Grandweld Shipyards has been awarded a new contract to build 42M Aluminum Crew Boat for Wesal Shipping which was signed on the 9th October 2012.


This contract follows the successful delivery of the 41M Aluminum Crew Boat which Grandweld delivered to Wesal Shipping early in October 2010. The 42M Aluminum Crew Boat is a heavily modified version of the 41M, and is designed to reach a speed in excess of 25 knots and includes luxury seating, accommodation for VIP guests, larger deck space and enhanced comfort for the crew. The vessel features a total seating capacity for 83 passengers, 110sqm loading area for over 90 Tons of deck cargo, in addition to the capacity of carrying large amount of fuel and freshwater. The vessel will also have fully classed propulsion machinery.


The highly advanced design of the 42M Crew Boats has proven to be a huge success, and therefore has stimulated the demand for this class of vessels from new and repeat clients.



Furthermore, Grandweld Shipyards has signed a contract to deliver an additional 42M Crew Boat for the owner Global Marine, following the contract signed in August 2012, making this a total of three 42M Crew Boats.   Grandweld is pleased to receive repeat business from its clients as this is a reflection of the confidence our clients have in our products.



Grandweld has recently opened its 55,000sqm facility at Dubai Maritime City which is expected to expand the annual capacity in terms of number of new builds. Grandweld is currently undertaking the construction of more than 20 vessels of both steel and aluminum including: Seismic Support vessels, Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessels with DP2 capability, Work Maintenance vessels, Fast Intervention Supply vessels (FISV), Crew Boats and many more.
