al Jadaf, and is scheduled for delivery on December 2011.
