Strategic Marine, a specialist shipbuilder in Asia-Pacific, delivered the Jati Five crew transfer vessel to Malaysian owner, Dinasti Jati Sdn Bhd. The company also confirmed it has received an order for two additional ships in the range, the Jati Six and Jati Eight.
The Jati Five, ordered last year and completed to one of Strategic Marine’s established in-house designs, was delivered at the company’s regional shipyard headquarters in Singapore. It is the third vessel Strategic has delivered to Dinasti Jati since 2009.
The Jati Five’s aluminium superstructure was assembled at Strategic’s yard in Vietnam then shipped to Singapore for fittings and technical completion.
The 40-meter, 50dwt vessel is classed by ABS, can carry up to 58 passengers, and operates with a crew of 10. It features three Kummins KTA engines and can achieve speeds up to 25 knots. It bears +A1 HSC / +AMS notation.
Underscoring Strategic’s ongoing commitment to Dinasti Jati and Malaysia’s entire owner/operator sector, Strategic is due to deliver the Jati Six in the third quarter of this year, with the larger (70 pax) Jati Eight to follow next year.
