Incat Crowther announced the launch of the 57.4-ft catamaran, Santa Ana, and the completion of extensive sea trials. The Santa Ana is specificaly designed for the wind farm service industry. Built by Lyme Boats in the UK, Santa Ana features Incat Crowther’s hull form. Operator P&O Maritime Services saw the platform’s potential for wind farm service and worked with Lyme Boats and Incat Crowther to develop the vessel’s design.

Santa Ana is distinguished by its twin cargo areas, one aft and one on the foredeck. The aft cargo area has space for a 10-ft sea container and has a capacity of 10 tonnes. The foredeck cargo zone has capacity for four tonnes. The vessel is designed to interface with wind farm pylons, allowing transfer of crew and cargo over the bow, stern or alongside. To enhance the flexibility of the vessel there are crane bases located on the foredeck as well as the upper deck outboard. This will allow the operator flexibility to configure the crane location as necessary for the contracted service.
Between these two cargo areas is the main cabin, featuring seating for 12 passengers with tables, lockers, a large galley and lounge, as well as wet room and shower facilities. On the upper deck is the wheelhouse with excellent vision of both cargo areas. Safety is further enhanced by the addition of pilot-style windows in the forward wheelhouse roof, which afford the operator the ability to observe the platform and crew heading up the turbine ladder.
Accessed from the main deck cabin, the hulls feature tank spaces amidships and two twin cabins each side forward.
