'Bourbon Norte' is the 4th in a series of 53m offshore Fast Passenger & Supply Vessel (FPSV) for Bourbon.

With more than 100 crew-boats built since 1995 in France, Nigeria and Vietnam, Piriou says it has become one of the world's leading aluminium crew boat builders.

These four units delivered to Bourbon, the first ships in a brand new series, are the largest in the multipurpose range of FPSVs developed by Piriou which includes vessels from 19 to 53m.
These new designs offer a series of particularly sought after characteristics:

Improved lightship and loaded speeds with constant consumption
• Improved economy regime consumption
• Improved passenger comfort with a "business class" cabin as a possible option

These versatile aluminium ships are to be used for the offshore oil industry and allow the transport of personnel and freight on the deck.

Pascal Piriou said "After 9 months of operation, our 53m FPSV prototype has lived up to its ambitions. It is economical both in terms of purchase and operating costs, ergonomic and has a remarkable, attractive design. The vessel is therefore a success, and we intend to capitalise on it in the very near future with new orders and with smaller versions, starting in particular with a 40m model".
