With seating for 50 personnel and accommodation for a crew of eight, the vessel is powered by three Cummins engines turning fixed-pitch propellers.

All four engines are coupled to Twin Disc gears (Models MGX6690SC & MGX6848SC) with 2.47:1 ratios.
 

The KTA50M2 is also capable of driving a fire-fighting pump through a front mounted power-takeoff. Auxiliary power is provided by a pair of Cummins 6BT5.9DM-powered 80sW generators. The boat is fitted with an electric bow-thruster. All five Cummins engines were supplied by the Cummins Malaysia distributor Scott & English (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.
 

With three engines delivering a total of 4500 HP the crew boat can achieve a speed of 26 knots. Vessel name and owner has not yet been released.  It is classed by Bureau Veritas.
