Teknicraft Design’s latest offshore support catamaran made a debut at the recent Oceanology 2014 conference held at the London ExCel Center in March. The MO1 was commissioned by Mainprize Offshore Ltd. of Scarborough, U.K. he 83’ aluminum catamaran features a new wave piercing hull shape and the vessel is fit with Teknicraft’s signature hydrofoil support system.

MO1 was purpose built to support the offshore wind farm industry, but the vessel has multi-mission capability and can easily support divers, hydrographic surveys, and geophysical work. MO1 has deck capacity for 40 metric tons and can provide transfers for 12 passengers in safety and comfort. Equally impressive is the vessels fuel capacity of over 9,500 gallons, which enables MO1 to deliver fuel to sites in need. The vessel can comfortably cruise at 25 knots and the Teknicraft hull design provides added comfort in choppy seas.

U.S. boat builder, All American Marine, Inc. will be promoting Teknicraft Design wind farm support catamarans in North America as the exclusive licensed builder. “We’ve been building Teknicraft catamarans for many years and it makes perfect sense for the wind farm industry to take advantage of this very fast, very stable, and fuel efficient design,” remarked Joe Hudspeth, Vice President of Business Development at All American Marine. All American Marine participated in demonstrations of the M01 during the Oceanology exhibition in preparation for the newly developing U.S. offshore wind market.
